October Gallery, London, Tuesday, 29th November, 2011.

Human ingestion of psychedelic plants is thought to stretch from prehistory to the present; in more recent epochs such rituals have been shadowed by attempts at their suppression. This talk looks at the latest efforts to stamp out this praxis on these shores ... and what those of us committed to fighting for our cognitive liberty can do about it.

Charlotte Walsh is a legal academic whose research focus is on psychedelics and the law, viewed from a libertarian, human rights based perspective. She is a founder member of Drug Equality Alliance - an organisation that campaigns for equal rights and protection of all drug users - and is involved in advising individuals prosecuted for activities involving plant psychedelics.

This lecture is part of a series to be held at the October Gallery, London, on the last Tuesday of each month.
