Support the fight back. Join us for the launch of a special new report on Lawfare.

About this Event

In recent months, there have been a number of examples of civil law procedures being used for political purposes in a way that poses serious risks to fundamental democratic rights.

After a month-long investigation, Truth Defence is launching a special report in Lawfare in the UK, chronicling examples in which defamation actions have targeted progressive activists on social media. This practice has parallels elsewhere, including in the US, and there is emergent evidence that the law needs to be changed in order to protect freedom of speech in the online sphere.

Join us 7-8.30pm on 26th November for an online panel discussion of the issues underlying our report.

Panellists include Sir Geoffrey Bindman QC, Peter Jukes of Byline Times and Jane Heybroek QC.
