Julian Assange & Prison Abolition

Chris Hedges and Stella Assange in conversation about the depravity and barbarism of the prison industrial complex and, in particular, Julian Assange’s experience in Belmarsh Prison. Chris has worked in the prison system for many years and has great insight into the carceral state. There are 1.68 million prisoners languishing in prisons in the United States of America today, second only to China in total number of incarcerated persons per capita.
