This 25 May 2019 video says about itself:
Web-only discussion with Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg and Jeremy Scahill of The Intercept. They discuss the Justice Department’s decision to indict WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on 17 charges of violating the Espionage Act for publishing U.S. military and diplomatic documents exposing U.S. war crimes.
This comes as President Trump is considering Memorial Day pardons for American military members accused or convicted of war crimes, including former Blackwater contractor Nicholas Slatten, who was twice found guilty of first-degree murder in the deadly 2007 Nisoor Square massacre in Baghdad which killed 14 unarmed Iraqi civilians. He was sentenced to life in prison last December.
As Assange faces 170-year sentence, Trump proposes pardoning US war criminals: here.
Amid grave concerns for his health, Assange transferred to Belmarsh Prison medical wing: here.
Istanbul public meeting calls for the defence of Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning: here.
United Nations Special Rapporteur: Julian Assange is being tortured: here.
The British and Australian governments have blithely dismissed a May 31 report by United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer, which established that WikiLeaks founder and publisher Julian Assange has been the victim of a protracted campaign of “psychological torture.” The brazen responses demonstrate the criminality of the US-led vendetta against Assange, which is proceeding in violation of due process and the fundamental tenets of international law: here.
In legal victory for Assange, Swedish court rules against extradition: here.
In a June 1 interview with ABC Radio Adelaide, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer warned that Julian Assange could die in prison if his persecution is not stopped immediately. Last week, Melzer issued a scathing denunciation of Assange’s persecution, calling it “psychological torture”: here.
The Washington Post reported today that officials from the US Justice Department issued a formal request to British authorities last Thursday for the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The document has not been made public: here.
British Home Secretary Sajid Javid boasted on Thursday that he certified a US extradition request for Julian Assange on Wednesday, just a day after the Trump administration formally asked the British government to extradite the WikiLeaks founder and journalist. In a radio interview, Javid paid lip service to the need for the British courts to first approve the extradition, while still making plain the British establishment’s determination to hand Assange over to his persecutors in Washington: here.
American injustice: Trump and cronies protect a murderous US Navy SEAL: here.
