  • "Pilger is the closest we have to the great correspondents of the 1930s... The truth in his hands is a weapon, to be picked up and brandished and used in the struggle against evil and injustice"

    Guardian
  • "John Pilger is the antidote to easy, comfortable thinking, to smugness, to ignorance"

    Daily Telegraph

    Salman Rushdie
  • "John Pilger unearths, with steely attention to facts, the filthy truth and tells it as it is. I salute him"

    Harold Pinter
