- Arif Ahmed, Council of Ex-Muslims, Irtaza Hussain
Just a reminder that we will be having a meetup for apostate asylum seekers and refugees followed by evening drinks with philosopher Arif Ahmed tomorrow 19 September from 6:30-8:00pm at The George on the Strand, 213 Strand, London WC2R 1AP. Entry is £3; £1 for unwaged, which can be paid at the door. All are welcome.
My CEMB co-spokesperson Nahla Mahmoud will MC the event.
