GREEN LEFT REPORT #11: Christine Assange, Carlo Sands + more

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

The final Green Left Report for 2012 features Christine Assange, mother of Julian Assange, on why the Australian government fears WikiLeaks, the problems of the corporate press, and the WikiLeaks releases that impacted the most on her.

The episode has heaps of activist news including anti-uranium actions, protesting Lynas' toxic plant, standing up for equal marriage, and rallying for refugee rights.

Palestine is also a focus with activist news on rallies for Gaza, a speech by the director of the Palestinian human rights organisation Al Haq, and a new video by Jews Against the Occupation.

Finally, Carlo Sands rounds out the year arguing that 'being yourself' is not a good motto for everyone, especially corporate bastards.

Thanks to everyone who helped, supported and watched Green Left TV in 2012, and we look forward to an even bigger year in 2013 for 'media of the 99%'.

Lets see how "Noble" the Norwegians and their righteous Swede neighbors are or claim to be, since they offered Obama the Nobel peace prize!
