Charter 88 celebrates 20 years

Charter 88 (now part of Unlock Democracy) has released the book ‘Unlocking Democracy’ in commemoration of it’s 20th anniversary. Nick Clegg MP joined Ferdinand Mount and Helena Kennedy QC in speaking at it’s launch on Tuesday, and Guy Aitchison has blogged the evening on OurKingdom.

Both Nick Clegg and Guy strike a cautiously optimistic note, saying that while we have fewer liberties than we have in a long time, the current economic crisis could be a catalyst for change and an opportunity to re-define liberty – beginning with the Convention.
