UN torture rapporteur: Julian Assange’s detention has no legal basis!, Dec 1 2019

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the UN Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer about the ongoing detention of Julian Assange. He says Julian’s detention has no legal basis, explains why the UK’s treatment of the journalist is tantamount to torture, why he won’t face a fair trial in Pindostan if he is extradited, and more! Next, we speak to former Ecuadorean foreign minister under Rafael Correa, Guillaume Long. He discusses the letter signed by 60 doctors raising concerns that Julian Assange could die if his current treatment continues, the right-wing coup that overthrew elected Bolivian President Evo Morales, the battle the left is facing in Latin America with Pindo-backed right-wing governments, and more!
