Breaking Australia's silence: WikiLeaks and freedom

'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.

Chaired by Mary Kostakidis, it featured speeches by John Pilger, Andrew Wilkie MP (the only serving Western intelligence officer to expose the truth about the Iraq invasion) and Julian Burnside QC, defender of universal human rights under the law.

"....Sweden has not been a neutral country for 30 years....The Swedish Prime Minister is a warmongering mate of George W Bush and has hired Bush's crony, Karl Rove to advise him on the problem of Julian Assange...."
