The Sydney Hilton Bombing


February 13, 2012 is the 34th anniversary of the
bombing of the Sydney Hilton Hotel in Australia, in which three persons were killed.  The bombing occurred during a Commonwealth regional heads of governments conference.  As a result of bad police work, Australian political activist Tim Anderson was wrongfully charged.  He was not finally freed from the perils of justice until the early 1990's.

The case created quite a stir as left wing groups in Australia and beyond mobilized to free Tim Anderson.
The campaign gave rise to two great protest songs by
Alistair Hulett (1951-2010)

I had the privilege of exchanging emails with Alistair Hulett about a year before he died. The Tim Anderson case makes us proud of the legal profession, when after long struggles, justice prevails.
