​Francesca Martinez stands up against austerity & Amnesty’s battle with state surveillance [E99]

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the People’s Assembly comedy fundraiser pledged to ending the austerity agenda. Author, activist and comedienne Francesca Martinez, performing at the Hammersmith Apollo gig on Monday, says addressing suffering in the world means reducing inequality. We explore the political and media bias over Israel’s ongoing assault on Gaza and provide a round-up of this week’s prime minister’s questions. Plus, Amnesty International’s deputy director for global issues, Sherif El-Sayed-Ali, discusses the lack of public discourse on mass surveillance and the threat to freedom of expression in the wake of the human rights group’s privacy battle with the government.
