Event description

Description



Presented by Sydney Ideas, Sydney Democracy Network and the Post-Truth Initiative

Renowned journalist Glenn Greenwald discusses his favourite subjects: power and accountability, surveillance and privacy, Trump and fake news, threats to democracy, courage, and the role of journalism in giving a voice to perspectives and events that are ignored and silenced by large media outlets.

Well known as the journalist who worked with Edward Snowden in 2013 to reveal the secret surveillance programs undertaken by the United States and Britain, Glenn Greenwald will be in discussion with former WA Greens Senator Scott Ludlam, and University of Sydney academics Benedetta Brevini and John Keane.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Glenn Greenwald is one of three co-founding editors of The Intercept. He is a journalist, constitutional lawyer, and author of four New York Times best-selling books on politics and law. His most recent book, No Place to Hide, is about the US surveillance state and his experiences reporting on the Snowden documents around the world. Prior to co-founding The Intercept, Glenn’s column was featured at The Guardian and Salon. The NSA reporting he led for The Guardian was awarded the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for public service.
