Big Brother Watch is once again participating in the Freedom Zone at Conservative Conference, hosting two meetings with a range of excellent speakers.
On the Sunday, I’ll be discussing the European Arrest Warrant, and the urgent need to reform its use. Speakers include Nick de Bois MP, leader of the Conservatives in the European Parliament Martin Callanan MEP, Dominic Raab MP and Andrew Symeou, a victim of European Arrest Warrant. (Sunday 2 October: 4.45pm: The European Arrest Warrant: Time for Urgent Reform)
Monday will see a broader discussion of the Coalitions’ track record on civil liberties and what the remaining years of the Parliament may hold. Speakers include Conor Burns MP, David Jones MP and former Big Brother Watch Director, Dan Hamilton. (Monday 3 October, 3.15pm: Freedom, Privacy and Civil Liberties: Where next for the Coalition?)
I will also be speaking at a Taxpayers Alliance event looking at Digital Policy under the Coalition. I’ve promised to try to keep my opinions on Cliff Richard under wraps during what is sure to be a lively fringe meeting. (Tuesday 4 October, 1.45pm: Digital Policy Under the Coalition)
So if you’ll be around at Conference, do step into one of our events, we’d love to see you there. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @bbw1984 to see our latest news, blogs and information from across the weekend.
