RIP John Pilger (1939-2023): ‘Israel is a lying machine, Palestine has the right to defend itself’


On this special episode of Going Underground, we pay tribute to legendary journalist and film-maker John Pilger, who passed away at the age of 84. He was the award-winning author of the books ‘Hidden Agendas’, ‘Heroes’ and ‘A Secret Country’, and was renowned for his eye-opening films such as ‘The Coming War on China’, ‘Palestine is Still The Issue’ and ‘The War You Don’t See’. Over the years, he appeared many times on Going Underground delivering ground-breaking analysis. Today we air an interview with John Pilger that was first aired in 2021, during the last Israeli bombing campaign of Gaza. He discusses why Palestine is still the issue, the legal right of Palestinians to defend themselves, the mainstream media’s shameful ‘both sides’ reporting, the role of the US, UK and EU in arming Israel, the US-led campaign for the coming war on China, the persecution of Julian Assange and much more.
