The Julian Assange Show: Occupy *ARCHIVE* *PARTNER CONTENT*

United Kingdom, London
August 21, 2019 at 12:16 GMT +00:00 · Published

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is currently serving a 50-week sentence in London's Belmarsh prison, interviewed activists and leaders of the Occupy movement in the seventh episode of 'The Julian Assange Show' in 2012.

The twelve-episode series originally aired on RT from April to July 2012.

In this episode, Assange talked with Marisa Holmes, Alexa O’Brien and David Graeber from Occupy New York, Aaron Peters and Naomi Colvin from Occupy London.

In his series, Assange interviewed "iconoclasts, visionaries and power insiders." Speaking at the time of the filming of his show, Assange said that the mainstream media is labelling him as an "enemy combatant, a traitor, who interviews terrible radicals from around the world."

The Ecuadorian Embassy in London was the home of Assange for almost seven years after he entered the property on 19 June 2012.

He was arrested by British police on 11 April 2019 after Ecuador officially revoked his asylum status and allowed UK police to escort him from the embassy and into custody.

A British court sentenced Assange to 50 weeks in prison on May 1 for jumping bail when he took refuge in the embassy in 2012.
