Watch the video of an amazing debate on the Charlie Hebdo cartoons, that ended with a shocking result. The debate was held on 12th February 2015, at the University of Manchester, hosted by the Manchester Debating Union, is now up online to watch.
The debate was shocking, not just due to the highly impassioned arguments on both sides, but on the dramatic voting changes from before and after the debate – where the mostly (90% +/-) non-Muslim audience took a dramatic swing from one position to another by the end of the debate!
The topic of the debate was whether the house regretted the republishing of the Charlie Hebdo front cover in the media, after the paris attacks. Watch the video to experience the arguments, the humour, the rhetoric, and the final decision by the audience regarding what was a highly charged topic.
