BBC Radio 4: The Philosopher's Arms

Exciting news: I'm a panellist for BBC Radio 4's programme The Philosopher's Arms Series 2 Episode 4, which was recorded last week here in Edinburgh, debating whether or not we have a moral obligation to obey the law, from the perspective of a Greenpeace activist.

It's broadcast at 3pm on Tuesday 28 August 2012, and you can listen again online here. My bit starts at 17:53, but I recommend listening to the whole thing as it's a great programme!

 We had an extremely successful stall outside the Edinburgh University Graduate Careers Fair and a whole range of different peace groups joined in. Some students went inside and relieved BAE Systems of their propaganda materials, using BAE post-it notes to write 'Ban BAE' on the pavement by the entrance. We'll be back in the autumn for the next careers fair if arms companies are invited back again!
