A book by Walkley Award-winning Lateline journalist Margot O'Neill
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 Philip 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.
"Blind Conscience tells the harrowing and inspiring stories of some of the key players in the refugee advocacy movement during the Howard government."
Margot O'Neill tells the story of ... how a diverse range of refugee advocates from Liberal dissidents like Petro Georgiou to top flight medical specialists and lawyers to full-time mothers and hard-left radicals created an unlikely new wave of political activism against the Howard government that transformed their lives, their friendships and sometimes even their patriotism.
