Facebook and Google to be quizzed on whether the internet is safe for free speech

Index on Censorship is to host a debate on the internet and free speech at the Free Word Centre in London, tonight [12 May] at 6.30 pm.

It will feature:

  • Richard Allan, director of policy EU, Facebook
  • Anthony House, European policy and communications manager, Google
  • Gus Hosein, policy director, Privacy International
