At this IBN sponsored event, Professor Roy Foster from Oxford will speak on the Irish Exit from the British Empire, in particular the event of the Easter rising 1916. This is where the proclamation of independence declaring Ireland a republic was first read, significantly in the central post office in Dublin. It is told that inspired by the Irish principles of independence in fulfilling his mission in India, Gandhi carried a copy with him until his death, and the significance of this event is quite relevant to our lives today.
