By John Pilger

"... The public forum “Breaking Australia's silence: WikiLeaks and freedom” took place on March 16 at Sydney Town Hall. More than 2000 people attended. The event was staged by the Sydney Peace Foundation, Amnesty, the Sydney Stop the War Coalition, and supported by the City of Sydney ..."

Thanks, great speech by Pilger!

"(...) the real threat is not WikiLeaks or Julian Assange but you, the public."

"They hate it. They hate the democracy of knowledge (...)"

"And what is absolutely critical, and Julian has made this point so well, that the moment we leave the Sydney Town Hall that’s when all this begins. Because mustn’t throw away this incredible expression of several thousand people coming together to express their concern about what has happened to our country, what has happened to Julian Assange and what will happen to us unless we do something now."

Amen.
Cheers,
JJ
