Q Society supports and invites scholars of Islam, authors, politicians and civil rights campaigners to speak. Our meetings provide Australians with a non-partisan view of Islam and bring together those who share our concern about the growing impact of Islam on our government, businesses and communities.
In February 2017 we hold two critical events in defence of freedom of speech. The events in Sydney (9 Feb) and Melbourne (10 Feb) bring together brave freedom fighters and raise money for the legal defence fund.
During 2015, as well as the first seven months of 2016, our focus was firmly on launching a new political party: Australian Liberty Alliance. Geert Wilders visited once more as keynote speaker at the launch event in Perth on 20 October. At the same time the frivolous legal action brought against Q Society and key members by halal certifier Mohamed El-Mouehly demanded all available resources to be directed towards the legal defence. This did not leave any financial room for more useful events.
Simon Deng was touring Australia in November 2014 and spoke in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Sydney. Simon is a vocal human rights activists originally from the south of the Sudan, who now lives in New York City. He spoke on 'Slavery and Persecution under Islam. As a former child slave himself, this is a topic close to his heart.
Clare Lopez has visited Australia following an invitation by Q Society in Aug/Sep 2014. She spoke on "Jihad Resurgent: Islamic Challenge, Western Response" together with Bernard Gaynor, Dr Mark Durie and Michael Smith. See the archived event page for details.
In March 2014 we held the First International Symposium on Liberty and Islam in Australia. The first event of this kind in the southern hemisphere featured workshops, presentations and social events with scholars, authors and activists from Europe, the Middle East, the USA and Australia.
Regional meetings are held with our registered supporters. We plan activities, socialise and network amongst supporters and friends. As a secular civil rights organisation, we value community spirit and good relationships with Australians from all walks of life.
