Oh, excellent:

Free Speech and the Danish Cartoons

Danish cartoons depicting Muhammad have sparked a worldwide controversy. Death threats and violent protests have sent the cartoonists into hiding and have had the intended effect of stifling freedom of expression. The reaction to these cartoons raises urgent questions whose significance goes far beyond a set of drawings.

Come ask your questions about freedom of speech, the Danish cartoons, and the issues they have raised at a panel discussion. The cartoons will be on display.

When: Tuesday, April 25th, 7pm. Doors open at 6:30

Where: Kent 107

Panelists: Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education; Tom Flynn, editor of Free Inquiry magazine; Dr. Yaron Brook, president of the Ayn Rand Institute

Tickets: $2, in the Reynold’s Club (5706 South University) between 11am and 2pm on April 20, 21, 24. Remaining tickets will be sold at the door. Those who find it inconvenient to purchase advance tickets on campus may email rebkna@uchicago.edu to reserve them.
