On Monday 30 Nov 2015, Iranian ex-Muslim, liberal free-thinker and feminist, Maryam Namazie, was going to give her speech entitled “Apostasy, Blasphemy and Free Expression in the Age of ISIS” at the Goldsmith University, as she had done at previous universities. Not even 10 minutes into her speech disgusting, religious bullies from the Goldsmiths ISOC (the university’s Islamic society) interrupted her, tried to hijack her speech, intimidate and bully her. Just revolting!
But like a real trooper and classy lady she persevered and finished her very important talk. If the actions of those university Islamic Society members weren’t abhorrent enough the university Feminist society and the LGBTIQ society sided with the religious bullies!!!!!!! WTF?!?!? Islam teaches men are in charge of women and homosexuality is punishable by death and yet these ‘liberal’, Regressive Lefts’ sided with people who displayed absolutely disgusting and disgraceful behaviour! We are living in George Orwell’s 1984. Freedom of speech is dead and censorship through intimidation and bullying is rewarded.
Below is her talk and the feral, religious bullies who tried to shut her down. I hope they are dealt with swiftly and firmly as the Goldsmiths University Atheist, Secularist and Humanist society (who invited Maryam) are lodging a formal complaint against Goldsmiths ISOC.
