Your Skepticism is Banned

A session at Nine Worlds 2015

Friday 7th August, 2015

1:30pm to 2:45pm (GMT)

From outlawing atheism and "blasphemy" and religious non-conformism - to persecutory speech and outright violent attacks against satirists, freethinkers, and human rights advocates - expressing skepticism of the status quo is actually becoming harder than ever in many parts of the world. Bob Churchill, editor of the IHEU Freedom of Thought Report, an annual analysis of discrimination and human rights violations against the nonreligious globally, will outline the basis for "freedom of thought and expression", violations against these rights for the religious and non-religious alike, and what can be done to push back.
