Freedom of speech

“I don’t agree with a word you said, but I defend to the death your right to say it.” 

Just 10 days ago in Cairo I was applauded by Egyptians for alluding to this quote. The occasion was a session on Media in an EACPE/ERIS workshop . That quote has taken on a very special significance in the light of what has happened across the region since I uttered those words in the Egyptian capital!
