In this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Mansoor Adayfi from Yemen, a former prisoner of Guantanamo Bay. He discusses his ordeal at the camp, as well as the UK- and US-backed Saudi war on Yemen. He rails against Saudi Arabia, which he compares to ISIS. Next, Lembit Opik joins us for Broken News, discussing a report revealing that the British Army permitted shooting civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan. We also discuss the phone call between Jeremy Corbyn and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as well as the vandalization of a Karl Marx memorial. Lastly, we speak to Martyn Ware, a founding member of Heaven 17 and the Human League. He talks about his upbringing in a socialist heartland, the blacklisting of Heaven 17’s song, ‘(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang,’ and why parliament should be moved to a less-grand building.
