John Pilger interview: Israel is a lying machine, Palestine has the right to resist! (E1012)
On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to legendary journalist and filmmaker John Pilger. He discusses why Palestine is still an issue in 2021, and the Israeli aerial bombardment of Gaza which has claimed hundreds of lives, including 63 children, and displaced over 50,000. He talks about the EU, US and UK role in the Israeli bombardment, Palestine’s legal right to resist, and Hamas as a part of a resistance provoked by Israeli occupation. He addresses the ‘media boycott’ of Gaza and why the mainstream media’s ‘both sides’ assertions are false, the entrenching Israeli illegal occupation of Palestine, the US-led campaign against China and the likelihood of war breaking out, China’s rise and memory of its ‘century of humiliation’ due to dominance by imperialist powers, the persecution of Julian Assange, and much more!
