On the show, Chris Hedges discusses the implications of the latest British High Court of England and Wales ruling and its implications for Julian Assange’s case with the documentary filmmaker and journalist, John Pilger.
In the crudest, most political judgement in memory, two High Court judges in London have ordered the extradition of Julian Assange to the United States, where a trial in a kangaroo court awaits him, followed by a life lost in a barbaric prison system.

Wikileaks founder and journalist Julian Assange could soon be extradited to the United States for alleged crimes he committed publishing classified information. The UK’s High Court rejected a January decision refusing extradition of Assange after the US filed a request to have him sent stateside.
Following the final High Court hearing to decide whether or not Julian Assange is to be extradited to the United States — for the ‘crime’ of revealing a landscape of government crimes and lies — John Pilger looks back on the decade Assange has been fighting for his freedom, and the implications for independent journalists and the very notion of justice.
