Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange On Lockdown: Dennis Bernstein Interviews John Pilger (Part 1) by Dennis Bernstein

22 April 2019 — Covert Action

Julian Assange (left) and Chelsea Manning (right) in custody after leaking (Manning) and publishing (Assange) atrocities of the U.S. government

In the USA of 2019, truth itself has become a radical act, and to be motivated by belief, instead of profit and corporate power, is to say the least, rare. Chelsea Elizabeth Manning is indeed one of those rare examples of a 21st century truth teller who has been jailed once again – having already served seven years in Leavenworth, two years in solitary – for standing up for what she believes. That Manning, who transitioned into womanhood behind bars, was taken into custody and locked down again on International Women’s Day, is almost overwhelming.

Media Lens: Assange Arrest – Part 2: ‘A Definite Creep, A Probable Rapist’

18 April 2019 — Media Lens

In December 2010, Guardian columnist Suzanne Moore commented on Julian Assange in the Mail on Sunday:

‘Indeed it’s difficult to get a clear picture of the complaints by two women he had sex with in Sweden in August… The sex appears to have been consensual, though his refusal to use condoms was not. His behaviour looks bad rather than illegal but who really knows? The Swedish prosecutors themselves say they believe these women’s stories but don’t believe these are crimes.’

‘Who really knows?’ The answer, of course, was and is that, in the absence of a trial, nobody except the people directly involved knows what really happened.

15 April 2019 — James Petras
