WATCH: Finale of Assange US Tour at National Press Club in Washington

With the WikiLeaks‘ publisher still in Belmarsh Prison in London awaiting the U.K. High Court decision on whether to accept the U.S. application for appeal of a judge’s order not to extradite Assange, his father and brother, John and Gabriel Shipton, are concluding a three-week tour of the United States.

From Miami to Boston to New York, Chicago, St. Paul, Denver, Oakland, Los Angeles and Washington DC, the tour has called on President Joe Biden to withdraw the application for appeal and drop the Espionage Act and computer intrusion charges against Assange.

Dr. Cornel West and Jimmy Dore join the People’s Party Advisory Council, launch MPP organizing campaign to Force The Vote on Medicare for all

Public intellectual and Harvard professor Dr. Cornel West and political comedian Jimmy Dore have joined the People’s Party Advisory Council. Together with the Movement for a People’s Party, they are launching the Force The Vote petition and organizing campaign. The campaign aims to pressure The Squad and House progressives to refuse to vote for Rep. Nancy Pelosi as Speaker until she publicly pledges to bring Medicare for all to the floor of the House for a vote. Nearly 10,000 people signed the petition overnight.

Dore hosted Dr. West on The Jimmy Dore Show Friday evening where they broke the news. “We’re joining forces with the Movement for a People’s Party. We are ForceTheVote.org,” said Dore. “There’s never a wrong time to do the right thing. And now is the time, in the middle of a deadly pandemic. There’s never been a better time to have a Medicare for all vote.”

„With the decline and fall of the American empire, it looks as if the system is unable to generate enough energy to seriously reform itself. It remains sanitized, superficial,“ @CornelWest says of the Biden-Harris Democratic presidential ticket. „I want fundamental change.“

America is not dying because of one corrupt president. It’s dying because our entire system is corrupt. We live in an oligarchy where both major parties serve the ruling class. It is time to build a party that serves the working class. #PeoplesConvention
