GREEN LEFT TV: Tariq Ali: Why Ecuador?


"Why is it that an Australian, facing prosecution from a European country, decides to appeal for asylum to a South American republic?" Tariq Ali posed and eloquently answered this important question when he spoke outside the Embassy of Ecuador in London on August 19, 2012, before Wikileaks founder Julian Assange spoke from the balcony of the embassy where he has been granted political asylum by the progressive Rafael Correa government of Ecuador.
