Speakers' Corner - Home of Free Speech - 17 Jun 2015
At Speakers' Corner in the northeast corner of Hyde Park in London, near the bustle of Oxford Street, anyone has the right to turn up every Sunday and talk about whatever is dear to their heart. Some call it the home of free speech: previous orators included famous figures Vladimir Lenin, Karl Marx and George Orwell. Today the atmosphere is hectic and unpredictable, with people from all backgrounds perching on boxes or stepladders to declaim on subjects from philosophy to religion, monsters or potatoes. Hecklers interrupt, adding to the chaotic feel of a place that draws visitors from far and wide.

A year later, the ash cloud, the Icelandic ash cloud arrived." REUTERS/Stefan Wermuth
