John Pilger

According to a statement by the organisers of Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, John Pilger, Australian journalist and documentary maker based in London, has confirmed his participation as featured guest in the main Festival program.

Pilger has twice won Britain’s Journalist of the Year Award and his devastating and internationally renowned documentaries have polarised media and public opinion for decades. In 2009, he was awarded the Sydney Peace Prize in recognition of his courage as a foreign and war correspondent in enabling the voices of the powerless to be heard.
