Here's the full set of pics for the National Secular Society's Secularism 2019 convention, which took place on Saturday 18 May at the Tower Hotel, London. (Click on the first image below to see all the images.)
The event included the Secularist of the Year award, presented by Geoffrey Robertson QC, to Saif ul Malook, the Pakistani lawyer who defended Asia Bibi in the face of death threats.
Keith Porteous Wood also presented a Lifetime Achievement award to NSS Past President Barbara Smoker.
(I took all these pics in an unofficial capacity from the audience, without flash, though I was fairly close to the front. The stage lighting, however, was not optimal to say the least, and consequently these images exhibit a fair degree of digital noise.)
These are the full set of pics for the 2019 Voltaire Lecture at Logan Hall, given by Dr Adam Rutherford: "The Return of Scientific Racism" — or as Dr Rutherford preferred to title it: "How to Argue with a Racist".
("Full set" should also be qualified. I was 45 minutes late for this lecture, so most of my pics are of the Q&A.)
