During the recent UNESCO-backed World Press Freedom Day, I could not find a single mention of Julian Assange or WikiLeaks anywhere in the program.
When our peak international body hosts an event on freedom of the press I would expect those topics to be front row and centre. What an outright hypocrisy.
At his recent talk in Byron Bay, John Pilger stated that the failure of the Australian government to do anything at all to help Assange should be a source of national shame for us all. I hang my head.
