    My first thought was “Is he the Aussie guy?” I’m definitely aware of him. I think the article is a bit breathless in describing his part as completely unknown and “uncovering the story”. Definitely worth reading/knowing more about and hats off to all three of them, frankly.

      I was aware of the protest, but knew very little of the details and consequences etc. so it was a very educational read for me.
