20.11.2019 News

Interviews with Baltasar Garzón following the showing of Hacking Justice (Clara López Rubio and Juan Pancorbo).

This Wednesday November 20, the Millenium Festival and BOZAR joined forces for a one of a kind event: the showing of the documentary Hacking Justice, which was then followed by a debate "How can we support investigative journalists and whistle blowers ?". We had some prestigious guests for this debate : Baltasar Garzón, Assange’s lawyer; Clara López Rubio, the producer; Marie Arena, chair of the European Parliament's Subcommittee on Human Rights; and Stefania Maurizi, investigative journalist for the Italian daily La Repubblica.

With 500 participants, the event demonstrated impressive civic engagement for the freedom of speech and the right to information, both fundamental values of democracy. It was a movement to protect the work of journalists, artists, and whistle blowers; a mobilization for a cause that affects all of us.

We would like to thank all the medias that took action to talk about Assange’s case as well as the speakers; Marc Molitor et Vincent Engel, the debate moderator; the interpreters, Alejandra Uribe Restrepo, Elena Arroyo Torres and Yves Maenaut; and all the participants.

The debate will be uploaded very soon.
