Libertarian Alliance Unveils Largest Ever
Events Programme for 2008:
Save these Dates
Release: Friday 14th December 2007
The UK’s most radical free market group has launched its most ambitious annual programme to date, with a range of activities geared towards people who are interested in free market and libertarian ideas. In 2008, events for students are one priority for the Libertarian Alliance, as is the first annual LA Chris R Tame Lecture.
The Libertarian Alliance’s President Tim Evans and Director Sean Gabb today unveiled plans for the LA’s largest ever programme of events during 2008.
Dr Evans said:
“In 2008, the Libertarian Alliance will improve and expand its operations on all fronts. Next year will see the inaugural LA Chris R Tame Lecture, six dinners for Libertarian students from universities throughout the UK, and a Christmas Reception at the National Liberal Club.”
He added: “In addition to this, the LA will also host a further expanded LA Annual Conference in October 2008 and ten monthly LA Gold Subscribers’ Dinners in Westminster’s Shepherd’s Restaurant.”
However, Dr Evans explained that after 20 years, the monthly Putney Debates would be reduced to taking place every three months, but remaining on the second Friday of January, April, July and October.
“The original purpose of the Putney Debates was to provide a regular meeting place and somewhere for newcomers to the Libertarian cause to make friends and exchange ideas. The emergence of on-line social networks is creating new ways of achieving this objective. By expanding the range and quality of activities, the Putney Debates will become only one of many activities available to our supporters.”
In addition to this ambitious programme the organisation will also continue to expand its web site at http://www.libertarian.co.uk/ and its blog at http://www.libertarianallianceblog.com/ It will also continue to publish and freely distribute on-line a wide range of new pamphlets and press releases. And it will no doubt continue to attract widespread press and media attention.
