Truth to Power (formerly Family Smatters)

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 11 August 2019
Author / Presenters: Annika Smethurst Steve Kendall

Annika Smethurst’s Canberra home was raided by the Australian Federal Police in June this year, after she reported on a top secret government proposal to give Australia's cyber spies unprecedented powers. News Corp called the raid a “dangerous act of intimidation”. Annika talks with Steve Kendall about what happened, why it happened, and what this means for the future of journalism.

(Please note: this session replaces Annika in conversation with James Jeffrey, who had to cancel his Bendigo visit.)
