What is Freedom ?

freedom_camusWhat is Freedom? 
This year, that of the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta and the Charter of the Forest, and an uncertain general election, is an opportunity to rediscover the freedom, personal sovereignty and just governance, as understood by these great Charters’ founders.
And to join forces for the real alternative: a new, inclusive settlement and civic reality.
What is freedom? What power do we really have? Are modern people free today? Are you free to come to either of these two meetings ?
