Patrick Henningsen, Fidel Navraez

The following interview was recorded after Julian Assange’s US extradition hearing in London on June 14, 2019, where SUNDAY WIRE host Patrick Henningsen met and spoke with diplomat and former Ecuadorian Consul for the UK, Fidel Navraez, who is also a close friend of Julian Assange and was with him throughout his application and asylum with Ecuador and during a six year  period in the Ecuadorian Embassy serving under the Correa government. This was a very informal and candid interview with Fidel who was able to give some key insights on the case and also on Assange as a person, his politics, his relationship with Ecuador, and also his commitment to WikiLeaks’ mission of transparency and speaking truth to power.

LIVE: Imperialism on Trial – Free Julian Assange

“There is a war being waged against journalism and whistle-blowers. The very cornerstone of a democracy is a free press, and we have seen how this fourth estate has capitulated to every whim of the neoliberal and imperialists’ agenda. And because of this, we require alternative media outlets, such as Wikileaks, to do the job that the mainstream aren’t doing, which is about exposing corporate and governmental malfeasance.”

Speakers from a variety of backgrounds will share their expertise on imperialism in general, and on the Julian Assange case in particular.
