[I’m not sure if responding to this BBC survey is worth the effort or not, but who knows? In any case, I’ve just completed it and zoomed it off. Perhaps, just perhaps, if enough of us respond, something might change, though the role of the BBC in propagandizing for the state is so crucial in preserving the status quo, the odds are against it.

He has already served 15 months, including weeks in solitary confinement. Joining us from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says Hammond’s prosecution comes as part of a wider crackdown “on effective political activists and alleged journalistic sources.
