Add to Calendar 2019-11-05 18:00 2019-11-05 20:00 Australia/Brisbane Politics in the Pub Where’s the line? Freedom of opinion and expression is held dear to most of us, however Australia has less legislated protection of free speech than most other Western countries. Calls for change are coming from many directions. It’s time we talked about religious protection, protest and activism, public nuisance, acts of terrorism, journalistic freedom, online discourse, and the role of censorship. Are our current rules for individual behaviour enough? Should the rules should be different for public figures? How do we maintain a healthy, active democracy at the same time as protecting public safety? Location: Turbine Platform Brisbane Powerhouse, 119 Lamington Street, New Farm
