The award-winning investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker John Pilger
is one of many high-profile public supporters of Julian Assange and his organization WikiLeaks.
Pilger has attended Assange’s court proceedings in London and has offered to contribute funds for his more than $300,000 bail.
Pilger’s latest film,
The War You Don’t See,
includes interviews with Assange.
Pilger says that WikiLeaks is revolutionizing journalism and galvanizing public opinion to stand up to global elites.
