Former Australian news presenter Mary Kostakidis and Sister Susan Connelly speak about the courage of imprisoned WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange and prosecuted Australian lawyer Bernard Collaery.
Human rights activist and author Sister Susan Connelly speaks of the courage of Australian barrister, lawyer and former Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Attorney General Bernard Collaery, who was charged along with his client, the unnamed senior intelligence officer and whistleblower known as Witness K, for disclosing national security information to the public to reveal Australia’s spying and corruption on Timor Leste (Timor East).
Connelly instructs on what “turning the other cheek” really means and how to do it well, as Collaery has done, to humiliate the oppressor.
