To mark Press Freedom Day, there is a debate tonight (7 pm) at the Backbencher on the moot “That politicians pay the price of a free press”.
The cost is $25, which includes finger food. Proceeds go to the Asia-Pacific Solidarity and Safety Fund which basically provides welfare to the families of journalists killed doing their job.
The debaters are:
- Annette King
- Darren Hughes
- Simon Bridges
- Tom Scott
- Jane Clifton
- Barry Soper
They are all very amusing speakers, so should be a fun evening.
You can pay at the door, but if you do plan to go, it is useful to e-mail Brent Edwards so they can cater for the right numbers.Tags: Annette King, Barry Soper, Darren Hughes, Humour, Jane Clifton, Media, Simon Bridges, Tom Scott
