Come to Yorkshire CND’s talk to commemorate George Orwell’s birthday – why Big Brother is still relevant, particularly in light of the recent revelations about NSA surveillance.
Tuesday 25th June, 6pm
Leeds Metropolitan University, Woodhouse Building – Lecture Theatre 1, with:
Dr Steve Schofield, Author of “Lifting the Lid on Menwith Hill”
Prof Dave Webb, CND Chair
In the heart of the Yorkshire countryside lies Menwith Hill a US Spy Base and key part of a global network of NSA bases collecting, storing and analysing information from around the globe.
How is this US base democratically accountable to the British public?
What is Menwith Hill’s role in global warfare and drone attacks?
In whose interest does the base carry out surveillance?
