US sanctions on Iran without negotiations means WAR – UN sanctions rapporteur (E781)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to UN Sanctions Rapporteur Idriss Jazairy about the escalating crisis between the US and Iran, why sanctions never achieve their goals of regime change, how endless sanctions without room for negotiation could mean war, US sanctions killing 40,000+ in Venezuela, and more! Next, we speak to Lizzie O’Shea, author of ‘Future Histories,’ on the history of mass surveillance and policing, how police and mass surveillance have been used throughout history and today to protect class interests and maintain the status quo, how big tech companies are inhibiting freedom, and why the technological revolution has disappointed!

READ MORE: Statement from an EU spokesperson regarding sanctions and Venezuela:

"Let me stress that the European Union does not have sanctions on Venezuela. What we have in place are targeted individual restrictive measures on individuals that have had responsibilities in terms of either violence or of obstructing the democratic process.

They do not affect Venezuela as a country or the Venezuelan people.

Our primary concern is the improvement of the humanitarian situation in the country and the wellbeing of the Venezuelan population".
