The Defamation Bill became the Defamation Act 2013 last month. It’s time to celebrate its successes and the campaigning effort.
Can you join us downstairs at the Penderel’s Oak pub in Holborn, London WC1V 7HP on Thursday 16th May from 6.30pm?
This will be almost exactly four years since David Allen Green assembled scientists, bloggers, skeptics, comedians and authors at Penderel’s Oak to discuss Simon Singh’s case and what could be done. That gathering started the Keep Libel Laws out of Science campaign which led to the Libel Reform Campaign. Many of the people who addressed that original meeting will be there again on Thursday 16th May to reflect on all that’s been achieved and to raise a glass to libel reform. We hope you can join us too.
We will be quite restricted on numbers downstairs so entry will be by registration list. Please let us know as soon as possible if you intend to come. If the demand is high enough we will take over the upstairs of the Penderel’s Oak too and the Red Lion across the road. The speakers will get around to everybody on the night.
The Libel Reform Campaign will also be holding a bigger, broader event on the new law and a drinks party on 12th June... More on that very soon.
