Rally for War Crimes Whistleblower David McBride Supreme Court 6 & 7 May

May 6 @ 8:00 am - May 7 @ 4:00 pm AEST

Come along to this rally to support David McBride and express your outrage at his prosecution and sentencing.
Whistleblower McBride is so far the only person prosecuted in the wake of the Brereton Report on war crimes in Afghanistan. The fact he was not permitted to use a public interest defence highlights the egregious lack of protections for whistleblowers.
The government has wasted $2.4m on this unjust prosecution, money that could have been spent on hospitals or education.

Speakers start at 9:00am and include:

John Shipton – father of Julian Assange
Bernard Collaery – lawyer/former AG ACT
Emma Davidson MLA (Greens ACT)
Kieran Pender – Human Rights Law Centre
Rex Patrick – former senator/Whistleblowers Justice Fund
Troy Stolz – Clubs NSW whistleblower
Dr Sue Wareham (Medical Association for the Prevention of War)
Jeff Morris – CBA banking whistleblower
Professor Peter Greste – Alliance for Journalists’ Freedom
David Shoebridge – Greens Senator
Dr Sue Wareham – Medical Association for the Prevention of War
