Hundreds hear Christine Assange at Green Left dinner

More than 300 people packed out the Leichhardt Town Hall on November 10 for the Green Left Weekly annual dinner in Sydney with guest speaker Christine Assange.

“I've come here tonight not just to support Julian but also to support Green Left Weekly," said Assange. “We need you guys to keep having the guts to tell the truth!”

In a wide-ranging question and answer session with Green Left Weekly co-editor Simon Butler, Assange recounted her political education that brought her to a realisation that the Australian government was a close collaborator with the “US terror state”.

The sold-out crowd was welcomed with a moving acknowledgement of country by veteran Aboriginal activist and socialist Ray Jackson accompanied by spine-tingling performance on the didgeridoo by Uncle Henry. After enjoying a Latin American feast, there was dancing to the Cuban-style band 'Mango Quartet'  comprising Justo Diaz, Isaac Zorzano, Miquel Guzman and Hugo Leal.

Thanks to the wonderful army of volunteers who did the hall set up, cooking, serving and the cleanup that went into the early hours of the next morning!

Messages of support for Julian Assange from some of the 300 people at Green Left Weekly's 'defend WikiLeaks' dinner in November 10. Special guest was passionate advocate Christine Assange, the mother of the WikiLeaks founder, who gives a warm message to her son.

Green Left TV will also soon be putting up Christine Assange's fascinating discussion on the night, which took up WikiLeaks, Ecuador, Australia and the US, her own journey, the media, and the importance of alternatives.
