The brass neck of Julian Assange


On 1 March, the Old Vic theatre in London is hosting the première of Europe’s Last Dictator — a film documenting torture and state-sponsored murder and kidnap in Aleksandr Lukashenko’s Belarus. I don’t know if it looks at the brilliantly subversive Belarus Free Theatre, which has been at the forefront of the dissident movement, but I have been heartened to see British actors — Ian McKellen, Jude Law, Sienna Miller, Samuel West — responding to appeals for solidarity from their fellow performers in Belarus by taking up the cause of the opposition. Given this admirable record, it is no surprise to learn that Joanna Lumley will be co-hosting the evening at the Old Vic.

It is more of a surprise to learn that standing alongside her will be Julian Assange.

  1. Masterfully Done!, November 29, 2011By Brett Reistad See all my reeivwsThis reeivw is from: Mission to Berlin: The American Airmen Who Struck the Heart of Hitler’s Reich (Hardcover)Mission to Berlin is a gripping account of America’s air forces taking the War to Germany’s capital from the eyes of many participants and MUCH more. Author Bob Dorr makes no assumptions about the reader’s knowledge of America’s air war in Europe during WWII. Mission to Berlin is masterfully written, providing the reader with history, perspective, multiple vantage points and a wide range view from above, below and amidst the action. You will experience the elements, emotions, pain, and sacrifices confronting its participants. This one book easily contains more useful information than many in my library combined. After reading the author’s previous book Hell Hawks, I reasoned that this one would be a great read too. I wasn’t disappointed. If you were to add just one book on the air war in Europe to your library, this should be the one. In fact, buy two and share this great read with a friend!
