Listening to Craig Murray

posted by k

While Craig Murray's blog is absent, it might be a good idea to listen to what he has to say. I'm adding a few videos. They don't all give the date when they were made.

Here is a rather smartly-dressed Craig Murray talking about evidence of torture used by the Uzbek regime. Craig Murray is referring to evidence he encountered when he was the British Ambassador to Uzbekistan.



Clicking the hotlink will take you to part 2 and part 3 of this interview.

This is a more recent talk by Craig Murray. Much of it covers the same ground but he has evidently had more time to reflect and is giving a talk rather than answering questions. The video lasts 55 minutes and the sound isn't brilliant, but I think that what he has to say remains important. That's one reason why I mind so much that his blog has been silenced.



I'm worried that there is so little coverage of the important matters addressed by Craig Murray in the national press. And there is no newspaper in Britain, so far as I can see, with the courage to repeat what Craig Murray has written about Alisher Usmanov. But the blogs continue to tell the story of Craig Murray's silencing.

Watch the videos and decide for yourself whether Craig Murray is a man you would trust.

Craig appears to be an honest, informed and caring individual. Craig demonstrates personal and political integrity which we neeed, and deserve, a lot more of in public life. It is outrageous that this individuals freedom of speech has be cutailed in this way,
Shame on the press, and other media, for not making this case more high profile, although I am sure it will suit the those who in political office who either complacently neglect, or actively seeek to curtail our precious right to free speech.

Freedom to think and speak is everyone's right and Craig has been a beacon, shining light on injustice and taking a stand.

I am sure that Craig's able mind and strong character will help you to hold true at this difficult time. Lots of people care about freedom of thought and speech.
