#Australia Govt abandons journalist wrongfully arrested in #Egypt – @perthtones interview with @austingmackel

Austin Mackell spoke to me from Cairo via Skype on April 28 and the 2 part interview went to air during my fill-in shift on Perth’s top talkback station 6PR on the 28th. It was very well received by listeners who offered support during talkback after the interview and the following evening.

We ask that Prime Minister Gillard and Foreign Minister Bob Carr do their job and act now to secure the freedom of a respected australian journalist. Please call, email and tweet them

on twitter they are: @juliagillard @bobjcarr

( both tracks about 12 minutes each )


meanwhile, Austin keeps writing as he awaits his fate and the return of his passport. Click this link well worth your reading and sharing with anyone who cares about democracy and the future.
