On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to legendary journalist and filmmaker John Pilger.

He discusses the Coronavirus pandemic and it’s damage to the U.K., the scandal of some of the most vulnerable patients being thrown out of hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in the tens of thousands of excess deaths, ongoing privatisation of the NHS and the the continuous deterioration of the NHS before the pandemic, Matt Hancock’s performance as Health Secretary, the ongoing persecution of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, new charges against him, the efforts to extradite him to the US and the silence of mainstream journalists on his persecution.

Finally, John Pilger discusses the rising tensions between the US and its allies and China, ongoing Cold War dynamics with Xi Jinping’s China and Vladimir Putin’s Russia, the hypocrisy of Western foreign policy against China, the Hong Kong National Security Law, the US military encirclement of China and how China is entering a ‘state of siege’, rising tension with Australia and more!
