On the day a UK court ruled that Julian Assange will not be extradited to the US where he would face 175 years in prison, we discuss the verdict and what happens next. Speakers include: Journalists John McEvoy and Mohamed Elmaazi, Maxine Walker from the UK-based Committee to Defend Julian Assange, Trade unionist and a member of the National Executive Committee of UCU Deepa Driver and former Ecuadorian consul Fidel Narváez. The event was chaired by the Pablo Navarrete, Director of No Extradition and filmmaker at The Canary, and was broadcast live from 7-8pm on Monday 4 January 2021.
