Published on Apr 17, 2019
On this season finale episode of Going Underground, we speak to Pink Floyd's Roger Waters on the arrest of Julian Assange. He calls on the UK to rise up to oppose Assange's extradition, labels the UK a satellite state of US empire for arresting Assange and attacks the government of Lenin Moreno for revoking his asylum. He also discusses ongoing US-led regime change efforts in Venezuela. Next we speak to the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer who was due to visit Julian Assange to assess his condition at the Ecuadorian Embassy, he discusses the risk of Assange not receiving a fair trial, the possibility of Assange facing the death penalty and what his potential long-term imprisonment means for freedom worldwide!
