A provocative, witty and insightful evening discussing the current realities of post-truth, Brexit, Trump, the Royal Family, stolen history and more!

Experience a provocative, insightful and witty evening with international human rights judge and barrister Geoffrey Robertson QC, as he analyses Brexit and Trump in a post-truth era and calls for Australia’s constitutional regeneration after the bushfires. He will explain what is really happening to the royal family and to Julian Assange, how fake news distorts democracy and why the rich will inherit the earth. 

Geoffrey Robertson’s career has been marked by courage, determination and fierce independence. The defence lawyer has defended Salman Rushdie, Mike Tyson, Julian Assange, secured Yulia Tymoshenko’s release from prison in Ukraine, exposed the Medellin Cartel’s gun-running in the Caribbean and helped restore democracy in Fiji.

This show will give you an insight into Geoffrey Robertson’s life and famous cases, and his current crusade to restore cultural property to the people – including Indigenous Australians – from whom it has been stolen.

Don’t miss one of the world’s great minds as he challenges fellow Australians and to explain what is happening in and to the world.
