People should understand that the reason Covid has returned to Britain is the deliberate destruction of a public health system. So I am announcing again that my ITV film, 'The Dirty War on the NHS', is available to watch, free of charge. It tells you why.

John Pilger: My film, The Dirty War on the NHS, is now available to watch, free -

Without opposition, Parliament has legalised a lawless British state. The Overseas Operations Bill allows British soldiers to commit war crimes; the Covert Human Intelligence Sources Bill allows MI5 and others to secretly murder and torture those the BBC calls "the bad guys". twitter.com/johnpilger/status/

The greatest enemy of humanity is not Covid, but a virus whose very mention is banned in the West -- imperialism. This is the virus of rampant 19th century power by 21st century forces: of guns, war, debt, plunder, poverty. And there is a vaccine. Us.

My latest: George Monbiot, supposedly the Guardian's 'conscience of the left', offered his followers two feeble excuses for failing to raise his voice in support of Julian Assange against the US extradition bid. But this time his excuses simply won't wash jonathan-cook.net/blog/2020-10 twitter.com/Jonathan_K_Cook/st

I recorded this episode of 'Going Underground' as
the trial of Julian concluded. Hosted by Afshin Rattansi, it's a rare example of TV reporting honestly a political trial boycotted by most. The judge makes her decision on 4th January.

The trial of Julian Assange, which should never have happened, has ended. The judge will make her decision known on 4th January. If he is not freed, beware.

Outside the court where his son endures what the judge now admits is a political trial, Julian 's father, John Shipton, describes the human carnage caused by America and utters an unforgettable truth: "Julian didn't do anything, they did."

Don't Extradite Assange: WATCH: John Shipton 'Julian didn't do anything, they did'

I pay tribute to Andre Vltchek, who has died inexplicably in Turkey. Andre was a brilliant original. The relentless chronicler of people's struggles against imperial power, his principled, passionate journalism banished complacence. It can be read here globalresearch.ca/author/andre

Today, at the Julian trial, the prosecutor James Lewis (ex SAS) stooped low. In denigrating the expert evidence of Professor Michael Kopelman, he suggested Julian was exaggerating a suicidal despair should Lewis, America's man, succeed in getting him to Trump's hell. twitter.com/johnpilger/status/

In a dangerous world of corrupt or silent intellects, Stephen F.Cohen a was a beacon. Stephen, who has died, was America's scholarly voice of truth on Russia, and often paid a personal price. I urge you to read his latest book, War with Russia? His courageous warnings live on. twitter.com/johnpilger/status/

Today, at the trial, I was struck by a changed mood. Julian's defence is winning hands down, aided by the US prosecution's abuse of witnesses and idiotic attempt to prove journalism is espionage. Even Judge Reaper has gone quiet. Trashing British justice has its dangers. twitter.com/johnpilger/status/

Each day Julian is woken at 5am, handcuffed, put in holding cells, stripped naked and x-rayed. He's transported 1.5h each way in what feels like a vertical coffin in a claustrophobic van. He's in a glass box at the back of court from where he can't consult his lawyers properly.

Stella Moris: Today I'm launching a crowdjustice campaign to free Julian.

Our children need their father back. Please help me make that happen.

Today, in the trial, bullying prosecutor Lewis QC was demolished by Daniel Ellsberg and John Goetz, who made clear that had worked to redact names from the WikiLeaks' leaks - names made public after the Guardian's Leigh and Harding disclosed a secret password. twitter.com/johnpilger/status/

Today in the Old Bailey I watched the grim farce of the US/UK attempt to extradite Julian . The bullying prosecutor is reduced to insulting the integrity of expert witnesses. Trapped behind glass, Julian is denied free access to his barrister. This is Britain's shame. twitter.com/johnpilger/status/

Journalist Mark Davis filmed Julian during negotiations with the Guardian over use of WikiLeaks' war crimes revelations. In this just-unearthed 2011 interview, Assange explains how redactions were made, contrary to US claims in court. Go to 29:00

Xenophon Davis: From the archives - Mark Davis's interview with Julian Assange, first broadcast in February 2011.

Julian 's extradition hearing at the Old Bailey reveals that free journalism - not the subservient variety - is on trial. An innocent man is subjected not to due process, but to the revenge of great power whose crimes he courageously disclosed.

Support for Julian should not be blind support for the "freedom of the press". The principle is bereft; there is no free press, as Julian's eloquent chronicler Craig Murray argues in this piece:

The political trial of Julian is under way in London. So, too, is the trial of British justice, and of our right to publish and know about the crimes of our governments. Whose side are you on?
Below is the address I gave outside the Old Bailey.
