17/05/2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$9.97 – $55.98
Special guest speakers Avi Yemini, Imam Tawhidi and Kirralie Smith,
& Professor James Allan as “the devil’s advocate“.
THREE incredible speakers debate important public issues and give their honest opinions on issues such as freedom of speech & religion, the success of immigration and multiculturalism in Australia.
The Q&A panel
Avi Yemini is a proud “Ozraeli” – a dual citizen of Australia and Israel. Born and raised in Australia, he joined the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) before returning home to teach self-defence and personal training IDF style. His willingness to say what he’s thinking about current issues without regard for political correctness quickly drew a large following on Facebook and he is now bursting onto the minor party political scene in Victoria.
Imam Tawhidi is one of Australia’s most controversial speakers. He is a Muslim scholar, thinker, educator, speaker, and one of the main leading voices in the global movement of Islamic reform, who has dedicated his life to ideologically tackling the spread of Islamic extremism. He has delivered speeches at Hussainiyas, Mosques, Islamic centres, Churches and Universities across the Middle East, Europe, America, Asia, Australia, USA and Canada.
Kirralie Smith is widely known as founder and director of Halal Choices Australia, and this year launched H.A.M. (the Halal Action Movement). Kirralie is a housewife, mother, small business owner and activist. She is an outspoken opponent of political correctness who seeks to ensure that the voice of mainstream, conservative Australia is heard.
