Tariq Ali with Noam Chomsky on The Julian Assange Show

Appearing on The Julian Assange Show alongside renowned linguist and political theorist Noam Chomsky, Tariq Ali argues that the “infectious” Arab Spring has spread to the US and Russia, and is still underway. Criticising the “extreme centre”, a political consensus of centrist neoliberal orthodoxy that destroys political diversity and opposition, Ali talks about how the speed and flair of the Arab Spring caught everyone, from dictators and their sponsors to the Western media, by surprise.

Assange, Ali and Chomsky continue to discuss the “new hope” that resides in South America Bolivarian movements, and the democratic crisis in the Eurozone.
