Assange, Palestine and Isolation
Another world is possible…
While the Tour de France was coming to a close on the Champs Elysee in Paris, 92 bike riders and 15 teams were completing over 8000 km in Australia.That is roughly the distance from Paris across Europe and Asia to Seoul in Korea. Not a single media organisation cupboard the big ride for Palestine. Why?
The big ride raised over $33,000 for the Bourj el Barajneh in Beirut where refugees lack food, basic health services and the right to work.While the peloton were sipping champagne in Paris before the eyes of the world refugees in the camp are struggling to survive.
We also covered the final week of Assange extradition trial at the old Bailey in London.
Finally we played tracks from Andy’s Isolation MixTape #2 and one from Ian’s collection of Covid Isolation songs.
