Once again, Julian Assange is doing a great job as a journalist. Unfortunately this will be the last bit of the Julian Assange show RT series: watch them all here: http://assange.rt.com/ or here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL19A6F6A10DCFB253
Absolutely rivetting video from Nuckelchen.Kuddos! Watching it once would be missing most of it.Four times is not even enough to see it all.Speaks for itself.Don't forget to watch it full screen. The amount of activity on Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has reached a climax. Especially, but not only on reactor #4. Spraying / Deconstructing / running and toiling / cranes, elevators, trucks and the like operating like mad. Like hell would be more appropriate...

Great testimony by ANTHONY GRAVES. Thank you again Democracy NOW! In a rare interview, former Texas death row prisoner Anthony Graves joins us to recount his experience in solitary confinement and how he was fully exonerated and released from prison in 2010. Graves was convicted in 1994 of assisting Robert Carter, a man he barely knew, in the brutal murders of six people. There was no physical evidence linking Graves to the crime, and his conviction relied primarily on Carter’s testimony. Before he was executed, Carter twice admitted he had lied about Graves’s involvement in the crime. In 2006, an appeals court overturned Graves’s conviction and ordered a new trial, saying prosecutors had elicited false statements and withheld testimony. After 18 years in prison, most of them on death row, Graves was exonerated and reunited with his family after a special prosecutor concluded he was an innocent man. Graves is now an active member of the movement to abolish the death penalty. "My experience was hell," Graves says. "I always liken it to something that you would consider to be your worst nightmare. I had to go through that experience every day for 18-and-a-half years. And it was just no way to live." Urging an end to the death penalty, Graves says: "They’re killing in your name. And I say to you, stand up and tell these people, 'Not in my name anymore.'" [includes rush transcript] http://www.democracynow.org/2012/6/22/from_death_row_to_exoneration_fmr

Let's keep reading and the truth will come out The Japan Times Monday, June 4, 2012 http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/nn20120604a6.html or this from News10.net June 3, 2012 http://www.news10.net/news/local/article/195483/2/Fukushima-still-feeds-lawmakers-concerns-for-West-Coast or this from Oregonlive.com June 2, 2012 http://www.oregonlive.com/opinion/index.ssf/2012/06/serving_tuna_with_a_geiger_cou.html
“When Columbus and his men came ashore in the Bahama Islands and were met by the Arawak people he was to later write in his journal: “They brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things, which they exchanged for the glass beads and hawks’ bells. They willingly traded everything they owned. They were well-built, with good bodies and handsome features . . .They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane . They would make fine servants . With fifty men we couldsubjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.” p. 1 This chilling and foreboding statement achieves even an even darker tone when considering the fate of the Arawak people. “In two years, through murder, mutilation or suicide, half of the 250,000 Indians on Haiti were dead. By the year 151, there were perhaps 50,000 Indians left. By 1550, there were 500. A report of the year 1650 shows none of the original Arawaks or their descendants left on the island.” p. 4-5 “The treatment of heroes (Columbus) and their victims (the Arawaks) - the quiet acceptance of conquest and murder in the name of progress - is only one aspect of a certain approach to history, in which the past is told from the point of view of governments, conquerors, diplomats, leaders.” p.9 Quotes taken from: A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn.

or Amy Goodman http://www.democracynow.org/ on Julian Assange http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/may/31/americas-vendetta-against-wikileaks-julian-assange EXTRACTS Subtitle: As the contrast with the extradition case of Augusto Pinochet shows, it's one law for whistleblowers, another for war criminals. The United Kingdom carefully considers extradition requests, as famously demonstrated when crusading Spanish judge Baltasar Garzon hoped to prosecute former Chilean dictator Pinochet for torture committed under his rule from 1973 to 1990. Based on Garzon's indictment, Pinochet was arrested in 1998 while travelling in London. After 16 months of hearings, the British courts finally decided that Pinochet could be extradited to Spain. The British government intervened, overruling the court, and allowed him to return to Chile. WHAT'S YOUR PICK?
