Julian Assange was recently awarded the Sydney Peace Foundation (SPF)’s peace medal, presented to him in London. The event was organised at the Frontline Club. Assange’s acceptance address follows introductions by the SPF’s Stuart Rees and Mary Kostikidis.
A write up of a Q&A section with Assange, which followed the speeches, can be found here (part I) and here (part II).

I fully support Wikileaks and Julian Assange. It is about time he received some recognition for his outstanding efforts to making the world a better place.
I have Twitted, Posted on FB and sent this article to all my friends.
Am writing a thesis on Public Trust in WikiLeaks, the Media and the Government and need to know what your opinions are. The online survey is multiple choice and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please follow the link: http://www.kwiksurveys.com/?s=ILLLML_9669e09d. Would be great if you would encourage others to do the survey also.
I am so pleased that Julian Assange has been awarded the Sydney Peace Foundation’s peace medal, if there is anyone that deserves it, it is him. He is a person of courage and extraordinary bravery and should be proud to be up there with the likes of the Dalai Lama.
