Hal Wootten: Why I Signed Up To The Open Letter In Defence Of Gillian Triggs

OPINION: Emeritus Professor Hal Wootten, New Matilda, 26 February 2015.

Ten to 30 years ago, I frequently took part in public debates, but the years have gone by and I now rarely participate. Yet disgust at the level to which our national politics has fallen lures me out in defence of the Human Rights Commission.

I knew Gillian Triggs slightly in academic legal circles; I didn't get excited when she was appointed chair of the Human Rights Commission. However I soon realised that there was something I had missed beneath the conservative demeanor.
