“The only way to keep a secret is to never have one.”
Champion for truth and transparency? Or dangerous terrorist? Martyr to political conspiracy? Or traitor? Courageous exile? Or “fugitive from justice”? Hero, or villain? Whatever he is, Julian Assange is certainly a divisive subject.
From the Embassy of Ecuador in London, Assange will be speaking with audiences in Melbourne and Sydney, and shared feeds into Auckland and Brisbane, in a rare opportunity for a real time interview and Q&A.
Never one to shy away from controversy, Assange has been riling up global governments since founding WikiLeaks in 2006, squirrelling out secret dossiers and classified information. Media coverage has portrayed him as everything from a sinister double agent for Russian interests, an out of touch zealot, to an embattled martyr for a free media. The conversation about media freedom and privacy is as crucial as ever, impacting personal freedoms and national security. Join the debate at ‘Julian Assange: No more secrets, no more lies’.
* Due to developments with the Ecuadorian Embassy in the U.K., there is a possibility the live link for ‘Julian Assange: No more secrets, no more lies’ will be conducted over the phone rather than video link.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The screening in BRISBANE (18/02/17) will link to a one hour conversation between Julian Assange and a local host in Sydney, followed by a 30 minute audience Q&A. Doors to the event will open at 5pm. The event will end at 7:30pm. There will be merchandise sold at the event, including t-shirts and posters.
