Bernardi, Shelton and Devine to headline Brisbane free speech forum

October 30, 2018

Whether it is QUT students sued under Section 18C, supporters of marriage labelled “bigots” or questioners of climate alarmism vilified as “deniers”, freedom of speech has never been less free in Australia’s history.

It is in this atmosphere of stifling Political Correctness that the Young Conservatives are pushing back with their fifth and final free speech forum for 2018.

Conservative Party Leader Cory Bernardi, News Limited columnist and broadcaster Miranda Devine, Conservative Senate Candidate for Queensland Lyle Shelton and Young Conservatives rising star Dannii Starrs will headline this Thursday night’s forum at New Farm in Brisbane.

This week’s event follows successful forums in Townsville, Mackay, Cairns, and the Gold Coast which have featured the likes of sacked James Cook University professor Peter Ridd, Canadian free speech activist Lauren Southern, Australian Christian Lobby Queensland Director Wendy Francis, persecuted former army officer Bernard Gaynor and former Manus Island security guard Michael Coates.

Mr Shelton said he was privileged to have spoken at each event and applauded the Young Conservatives for their initiative.

“Young people have very good BS detectors and can see through the use of labels, slurs or anti-discrimination laws to shut down free debate.”

Thursday’s forum is open to the public and is designed to keep the public square open to discussion on issues elites want shut down.

The Brisbane Free Speech Forum - Has Political Correctness Gone Too Far? will be held at Riverside Receptions, 50 Oxlade Drive, New Farm from 7pm on Thursday November 1 2018.
