Free Speech Union panel on how free speech serves minorities

We are constantly being told that minorities demand censorship to feel welcomed and safe in society. Scant evidence is ever tabled to defend this assertion though plenty exists to contradict it.

Filmed at the NZ Free Speech Union’s 2022 AGM, this spirited panel discussion focused on free speech and minority groups, presenting arguments as to why this central progressive value has been indispensable to the fortunes of ethnic and religious groups and the LGBT community. On the panel were Danish Free Speech advocate Jacob McChangama (the esteemed guest of the AGM), Jewish Council spokesperson Juliet Moses, ACT MP Karen Chhour and Dr. David Bromell. An often-feisty Q & A follows the initial discussion.
