Assange in Court

Assange in Court

I was deeply shaken while witnessing yesterday’s events in Westminster Magistrates Court. Every decision was railroaded through over the scarcely heard arguments and objections of Assange’s legal team, by a magistrate who barely pretended to be listening. Before I get on to the blatant lack of fair process, the first… »

Assange Must Not Also Die in Jail

Assange Must Not Also Die in Jail

The highly dubious death of Jeffrey Epstein in a US maximum security prison is another strong reason not to extradite Julian Assange into one – particularly as many of the same people who are relieved by Epstein’s death would like to see Assange dead too. But there is every reason… »

Julian Assange: The Missing Step

Julian Assange: The Missing Step

In Sweden, prosecutors have applied to the Swedish courts to issue a warrant for Julian’s arrest. There is a tremendous back story to that simple statement. The European Arrest Warrant must be issued from one country to another by a judicial authority. The original Swedish request for Assange’s extradition… »

Venezuela and Binary Choice

Venezuela and Binary Choice

When a CIA-backed military coup is attempted by a long term CIA puppet, roared on by John Bolton and backed with the offer of Blackwater mercenaries, in the country with the world’s largest oil reserves, I have no difficulty whatsoever in knowing which side… »

The official Skripal story is a dead duck

The official Skripal story is a dead duck

One of the striking things about the official Skripal story is the way its more wildly improbable aspects have been released to the mainstream media over a long period, so as to manage their impact. So, for example, police acknowledgement that the perfume bottle Charlie Rowley found was sealed and… »

Chelsea and Julian are in jail. History trembles.

Chelsea and Julian are in jail. History trembles.

By Craig Murray Tonight both Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange are in jail, both over offences related to the publication of materials specifying US war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq, and both charged with nothing else at all. No matter what bullshit political and MSM liars try to feed… »

The Vultures of Caracas

The Vultures of Caracas

We are frequently told that people in Venezuela have no food, clothing or toilet paper, and that popular discontent with the left wing government is driven by real hunger. There are elements of truth in this story, though the causes of economic dislocation are far more complex than the media… »

The Coup in Venezuela Must Be Resisted

The Coup in Venezuela Must Be Resisted

Venezuela has elections. Juan Guaidò has never even been a Presidential candidate. Despite massive CIA opposition funding and interference over years as Big Oil tries to regain control of the World’s largest oil reserves, Nicolas Maduro was democratically re-elected in 2018 as President of Venezuela. The coup now under way… »

The Guardian Publishes Still More Blatant MI6 Lies on J. Assange

The Guardian Publishes Still More Blatant MI6 Lies on J. Assange

The Guardian, Washington Post and New York Times have been publishing a stream of deliberate lies, in collusion with the security services. The idea of the “liberal media” no longer exists in the new plutocratic age. The press are not on the side of the people, they are an instrument… »

Nationalisation Without Compensation

Nationalisation Without Compensation

“…The City of London is our enemy and will naturally attempt to resist or punish any attack on its continued ability to be the conduit for the hoovering dry of the national wealth…” When slavery was abolished in the British Empire, taxpayers paid huge sums in compensation to slave owners… »
