Taking Liberties

A new film is about to be released detailing just many freedoms we’ve lost since Blair&Co came into power a decade ago. Taking Liberties has its first public screening today at Warwick University before being more widely released later in June.

The film takes as its themes six areas of policy where New Labour have taken away civil liberties we had previously enjoyed in this country: the Right to protest, free speech, privacy, detention without trial, extradition, and torture.

But looking at the Cinema listings page, it appears that there are only a very few chances to see the film in a theatre outside London. If you’re fortunate enough to have a local art cinema, why not drop them a line to ask them to consider showing the film?

In the mean time, the trailer’s on their website and on Youtube!
