WHEN: 4 pm
WHERE: The Troxy, 490 Commercial Road, Shadwell, London, United Kingdom
DESCRIPTION: Amy Goodman will moderate a conversation with WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange and renowned Slovenian philosopher, Slavoj Žižek.
Last year, whistleblower website WikiLeaks released three of the biggest ever leaks of classified information in history: the Iraq War Logs, the Afghanistan War Logs and Cablegate. Since then, ambassadors have resigned amid scandals exposed by leaked cables; the UK government has ordered a review of computer security; and, a wave of protest has swept across the Middle East and North Africa — in part fueled, some believe, by WikiLeaks revelations.
Discussing the impact of WikiLeaks on the world and what it means for the future, as well as the ethics and philosophy behind their work, the talk will provide a rare opportunity to hear two of the world’s most prominent thinkers discuss some of the most pressing issues of our time. This event is presented by the Frontline Club.
