A human rights event has been cancelled because of the presence of feminist group Women Speak Tas (.WST)

Last week, WST spokesperson Isla MacGregor told Brian Carlton that former anti-discrimination commissioner, Robin Banks, had written to the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WIPF) regarding WST speaking at their human rights forum this week.

Since then, WILPF has received strong correspondence against WST speaking at the event, and was told it would be seen as an endorsement of WST’s views, which the LGBTQI community oppose.

Isla MacGregor joins Brian Carlton this morning to talk about this latest turn of events, and says that they will not allow their free speech to be silenced.
