Putting Up A Fight: Venezuela, Assange Extradition, and Holocaust Remembrance Day

Putting Up A Fight: Venezuela, Assange Extradition, and Holocaust Remembrance Day

Skimm This - May 2, 2019 - 12:59

Venezuela still doesn’t know who’s in charge. We’ll talk about why the US was predicting a peaceful transition of power - and why now they’re keeping all the cards on the table. Then: the US wants Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to cross the pond. Today he said: rather not. We’ll explain how the extradition process works. And finally: it’s Holocaust Remembrance Day. In Hebrew, that’s Yom HaShoah. A Holocaust survivor -- and the relative of a Skimm HQ’r -- shares his story.
