Join us for an evening of insightful conversation with award winning
journalist Peter Greste. Joined by Victoria Laurie, Greste will speak to
issues of media censorship, freedom of expression in times of war, human
rights, the role of writing, and how people can participate as private
citizens in safeguarding democracy.
Sydney born *Peter Greste* is an internationally recognised journalist
concerned with questions of politics, media freedom and war. He has worked
for Reuters, CNN and the BBC in Africa, the Middle East and Latin America.

release from an Egyptian prison where he was incarcerated in 2013 for
reporting that was 'damaging to national security'. In 2018, he commenced
