Livestream of WikiLeaks-Assange-Democracy forum

Posted on February 16, 2012


Thanks to @JLLLOW , the Feb. 17 forum “Don’t Shoot the Messenger: WikiLeaks, Assange, and Democracy,” will stream live online and commercial-free here.

Julian Assange’s principal attorney, Jennifer Robinson, is scheduled to appear with Julian’s mother, Christine Assange; Australian Greens Senator Scott Ludlam; and historian Humphrey McQueen at tomorrow’s panel discussion in Sydney:

WikiLeaks, a free press publishing and media organisation, has revealed human rights abuses, war crimes and corruption in governments across the world. Yet the US Administration wants to close WikiLeaks down and prosecute its founder Julian Assange. International financial services organisations have blocked payments to WikiLeaks, denying them vital income. The Australian government has failed to take a stand against the political persecution of Assange. Australian Prime Minister Gillard’s assertion that WikiLeaks’ activities were illegal was proved to be false by an Australian Federal Police investigation.

What does this say about our democracy?

Chaired by:
Mary Kostakidis, journalist and Australia’s first primetime anchorwoman

FRIDAY 17TH FEBRUARY, 2012, 6.30 pm to 8.15 pm
