FIL speaker Maryam Namazie barred from Warwick

Maryam Namazie, the prominent secular activist, has been banned from speaking to the Atheist Society at Warwick in case she offends Muslims (who presumably wouldn't be at the Atheist Society anyway!) Speaking to the Independent, she said that "If people like me who fled an Islamist regime can't speak out about my opposition to the far-right Islamic movement, if I can't criticise Islam... that leaves very [few] options for me as a dissenter because the only thing I have is my freedom of expression."

You can hear Maryam speak at Feminism in London on the topic of secularism.
