The Australian-born Wikileaks editor Julian Assange will take part in a debate at the Sydeny Splendour in the Grass festival.
On Friday July 29, a discussion panel will be held, involving Assange’s mother Christine, his Australian lawyer Grace Morgan, his co-author Dr Suelette Dreyfus, leading internet security analyst Patrick Gray, and ABC TV’s presenters Marc Fennell and Nick Hayden.
Julian Assange’s part in the debate will take the form of a pre-recorded video message from his house arrest in Britain. According to the release, he will be discussing the WikiLeaks cables scandal, the story of his arrest, and what it all means for young Australians.
Young people from other countries are bound to be interested.
