Speakers’ Corner 2.0: Drug Law Reform
WHERE: The Domain, opposite the Art Gallery of NSW
For 140 years Speakers’ Corner has been open to everyone every Sunday.
When controversial issues like conscription have been discussed, over 100,000 have gathered in The Domain to listen and learn. Prime Ministers, playwrights and plumbers have all addressed the crowds.
With a live stream inviting comments and questions from all over the world, Speakers' Corner 2.0 aims to broaden the discussion. Think TED talks mixed with Q&A but back to the literal grassroots where anyone has a chance to participate.
Join Speakers' Corner 2.0 on Sunday April 7th, where their speakers will be discussing drug law reform in Australia, including pill testing at festivals, sniffer dogs and strip searches, and the 'Portugal model' of decriminalisation.
