John Pilger and Julian Assange are brave men indeed. As investigative journalists, they strive tirelessly and courageously to uncover the truth. I read my first Pilger book, Hidden Agendas, in the late 90’s and it subsequently changed my world perception forever. So much of what we see and hear is censored or veiled in a deliberate authoritarian program of misinformation. The result for us is a society trapped in a cycle of manufactured ignorance, which votes and discusses politics and social issues accordingly.

I found Assange’s quiet dignity and fearlessness compelling throughout this video. No wonder governments and corporations the world over want this man silenced.

It’s not a short interview – but definitely worth every minute.
