In the third episode of The World Tomorrow Julian Assange speaks with Tunisia’s first post-revolution leader Moncef Marzouki about the West’s double standards in protecting human rights. He is a former human rights activist. During the reign of the previous President he was imprisoned and kept in solitary confinement, which he considers to be torture. Once elected Head of State, he has vowed to put an end to human rights violations in Tunisia.
Marzouki recalls how he was invited to the US to talk about the human rights situation in Tunisia with a man he believed was involved in the Guantanamo controversy. Torture and the West’s double standards on the issue is indeed one of the hottest topics in this episode of the show.
