Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange – Ep 40


Being a whistleblower is a difficult path, one that only a few choose to follow.  Chelsea Manning is one of those people, but the pain of her choice continues to haunt her in horrifying ways.  Here, we discuss Chelsea Manning’s jailtime over her refusal to testify in a grand jury proceeding related to Julian Assange.  We also discuss Assange’s recent loss of asylum by the Ecuadorian embassy and arrest by UK authorities.
