    WikiLeaks wins Australian journalism award

    WikiLeaks has been recognised in Australia for its “outstanding contribution to journalism”, with founder Julian Assange lashing out at “cowardly” Prime Minister Julia Gillard in an acceptance speech.

    The anti-secrecy website was lauded at the annual Walkley Awards, where winners are chosen by an independent panel of journalists and photographers, for its courageous reporting of secret US cables.

    “WikiLeaks applied new technology to penetrate the inner workings of government to reveal an avalanche of inconvenient truths in a global publishing coup,” the Walkley trustees said in bestowing the award Sunday evening.

    “Its revelations, from the way the war on terror was being waged, to diplomatic bastardry, high-level horse-trading and the interference in the domestic affairs of nations, have had an undeniable impact.”

    What's the Liberal party's stance on Juilian Assange?
    They couldn't disagree with his description of Gillard as cowardly.

    Julia Gillard and John Key are tools of the Washington establishment, not surprised that Australasia has become the colonial possession of another great power. Not forgetting that NZ and Aus are part of the US surveillance network.
