c0lo (1497653) writes "Australian Wikileaks founder Julian Assange stands alongside the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela: Assange has been chosen by the Sydney Peace Foundation to receive a rare gold medal for peace with justice ***.
In related news: this Friday, in Federation Square, Melbourne, Assange joins (over the net) a discussion on wikileaks and freedom of speech. The discussion is campaigned by the GetUp Australia foundation, an independent, grass-roots community advocacy organisation with over 400000 members.

*** peace with justice relates to a way of thinking and acting which promotes non-violent solutions to every day problems and contributes to the development of civil societies."
