Breaking The Silence: By John Pilger ...
For we two to even attempt to compete with one of the world's bravest (and best), foreign correspondents and film makers, the international media hero, Australian born John Pilger -- would be silly. Since we'd lose the competition hands down.
Why? Because the man's a world beater;that's why.
He's the man who first broke the infamous story of 'The Killing Fields' to the horrified world at large.
Okay? 'Nuff said? An adequate/acceptable testimonial?
Now, our only other words to readers are those we'll use to thank all who helped the following footage finally find it's way onto This Old Brit's blog today. Leastwise, we thank all those involved who we are aware of. If we've missed anyone out, we apologize in advance and welcome any reminders.
1./ John Pilger, multi-award winning, freelance journalist and serial truth-teller-supreme.
2./ Our very own, valued regular reader/commenter/reseacher, Griffon, for his heads-up.
3./ Information Clearing House who, as usual, carry just about everything the msm won't.
4./ ITV-1, (Independent Television), the #2 British mainstream television channel.
5./ Google Videos, from where we obtained the version used below.
And last but by no means least -- your good selves. Who, incidentally, have very recently taken This Old Brit's blog's visitor total to over one hundred thousand -- yep, really -- that's over 100,000. Thank you all so very much. If it hadn't been for your interest, support, encouragement, input and continuing loyalty we'd probably have packed it all in -- a long, long time ago. Really.
Today, we trust (nay, earnestly request), that once you've watched this fantastic film for yourself, you'll spread it far & wide in order that as many other people as possible may become equally enlightened -- be it simply enlightened somewhat further or, 'blindingly' enlightened for the first time.
So, ladies & gentlemen, today we are truly proud to present:
BREAKING THE SILENCE
A FILM - by JOHN PILGER.
Please, please pass this on. Thank you.
