Watch: Full Video of WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange & Philosopher Slavoj Žižek with Amy Goodman


Democracy NOW! – TRANSCEND Media Service

In one of his first public events since being held under house arrest, WikiLeaks Editor-In-Chief Julian Assange appeared in London Saturday [2 Jul 2011] for a conversation with Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek, moderated by Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman. They discussed the impact of WikiLeaks on world politics, the release of the Iraq and Afghanistan war logs, and Cablegate — the largest trove of classified U.S. government records in history.

Assange was wearing an ankle monitor under his boot and Saturday’s event concluded shortly after 6 p.m. so he could return to his bail address by his curfew. The discussion was sponsored by the Frontline Club, founded in part to remember journalists killed on the front lines of war.

“From being inside the center of the storm, I have learned not just about the structure of government, not just about how power flows in many governments around the world that we’ve dealt with, but rather how history is shaped and distorted by the media.” — Julian Assange.
