Post 16 students attend talk by human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell

On the 27th September students in year 12 were invited along to an exclusive talk by leading human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell at the University of Northampton. The human rights activist, who hit the headlines in 2001 when he was beaten by bodyguards after attempting a citizen’s arrest of Zimbabwe’s President Mugabe, appeared as part of the National Hate Crime Awareness Week, with much of the focus on, in Peter’s words “the unfinished battle for LGBT human rights”.

Abbie Medland was one of a number of students who took the opportunity to attend the event and was really pleased she did: “The talk was insightful and made you question where you stood on a variety of ethical issues. I also got an insight into aspects of what I would love to do in the future, and it was an extremely thought proving talk”.
