John Richardson

John Richardson was born, educated and lived most of his life in Sydney. He has worked for 35 years for Japanese, Korean and US multinationals, rising to Director level, with specific responsibilities for Human Resources and Supply Chain in Asia-Pacific.

Now in semi-retirement John continues to do some consulting work, but free of the restrictions of the corporate world. He became involved in the grass roots campaign to secure justice for David Hicks and Mamdouh Habib and an inveterate writer to the letters pages and to politicians.

From there John pursued a growing interest in human rights, US-Australian relations, US foreign policy and what he perceives to be some of the negative changes that have arisen in Australia over the past couple of decades, including the resurgence of racism, increasing government secrecy, the expansion of the powers of the executive arm of government, the loss of civil liberties, the lack of political accountability, the failure of the mainstream media and so on.
