The US Police-State Is Now Undeniable: The Assange Case By Eric Zuesse

20 July 2019 — Strategic Culture Foundation

It’s not just that the United States has a higher percentage of its people in prison than does any other nation on the planet. (El Salvador — the land that was largely made what it today is, by its US trained-and-equipped death squads — is now number 2 on that measure.

For many weeks, Honduras has been in a convulsive situation. Several dead and wounded at the hands of the repressive forces of the state, political prisoners, militarization of the country, military entry to the campus of the National Autonomous University of Honduras, shooting students. In addition, days of brutal repression against high school students; children with stones against trained and armed assassins! But there is no report by Mrs. Michelle Bachelet on Honduras.
