2018 Press Freedom Debate

On the 3rd of May we held the annual 2018 Press Freedom Debate!

This years moot was ‘‘the observers of politics are smarter than the politicians’’

Grant Walker is the chairman for the night, and was joined by the likes of Nicola Willis, Kris Faafoi, Peter Dunne, Kieran McAnulty, Jane Clifton and David Townsend. It certainly was a powerful clash of powerful minds and personalities.

Thank you so much to everyone who came! It was a fantastic night full of quips, anecdotes and wisdom!
We hope you all took away the message of how important and free and fair press is!
All money raised from ticket sales went to the Media Safety and Solidarity Fund, which provides support to journalists and media workers in the Asia-Pacific region.
