FROM GB NEWS TO BEN & JERRY’S: BOYCOTTS OR CENSORSHIP?

Filmed at the Battle of Ideas Festival, a compelling panel give us plenty to chew on. Are boycotts simply legitimate expressions of preference or political opinion? Or, if they stray into the territory of suppressing political debate, do they then become more of a threat?

Are boycotts an attack on free expression or a weapon for those fighting for accountability?

The speakers are: Nick Buckley MBE – Charity founder, writer, former mayoral candidate Jodie Ginsberg – Chief Executive, Internews Europe Fraser Myers – Deputy Editor, spiked; producer, spiked podcast Peter Whittle – Founder and Director, New Culture Forum.

The Chair is Paddy Hannam – Editorial Assistant, spiked.
