The conversations about WikiLeaks and Assange are about so much more than the organisation and the individual behind it: they encompass freedom of speech (and the press), whistleblower protection, government transparency and raise fundamental questions about the underlying tenets of our democracy and civil rights. Presented in partnership with WACA (WikiLeaks Australian Citizen's Alliance).

WACA is holding a public meeting in Melbourne for those who wish to be involved in our campaign for 2013. This year will be huge as we defend Wikileaks and aim to see Julian Assange Free. 2013 is also an election year and there will be plenty to do with the launch of the Wikileaks Party and Julian Assange running for Senate. Come along and find out how you can help. 6pm. Trades Hall, 54 Victoria St, Carlton South (meet in foyer).

This is the baseload concentrated solar power technology modelled by the Zero Carbon Australia 2020 Stationary Energy Plan to supply 60% of Australia's stationary energy requirements.
