WATCH: CN Live! — ‘Doctors’ Orders: Don’t Extradite Assange’

Jill Stein, Bill Hogan, Sue Wareham & Mary Kostakidis join CN Live! tonight 7pm EDT on Doctors for Assange’s letter telling Priti Patel it is medically and ethically “unacceptable” to extradite Julian Assange to the U.S.

More than 300 doctors have written to U.K. Home Secretary Priti Patel to remind her that Julian Assange‘s stroke has not been discussed in the courts and that the U.S. assurances, based on a mental health condition only, are obsolete. 

Guests: Dr. Jill Stein, Prof. Bill Hogan, Dr. Sue Wareham & Mary Kostakidis.
Time: Monday June 13 at 7pm EDT / Tuesday June 14 12am BST / 9am AEST 
Hosts: Elizabeth Vos, Joe Lauria and Cathy Vogan.

    THIS just in! “Rwanda asylum flight cancelled after 11th-hour ECHR intervention.” Ditto for Assange?

    Very interesting and intelligent discussion as always from CN. Of ourse what is so annoying regarding the issues surrounding Julian Assanges’ health, important though they are, is that he should not be where he is in the first place. Priti Patel has to make the only right and intelligent decision this week, or lose all credibility forever. And that goes for all the other members of Boris Johnsons’ government also, who I very rarely, if ever, hear even speaking julian Assanges name.

    There are so many things that are wrong with this case, and none that are right. What right does the US have to extend its legal jurisdiction to other countries on the basis of any kind of unproven charge, particularly those that are politically motivated?

    Putting the politics aside for a moment, there is no evidence of any wrong doing in any other country. Assange has not broken any laws – anywhere. He is in a maximum security prison in the UK – but has not been convicted of any crime, nor is he charged with any crime in the UK, having served his time for skipping bail. He should have been discharged and released, but is still being held illegally. The UK courts ignore this basic fact, bowing to US pressure to extradite him while following a token legal process that is riddled with holes and flaws.

    What disturbs me the most, however, is how little of the mainstream media reports on what is a huge threat to their independence and ability to report sensitive material. They collude with western establishments that are increasingly supressing freedoms and rights everywhere.

    Assange’s worsening health is just the latest of the problems facing him, but the persecution continues. Even the newly elected Australian prime minister, Anthony Albanese, who recently indicated his support for repatriating Assange (to Australia), has backed off and dismissed questions about whether he will intercede on Assange’s behalf. No doubt he has been warned off by his new (US) bosses.

    Priti Patel is undoubtedly under enormous pressure to approve the extradition – not just from the US but from her own government that seems to be even more compliant with US pressure.

    She, however, is dammed if she does, and damned if she doesn’t.

    Many out there still have uncertainties and/or questions about the Assange “case”. This video will answer just about all of them. Definitely worth the time if we’re interested in saving this life and the future of the global press.
