Breaking Australia's Silence: WikiLeaks and Freedom
by John Pilger
'Breaking Australia's silence: WikiLeaks and freedom' was a public forum held on 16 March 2011 at the Sydney Town Hall. The event was staged by the Sydney Peace Foundation, Amnesty, Stop the War Coalition, and supported by the City of Sydney.
More than 2500 people filled and overflowed Sydney Town Hall to hear journalist and film-maker John Pilger, Andrew Wilkie, independent member of the Australian Parliament and the only serving Western intelligence officer to whistle-blow on the invasion of Iraq, and renowned human rights lawyer Julian Burnside QC.
The chair was broadcaster Mary Kostakidis.
