    Civil Liberties or anti-terror laws?


    by WORLDwrite

    The Institute of Ideas and Pfizer Debating Matters Competition gets thousands of school students involved in debating key issues of the day. Privileging content over presentational style, school students get stuck in and never fail to impress. Having expanded the Debating Matters competition to India for the 2008-2009 competition, sixth form student winners from S.M Choksey High School in Pune, India visited the UK to debate the motion “Protecting the public from terrorism should come before civil liberties.” WORLDbytes volunteers were privileged to film the fiery debate that ensued and have edited their footage to share the inspiring highlights. The judges took the students to task and ruled the Indian students the winners on the day.
