London Humanist Hustings: European Elections 2014


Central London Humanist are pleased to be working with the BHA, the European Humanist Federation and Conway Hall Ethical Society to bring you this great opportunity to talk to candidates and quiz them about their policies on issues that matter to you..

The event is FREE to attend but


The need for a strong humanist stance in Europe is more important now than ever. Developing radical populism and reactionary conservatism in many member states has given rise to xenophobia, homophobia and anti-democratic activity. Combined with the weight of powerful religious lobbies, the task facing the Humanism movement in Europe is great.

We will be expecting a lively question and answer session surrounding these issues, and the challenges facing humanists in Europe today.

The discussion will address key issues of interest to humanists in the EU, such as:

• Secularism and European institutions;

• Defence of the rule of law, democracy and human rights;

• Scientific research policy

• and International Relations.
