Notable excerpt from the video:

Noam Chomsky on Europe’s reactions towards Edward Snowden:

There are, I think, by now four Latin American countries that offer Asylum to Snowden, not one European country – in fact they won’t even let him cross their borders. Why? Because the master in Washington tells them “we don’t want him to”. And Snowden, it’s important to recall, performed an enormous service, a patriotic service in fact, to the people of the United States and the world. He revealed to the population, what your government is doing to you. That’s just what he should have done. That’s the responsibility of a decent citizen. The idea that you should be punished for this is really grotesque, and that Europe participates in it is even worse. Same is true for Assange.

  1. hello

    I wish you had a separate audio page. Wish you would take the youtube videos and just extract the audio and make same available for download as an mp3 file.
    Some of us don’t have the download capacity to download all these large video files. I’m allowed only 41mb of data download each day ant that’s it. 41mb per day is 1250mb per month, which equals 10 gigabit, and that’s all Exede Satellite allows so if you want to get out your message to more people, remember, a lot of us do not have unlimited download ability…
