John Pilger

John Pilger

John Pilger is a renowned investigative journalist and documentary film-maker. He is one of only two to have twice won British journalism’s top award; his documentaries have won academy awards in both the UK and the US.

Pilger is an Australian journalist based in London. Since his early years as a war correspondent in Vietnam, he has been a strong critic of American, Australian and British foreign policy, which he considers to be driven by an imperialist agenda.

In a New Statesman survey of the 50 heroes of our time, he came fourth behind Aung San Suu Kyi and Nelson Mandela.

“John Pilger,” wrote Harold Pinter, “unearths, with steely attention facts, the filthy truth. I salute him.”
