John Pilger Title: Resisting the Empire by John Pilger: Lecture (en)
Description:

John Pilger is a brilliant journalist, writer and documentary filmmaker who has just published his new book, Freedom Next Time – Resisting the Empire, in which he chastises the corporate media for selling out to the piranha of global neo-liberalism and betraying their role of censuring the government. He calls for a Fifth Estate or civic force to denounce the decayed corporate media and use the internet and the new digital technology to hold the world leaders accountable and inform an overworked and fear filled public.

Speaker Bio:

John Pilger is a world-renowned journalist, author and documentary filmmaker, who began his career in 1958 in his homeland, Australia, before moving to London in the 1960s. As a wartime correspondent beginning in Viet Nam, he believes a journalist also ought to be a guardian of the public memory and often quotes Milan Kundera: “The struggle of people against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting.”

Noam Chomsky wrote: “John Pilger's work has been a beacon of light in often dark times. The realities he has brought to light have been a revelation, over and over again, and his courage and insight a constant inspiration.”
