The RSA is proud to announce that Sean Faircloth, author of "Attack of the Theocrats: How the Religious Rights is harming us all, and what we can do about it!" will be coming to Australia in March 2013. He will be appearing in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and also in New Zealand.
In Perth, the WA Humanists will be hosting Sean, and in New Zealand he will be the guest of the New Zealand Association of Rationalists and Humanists.
The RSA is delighted to work with sibling organisations in arranging this important and timely tour. Other free-thought groups supporting the tour include the Council of Australian Humanist Societies, the Progressive Atheists, the Victorian Skeptics, the Humanist Society of Victoria and the University of Melbourne Secular Society.
Sean's tour will focus on why and how Australian freethinkers should be pushing back actively against religious fundamentalists' inroads into government, and defending our proud secular heritage.
The tour will also help launch the Rationalist Society's 10 Point Plan to Reclaim a Secular Australia, developed by a coalition of freethought groups: see here.
Tickets are now on sale, with early bird prices ($25 for the general public, and $12 for students and healthcard holders) throughout February.
And then, in a coup for regional Australia, Sean will be travelling to Central Victoria and speaking at the Kyneton Mechanics Institute on Wednesday 27 March.
Tickets are on sale here, with discounts available for members of the Central Victorian Atheists and Freethinkers and the RSA.
Back in Melbourne, Sean will be appearing at a Wheeler Centre Lunchbox / Soapbox at 12.45pm on Thursday 28 March (176 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne). Sean will then be available to sign copies of his book "Attack of the Theocrats", sponsored by the wonderful Embiggen Books.Check here for more details of this event at the Wheeler Centre.
