The sound of Free Speech Debate

Members of our multilingual team produce a Mexican wave of sound, reciting two principles in their native tongues.

The Free Speech Debate team gathered around a microphone to attempt this “free speech Mexican wave” at our mid-year meeting. Starting with Urdu and finishing with Persian, we recited principles two and three in an overlapping round. Try to guess the other languages as you listen along.

Although we’re pretty impressed with our audio debut, we remain committed to reaching as many of you online as possible. Our international team of Oxford graduate students has translated the site into the 13 most commonly used languages on the internet. Free Speech Debate followers have also translated the 10 principles into Estonian and Polish.  If you would like to translate the 10 principles into your language, please let us know.
