This badge was produced by Resistance, an Australian socialist youth organisation, in support of internet-based whistle-blower organisation WikiLeaks.
The donor of this badge, John Ellis, writes:
I wore this badge to a rally to support Julian Assange and WikiLeaks
that was held in Melbourne. Wearing this badge sums up many of my
political attitudes towards the media in Western societies and in
Australia … [I w]as an employee of the Herald and Weekly Times and an
activist for 39 years …
WikiLeaks has allowed
for unknown truths to come out about many things and has highlighted
the fact that the conservative media has not always investigated
issues to the full. I support WikiLeaks because it is an important
component of a free, independent and democratic media which is
essential for a healthy society.
