About the Book

Dispatches from an age of impunity by the ABCTV award-winning investigative reporter and former foreign correspondent

For more than 15 years, award-winning journalist Sophie McNeill has reported on some of the most war-ravaged and oppressive places on earth, including Syria, Gaza, Yemen, West Bank, Iraq and China. In We Can't Say We Didn't Know, Sophie tells the human stories of devastation and hope behind the headlines - of children, families and refugees, of Saudi women seeking asylum, struggling doctors, imprisoned Uyghurs and Hong Kong protesters. These innocent civilians bear the brunt of the lawlessness of the current age of impunity, where war crimes go unpunished and human rights are abused. Many risk everything they know to stand up for what they believe in and to be on the right side of history, no matter how daunting or impossible it might appear, and their courage is extraordinary and inspiring. Sophie also examines what happens when evidence and facts become subjective and debatable, and how and why disinformation, impunity and hypocrisy now reign supreme. We can't say we didn't know - the question now is, what are you going to do about it?
