Maryam and Nahla: Warwick University and win for free expression

Hello
We wanted to write to give you an update on the initial decision to bar Maryam from speaking at Warwick University by its Student Union. After protests, the SU has apologised; her talk to Warwick Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Society will go ahead as planned.
Whilst many have celebrated this small win for free expression, it has ruffled the feathers of Islamists and their apologists like Comment is Free's David Shariatmadari. Here is Maryam's response to his deceptive conflation of much-needed criticism with bigotry against people: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/oct/13/islamism
 
If you'd like to read the unedited version, with all the relevant links, it's on Maryam's blog: http://freethoughtblogs.com/maryamnamazie/2015/10/13/the-guardian-through-i slamist-eyes/
Maryam looks forward to speaking at Warwick this month. Interestingly, she will also be speaking at Trinity College Dublin following the cancellation of her talk a while back due to similar "concerns": http://freethoughtblogs.com/maryamnamazie/2015/03/23/tcd-2/.
You can find out about our various speaking engagements and events here: http://ex-muslim.org.uk/category/events/. These include a talk by Tom Holland and a Kafir comedy night this month as well as end-year drinks in December with wonderful speakers, music and food. Space is limited so be sure to get your tickets as soon as possible.
 
Update on hate campaign against Nahla Mahmoud
Salah al Bander continues to use his Lib Dem credentials to further his hate campaign against Nahla Mahmoud. CEMB is calling on the Lib Dems to disassociate itself from al Bander: http://ex-muslim.org.uk/2015/10/lib-dems-must-publicly-disassociate-from-al -banders-hate-campaign/.

We plan to hand-in the statement with others at 10 Downing Street to mark 10 December, Human Rights Day. If you and/or your organisation would like to sign the statement, there’s still time.
