Description

WORLDbytes volunteers gained an exclusive peek at the British Librarys Taking Liberties exhibition, including an interview with curator Matthew Shaw for this special report. The exhibition offers an inspiring array of original documents charting Britains 1,000-year struggle for our freedoms and rights. The Magna Carta, Habeas Corpus, the Death Warrant of King Charles I, Republican Flags, suffragette Emily Davidsons purse, literature from the OZ trial and more, all feature in this evocative exhibition but are rights handed down the same as rights fought for?
