Blind Conscience by Margot O'Neill
Book DescriptionWinner of the 2009 Australian Human Rights Commission Literature Non-Fiction Award On the 'long list' for the inaugural John Button Prize for Australian politics and social policy This profoundly moving book reveals the untold story of the people who struggled to get asylum seekers out of detention and change government policy. Lateline journalist Margot O'Neill, who covered many of these stories while they were happening, paints a compelling and heartbreaking picture through an extraordinary cast of characters. Some, like Petro Georgiou, Julian Burnside and Phillip Ruddock, are very well-known. Others are not famous but simply felt compelled to follow their consciences and act to help desperate people in desperate situations, often to the detriment of their personal well-being.
