Tony Bunyan is one of the stalwarts of the civil liberties movement in the UK and Europe. As a journalist, writer and founder of Statewatch he's been at the very forefront of monitoring what governments and the European Union have been doing in our name (but without our knowledge). The Irish Council for Civil Liberties is bringing him to Dublin next Saturday (20th June) to talk about his new report, "The Shape of Things to Come" - and I can't recommend this event highly enough to anyone interested in law, technology and civil liberties. It will be held in The Blue Room, Law Society of Ireland, Blackhall Place, Dublin 7 (map) at 3.30pm. The talk is free but spaces are limited so if you'd like to go, contact Joanne Garvey (Tel: 01-7994504 or E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) to ensure a place.
Update: The Irish Times has a report from the talk.
