SND #41 Action For Assange co-founder Taylor Haduk

Julian Assange sits in Belmarsh Prison, the UK's Guantanamo, awaiting extradition to the US for exposing the crimes of empire.The UN Rapporteur on Torture, Nils Melzer, has confirmed that Assange is the victim of concentrated and ongoing torture. Unsure of what to do, but knowing that something had to be done, Taylor Hudak, independent journalist, created Action for Assange with fellow Ohioan Andrew Zigmund. We talk about the new organization, debunk some common smears used against Julian, and discuss ways everyday people can help get the word out about the impending death of free press.
