Join us for a lively and entertaining debate as we ask the question “Is the Pen Mightier than the Sword?” in this Amnesty International star-studded event at the State Library.

Joe Hildebrand – News Limited journalist and host of the recent television series Dumb, Drunk and Racist – will steer the discussion as the panellists debate: which is the more powerful tool for change – the Pen or the Sword?

Joining the Pens and Swords teams is a line up of media personalities, journalists, entertainers and authors, including:
- SBS journalist and news-reader, Anton Enus
- Founder of the Exodus Foundation and 2GB host, Rev. Bill Crews
- Restaurant owner and former refugee, Nahji Chu (aka Miss Chu)
- Author, Academic and Committee member of International PEN, Dr Denise Leith
- Journalist and news anchor for Channel Ten regular on Ten’s The Project, Natasha Exelby

The debate winner will be decided by the UNSW and USYD Debates team Captains.
