Watch the 20th Vigil for Assange

The hosts were Elizabeth Vos and Joe Lauria.

    Assange is the direct victim of the vengeful claws of Hillary Clinton via the FBI/CIA. She would have made a great President, almost as good as Trump and she still owns, via her handlers, the DNC? America continues its disintegration.

    Aside from the big names like Assange, Snowden, etc. one wonders how many little heard of cases there are of people punished to one degree or another and in one way or another for whistleblowing .

    The desperate haste by US authorities to try to fabricate fake evidence that links WikiLeaks with Chelsea Mannings testimonies, already given, to support their phony Russiagate Spy, collusion narrative is collapsing, due to the courage of Chelsea Manning. Assange & WikiLeaks merely published the leaked information that Snowden, & Manning provided them with, so they cannot be legally trialled for espionage as they only provided a Journalistic functions to expose the murderous actions of the immoral US Govt, that has committed War crimes against Humanity! It is now the job if the United Nations & the ICC to bring punitive legal actions against the US Govt to bring these Criminals to a International court such as the Hague & charge them for those War crimes! It is a complete joke that this Country can ride roughshod over International laws & think its immune from punishment? The sick irony in all of this, is that America expects everyone else in the World to abide by International law, but they think the same laws don’t apply to them! Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange & Edward Snowden are heroes & patriots for all humanity, who have suffered a the huge price & personal cost to their freedoms by refusing to submit to the evil murderers running these deceitful Govts & making a stand for human decency & the rest of Humanity by doing the right thing, according to that god given conscience! They are heroes!

    I am in awe of Julian, Chelsea, Snowden and others who are willing to undergo the tortures that the establishment will inflict in order to prevent the revelation of the TRUTH. They are my Heroes

    I am listening to this broadcast now, later. As always it is informative and beneficial. There are some audio problems this time. I commented on them, but the commenters and journalists are contributing their time to freeing Julian Assange. There are so many other important related issues discussed on these broadcasts. I’ve listened to most of them and look forward to insight gained from contributors who are wise, experienced, savvy people to support Wikileaks, Assange and democracy. Get behind this cause which costs nothing but your time.

    Joe was difficult to hear for 30 0r 40 minutes until he turned up his volume.
    I couldn’t hear James half the time either.
    Someone should monitor the reception during the vigils.
    You want to be heard. Elizabeth came on loud and clear the whole time.
    Having varying volumes from each speaker is impossible for many people to bridge.
    I have a separate speaker attached to my computer that allows me to adjust the volume, but that does not make for easy listening.
    Thank you. I enjoy and appreciate your broadcasts and recommend them.

      Also I forgot to mention that Unity4J is a global effort for a cause vital to all of our lives, and essential for life on earth.

    Joe Lauria needs to make sure his mic is turned up or that he is speaking directly into the mic. He gets very soft and hard to hear.
