Brussels 2012: George Igler’s Speech

ICLA logo (new)

George Igler is the founder of the British free speech think-tank Discourse, which was granted observer status at the Brussels Conference.

Discourse is not concerned with ideological or partisan considerations, and instead focuses on the mounting trend in Britain of the state seeking to regulate, control and limit speech and expression; and to imprison those who engage in infractions. Consequently, regardless of the prominence, political affiliation or religious views of an individual or organization prosecuted or legislated against for exercising free speech: Discourse is committed to recording and investigating their case.

Below is the speech given by George Igler at the Brussels Conference on July 9, 2012. Many thanks to Europe News for recording this video, and to Vlad Tepes for uploading it:
