PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
12 MARCH 2013

NOAM CHOMSKY, ONE OF THE MOST CRITICALLY ENGAGED PUBLIC INTELLECTUALS ALIVE TODAY TO SPEAK IN DUBLIN

Solidarity and the Responsibility to Protect

A Public Lecture by Professor Noam Chomsky
7.30pm Wednesday 03 April 2013
The Concert Hall - The RDS,
Dublin 4

Tickets from: http://noamchomsky2013.eventbrite.ie

As an organisation dedicated exclusively to the security and protection of human
rights defenders at risk, Front Line Defenders also sees it as part of its mandate
to provide a space in which independent critical voices can be heard. To this end we
are delighted to host Professor Chomsky for the inaugural Front Line Defenders
Annual Lecture to be held in partnership with the University College Dublin School
of Philosophy and the Policy Institute at Trinity College Dublin? said Front Line
Defenders Executive Director, Mary Lawlor.

Professor Chomsky is a US political theorist and activist, and Institute Professor
of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He has been
described as the "father of modern linguistics" and his work has also had
a profound impact on computer science, mathematics and psychology. He continues to
be widely recognised as one of the most critically engaged public intellectuals
alive today.

Professor Chomsky continues to be an unapologetic critic of both American foreign
policy and its ambitions for geopolitical hegemony and the neo-liberal turn of
global capitalism. Chomsky is also an incisive critic of the ideological role of the
mainstream corporate mass media, which, he maintains, "manufactures
consent" toward the desirability of capitalism and the political powers
supportive of it.

Registration will commence at 7pm. Lecture will commence at 7.30pm (sharp)

Admission: €15 Waged / €5 Unwaged Tickets Available At:
