Roger Waters: Assange arrest proves UK is a satellite state of US (E739)
On this season finale of Going Underground, we speak to Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters on the arrest of Julian Assange. He calls on the UK to rise up to oppose Assange’s extradition, labels the UK a satellite state of the US empire for arresting Assange, and attacks the government of Lenin Moreno for revoking his asylum. Next we speak to UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer, who was due to visit Assange to assess his condition at the Ecuadorian Embassy. He discusses the risk of Assange not receiving a fair trial and possibly facing the death penalty, and what his potential long-term imprisonment means for freedom worldwide!
