With British courts nearing a possible decision on whether to extradite Julian Assange to the U.S., Jeff Mackler speaks to Mickey about the campaign to free Assange (founder of Wikileaks). Then we hear a conversation with online journalist Kevin Gosztola about the Assange case, as well as cases of several U.S. whistleblowers. Jeff Mackler is a member of AssangeDefense.org and a co-organizer of an October 23 free-Assange demonstration in Oakland, CA. He’s also on the board of the United National Antiwar Coalition.
Kevin Gosztola is the managing editor of the news web site Shadowproof.com. He has covered the Julian Assange legal proceedings in the UK from the beginning, as well as other press-freedom and whistleblower cases. Mickey’s conversation with Kevin Gosztola is a rebroadcast from a Project Censored Show of this past August.
