The British government’s agenda towards Venezuela is blatantly interventionist, with the Foreign Office now flagrantly breaking international law in support of US geopolitics in Latin America, and it is backed by politicians from across the spectrum. Regardless of party allegiance, politicians serving the British establishment are intoxicated by the prospect of reining in a people who have said ‘no’ to […]
Introduction In April 2014 I was part of an international delegation which visited Syria for five days. The delegates came from many different countries. Among the notables were the Irish Nobel Laureate Mairead Maguire, a Syrian-British heart surgeon and Julian Assange’s father. We spent time in Damascus, then traveled by bus to Latakia and then Homs.

The photograph above shows independent journalist, Vanessa Beeley and Shade Shhde whose three children, wife and mother were all killed in the massacre at Mhardeh, Syria – an outrage ignored by the West’s corporate media.

The “humanitarian” tragedy in Yemen has been in the news a lot recently. What most media and NGOs fail to clarify is that this is not some mysterious “famine” that has organically transpired as a result of a war – the Yemeni people are being deliberately starved and that starvation is aided and abeted by the UN and a number of its […]

But more significantly, it bolsters the otherwise risible claim that Assange is not a publisher – and thereby entitled to the protections of a free press, as enjoyed by the Guardian or the New York Times – but the head of an organisation engaged in espionage for a foreign power.
Truth. Now there’s a word. It sounds simple doesn’t it? Superficially. Something most people would declare they align themselves with. It’s one of those obvious signifiers of decency. Truth is like Justice. Who would not say they are in favour? But just like Justice, Truth is a far more profound concept than most would dare to admit. The word […]
