Rose McGowan on Sarah Everard vigil, police violence, Andrew Cuomo allegations & more (E990)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to award-winning actor and activist Rose McGowan. She discusses the murder of Sarah Everard in the UK and police brutality against women holding a vigil to commemorate her and protest against violence and sexual violence against women, why Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick must resign over the police brutality at the vigil, victim shaming of women survivors of sexual assault, and rape continuing despite the #MeToo movement and increased publicity, sexual assault allegations against US President Joe Biden and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and much more!

Next, we speak to Ian Paisley Jr. MP of the DUP. He discusses why the Northern Ireland Protocol in Boris Johnson's Brexit deal does not work, why the DUP is not responsible for the Northern Ireland Protocol, the protocol's creation of chaos on the island of Ireland, and whether the DUP's support for Brexit is leading to a United Ireland! Finally, we speak to John Finucane MP of Sinn Fein. He discusses Ian Paisley Jr's accusation that Sinn Fein is now working for royalist interests in Northern Ireland, Boris Johnson's visit to Northern Ireland and issues that Sinn Fein seeks to raise with the government, the need for more cooperation between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland going forward after coronavirus, why Sinn Fein is calling for Irish prime minister Leo Varadkar to resign, and much more!

We contacted the EU, who directed us to this statement by the EU's co-chair of the Joint Committee, Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič: “The Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland is the only way to protect the Good Friday (Belfast) Agreement and to preserve peace and stability, while avoiding a hard border on the island of Ireland and maintaining the integrity of the EU single market. The EU and the UK agreed the Protocol together. We are also bound to implement it together. Unilateral decisions and international law violations by the UK defeat its very purpose and undermine trust between us. The UK must properly implement it if we are to achieve our objectives. That is why we are launching legal action today. I do hope that through the collaborative, pragmatic and constructive spirit that has prevailed in our work so far on implementing the Withdrawal Agreement, we can solve these issues in the Joint Committee without recourse to further legal means.”
