Michael speaking in Brisbane this Friday

Thanks to Sharon for the info: Michael will be speaking at the Amnesty International Australia Human Rights Conference in Brisbane, which runs from October 6-8. He will be part of a workshop on Friday morning. Here are the write-ups from their site:

MICHAEL WARE
Former correspondent for Time Magazine and CNN

Few people in the world understand the battlefields of the war on terror with greater intimacy than Michael Ware. As correspondent for TIME Magazine and CNN, Brisbane-born Ware spent years in Afghanistan and Iraq. His insights into the Iraqi perspective of the war, based on innumerable high-risk encounters with the insurgent foot-soldiers themselves, were closely followed by the more enlightened members of the US military officer corps. They directly influenced the shift to a population-based counter-insurgency approach from late 2006-on. Michael featured in an acclaimed episode of “Australian Story”. He is currently working on a feature length documentary entitled “Walking with Ghosts”.

And from the agenda:

11.00–12.00
Hugh Riminton
Channel TEN’s National political editor

Michael Ware
Former correspondent for Time Magazine and CNN
