How a Police State Starts
Craig Murray - TRANSCEND Media Service, 12 Oct 2020

On Saturday [3 Oct] a small, socially distanced vigil of 18 people for Julian Assange at Piccadilly Circus was broken up by twice that number of police and one elderly man arrested and taken into custody. The little group of activists have been holding the vigil every week. I had just arrived to thank them and was astonished to see eight police vans and this utterly unnecessary police action.

In Court: The Annihilation of Julian Assange
Amb. Craig Murray – TRANSCEND Media Service, 4 Nov 2019

22 Oct 2019 – I was deeply shaken while witnessing yesterday’s events in Westminster Magistrates Court.

Israeli Murders, NATO and Afghanistan
Craig Murray – TRANSCEND Media Service, 7 Jun 2010

Therefore what is troubling the hearts and souls of non-Americans in NATO HQ is this fundamental question. Is NATO genuinely a mutual defence organisation, or is it just an instrument to carry out US foreign policy? With its unthinking defence of Israel and military occupation of Afghanistan, is US foreign policy really defending Europe, or is it making the World less safe by causing Islamic militancy?
