Twitter Web App : The internecine warfare among Britain's elite over Brexit - Tory and Labour - was angrily interrupted today by the father of a sick child, who raised the one issue that concerns almost all Britons: the destruction of the NHS. Watch this.

Twitter Web App : I spoke to Julian #Assange at the weekend. His psychological torture is unabated. He remains isolated in his small cell, mostly 23 hours a day, denied proper exercise. He has lost more weight. Although 'approved', phone calls to his parents are still not possible. Britain 2019.

Twitter Web App : The Great Propaganda War on China now turns on the "uprising" in Hong Kong. Forget that China is surrounded by 400 US bases, described in Washington as "the perfect noose". This report from the excellent Grayzone investigates the illusions of Hong Kong.

Twitter Web App : Watch, on RT's Going Underground, a discussion on the current imposition of imperial power dressed as democracy, and reports on the latest restrictions on Julian #Assange as he endures his fifth month as a political prisoner. youtu.be/3OXTfShPMHg

Twitter Web App : Visiting Julian #Assange in prison I glimpsed his barbaric treatment. Isolated, denied proper exercise, access to the library, a laptop, he cannot prepare his defence. He is even denied calls to his US lawyers. His UK lawyer wrote to the governor on 4 June. Silence. How lawless.

Twitter Web App : Watch this revelation by Mark Davis, the award-winning journalist and lawyer, a crucial witness to the Guardian's and NY Times' betrayal of Julian #Assange who faces extradition for what they did, too. Note their silence as #Assange fights for his life.

Twitter Web App : Do not forget Julian #Assange. Or you will lose him.
I saw him in Belmarsh prison and his health has deteriorated. Treated worse than a murderer, he is isolated, medicated and denied the tools to fight the bogus charges of a US extradition. I now fear for him. Do not forget him.

Twitter Web App : A US Federal Court has ruled that WikiLeaks and Julian #Assange lawfully published the Hillary Clinton emails and found "no evidence" of collusion with Russia. The fabrications of the "free media" have dissolved into silence. wsws.org/en/articles/20…

Twitter Web App : The ABC's Sally Neighbour, in charge of investigative reporting at the state broadcaster, has bothered to re-tweet a minor troll's bile about Julian #Assange's "zombie" supporters, which include his parents. The cowardly Neighbour has since deleted it. She should be sacked.

Twitter Web App : I have spoken to Julian #Assange whose courage is undimmed. By contrast, the ABC has broadcast the second part of a smear posing as journalism by Michael Brissenden. The gratuitous abuse, omissions and servitude to the lies of power make a textbook model of modern propaganda.

Twitter Web App : Sally Neighbour of ABC Australia wonders if anyone "cares" about her craven abuse of Julian #Assange. In fact, many care about the collusion of those claiming to be journalists with sinister power in its pursuit of #Assange. Her phoney 4Corners "investigation" is a model.

Twitter Web App : ABC Australia has broadcast a Trump regime-grovelling, dishonest "investigation" into Julian #Assange. The exec producer is Sally Neighbour who last year re-tweeted, "Assange is Putins bitch." Students note the depth to which Vichy journalism has descended.

Twitter Web App : The fines imposed on Chelsea Manning -- jailed for refusing to lie about Julian #Assange - have doubled to $1,000 a day. She will soon be bankrupt, having lost her home. And yet silence envelops this hero, including on the "left". Break the silence. wsws.org/en/articles/20…

Twitter Web Client : The historical record of Israel's brutal, racist origins is being systematically destroyed, reveals the Israeli newspaper Haaretz. This helps us understand the nature of the dishonest Zionist campaign to destroy Jeremy Corbyn. haaretz.com/israel-news/.p…
