Have a chance to 'put the world to rights' in SL London. There is now a 'Speakers' Corner' set aside for SL Groups where you can meet up to have your say or just come and listen to others discussing their hot topics. England is traditionally known as a country of 'freedom of speech' and there has been a 'Speakers' Corner' in London since the right of free assembly was recognised in 1872 in the Royal Parks and Gardens Act.
Although Sunday mornings is the recognised time for the real life gatherings, where people get up on their 'soapbox' and talk about their political views or any other subjects that they care to talk about, you can usually find the discussions going on throughout the week as well.
Legend has it that Karl Marx, Lenin, George Orwell and William Morris had all used this spot in real life London to express their beliefs. 'Speakers' Corner' is located on the corner of Park Lane and Cumberland Gate, opposite the Marble Arch tube station. By the way a 'soapbox' is a raised platform and originates from the time when speakers would stand on a wooden box meant for holding soap.
