Part 1 | Part 2
Wikileaks has had a transformative effect on global politics and our attitudes to government power and responsibility.

Speakers are (in order): Jennifer Robinson, Assange’s UK lawyer, from London by videolink; Julian Assange; Adam Bandt, Federal MP for Melbourne; Christopher Warren, Fed Sec, MEAA; Lizzie O’Shea, public interest solicitor; Peter Gordon, Principal of Gordon Legal. The event is chaired by Spencer Zifcak.

I don’t know what this video is about because I don’t know Arabic. I am guessing it has to do with Egypt or Tunisia. Somebody posted it to my Facebook wall. I’ve asked around on FB for a translation of what people have said but haven’t received a reply. I’ve used Google translate on the YouTube comments but that doesn’t tell me anything either. However the video has had more than 2000 views over the last hour or so, so I’m guessing it’s something interesting or important. Can anyone please enlighten us English speakers?
