10/9/20 Charles Glass on the Illegal Campaign to Eliminate Julian Assange

Scott interviews Charles Glass about Julian Assange’s extradition hearing. Glass has focused on Assange’s treatment at the hands of the U.S. and British governments and their allies, including his subjection to solitary confinement, the denial of medical treatment going back to Assange’s time in the Ecuadorian embassy and the illegal monitoring of communications with both his lawyers and his doctors. On these grounds alone, says Glass, Assange’s prosecution should be thrown out. But more importantly, Glass reminds us how heroic Assange’s work has been, as it has enabled literally thousands of news stories that exposed crimes by governments around the world. Instead of contributing to his demonization, mainstream news outlets should be flocking to Assange’s side.
