Hicham Yezza - 'Arbitrary Detention in the United Kingdom'

The Speak Easy is a regular forum organised by the Oxford University Liberal Democrats, Compass Oxford and the Oxford Libertarian Society, with discussion topics of interest to liberals of all kinds.

Hicham Yezza is a writer and activist. He has edited Ceasefire magazine since its founding in 2003 and is also a founding member of the Nottingham Peace Movement. In this talk, he discusses his experience starting in 2008 of several long periods of arbitrary detention under the Government's anti-terrorist and immigration powers, as well as the Home Office's attempt to deport him.
