Once labelled ‘the most dangerous man on the planet’ Professor Peter Singer will be the guest at a special breakfast in Byron Bay on August 6.

The breakfast, which is organised by Byron United, is being held in conjunction with the annual Byron Bay Writers Festival.

 Peter Singer came to the world’s attention in 1975 with the publication of his book ‘Animal Liberation’ considered the bible of the animal rights movement.

Since then, he’s been in the thick of many of the murkiest debates of our time.

The New Yorker describes Singer as ‘One of the most controversial philosophers alive’.

Singer’s views on euthanasia, abortion and the sanctity of human life have led him to being branded a ‘prophet of death’, a ‘baby killer’ and a ‘Nazi’.

Byron United executive officer Diana Ricketts said the business group was proud to present such an innovative thinker and speaker.

The breakfast will be held from 7am to 9am on August 6 at the Buddha Bar in Byron Bay.

RSVP by August 1 to Diana on or phone 66808853.

Cost is $30 (includes hot breakfast).

Bookings are essential.
