FGM campaigns: advancing the cause of freedom?
How do you rate in these two tests regarding advancing the cause of freedom and liberty?
How well do you think anti-FGM campaigners fare? Listen as Jan Macvarish asks whether our politics takes us towards or away from freedom.
The charity WORLDwrite which celebrates its 21st birthday this year and its Citizen TV station WORLDbytes, launched a Pop-Up Video Booth at the 2015 Battle of Ideas to mark the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta and inflate the debate on the liberty we need.
From free speech, press freedom, freedom of movement, free association to the everyday freedoms we need, liberty lovers were invited to enter an inflatable booth and share their thoughts to camera to raise the banner for unfettered freedom. Relayed live to the big screen, 80 speakers, guests and volunteers inspired attendees with their 1 minute take on liberty over a 4 hour period.
WORLDbytes is a unique online Citizen TV channel set up and run by the education charity WORLDwrite. Dedicated to advancing new knowledge, skills and ideas, the charity promotes excellence in citizen reporting and provides free training to volunteer-learners which combines practical film making with tackling challenging issues.
