CNLive! S2E25 Roger Waters & John Pilger: FREEDOM DENIED

Consortium News on Jan 6, 2021

John Pilger and Roger Waters discuss the outcome of today’s bail hearing, in the wake of a ruling by UK judge, Vanessa Baraitser, not to extradite Julian Assange to the US and to discharge him. The prosecution announced that an appeal against the decision had been lodged, in response to which Judge Baraitser suggested he be kept in custody, pending that appeal. Mr Fitzgerald for the defense immediately raised the issue of bail, given the high risk to Mr Assange’s health if he remains in Belmarsh. The judge today denied bail.

One thought on “Kevin Gosztola: Judge Denies Bail for Julian Assange + Kristinn Hrafnsson: Sending Assange Back to Belmarsh is Inhumane

  1. People in positions of authority and academia rarely, if ever, admit fault.
    They come from all walks of Life: Judges, lawyers, politicians, doctors, scientists, military brass, CEOs, even sports captains, teachers and community leaders.
    Once in a position of authority most of them seem to undergo a humility and empathy lobotomy.
    They are beholden to only one thing: their egos.
    Or is it their Id?
