News Item
Lee Rhiannon 14 Oct 2011

Lee Rhiannon will be speaking at the following event on 27 October.

Shelves are groaning with reports by human rights monitors, amassing evidence of atrocities in Sri Lanka's civil war. Audiences in Australia - and many other countries - have seen the documentary, made by the UK's Channel Four TV, with its compelling visual material. And yet governments - and international bodies such as the UN and the Commonwealth - hold back from decisive action. What can Australia do? What can journalists do? What can you do?

Speakers:

  • Senator Lee Rhiannon
  • Professor Wendy Bacon, Australian Centre for Independent Journalism (ACIJ)
  • Associate Professor Jake Lynch, Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPACS)
  • Chair: Brami Jegan, Sri Lanka Human Rights Project, CPACS

Where: New Law Seminar Room 030, University of Sydney
When: Thursday 27 October, 6pm-7:30pm
