Ukraine Jails US Commentator Gonzalo Lira for Speaking Uncomfortable Facts 

- US political commentator Gonzalo Lira was arrested by the Ukrainian SBU for allegedly “producing Russian propaganda;” 

- The Kharkov Oblast Prosecutor’s Office posted a video of “evidence” which included Gonzalo pointing out Ukraine’s Nazi problem and the fact that the Ukrainian government has killed 1,000s by shelling the Donbass region; 

- These are verified facts admitted by the both the Western media and Western governments now supporting and sponsoring Kiev in this current conflict;

 - Pressure must be placed on the US government and Western “human rights” organizations; 

- It is Gonzalo Lira today - it could be someone else you have more in common with or even yourself tomorrow;

The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) arrested Gonzalo Lira, a US-Chilean national residing in Kharkiv, on suspicions of harbouring pro-Russian sentiments. This marks the second time Lira has been apprehended by the SBU. Lira, an author and filmmaker who relocated to Kharkiv years ago and married a Ukrainian, was initially detained in April 2022 but was released after a week without charges. He was subsequently instructed not to leave the city and prohibited from discussing his arrest.

As reported by Ukrainian media, the SBU's statement accuses Lira of publicly justifying Russia's armed aggression, denying or glorifying supposed Russian war crimes, and undermining Ukraine's top military and political leadership and Defence Forces.

On May 5, the SBU website published a statement in Ukrainian titled "SBU detained a foreign blogger in Kharkiv who denied the crimes of the Russian Federation and insulted Ukrainian defenders." The statement alleges that Lira was among the first to support Russian invaders and glorify their war crimes. It also accuses him of discrediting Ukraine's military-political leadership and Defense Forces. The SBU claims that Lira filmed provocative videos featuring Ukrainian defenders and insulted them.

Lira disseminated his "streams" on his YouTube and Telegram channels, amassing nearly 300,000 subscribers. He also denied Russian missile attacks on Ukrainian cities and the mass murder of civilians by Russian forces. The SBU has notified Lira of suspicion under parts 2 and 3 of Article 436-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (manufacturing and distributing materials containing justification of the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, committed repeatedly).

DJ, The embedded, war-industry owned western "free" press is silent...western "pro-democrcy-politicians"...silent...

Democracy is a right to disagree with those in power...Press/Media have a job controlling power...and a lot of them simply fail..."Don't look up"-media..."State/tax funded"...

Media, journalists, NOT doing their job is one thing...arresting people for trying to spread information is another thing...

Of course Julian Assange is still in a UK prison - for political reasons...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, When you look at history ;

[url]https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/890557.Who_Financed_Hitler[/url] or https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/890557.Who_Financed_Hitler ;

Who Financed Hitler is an exhaustive account of the support Hitler and the Nazi's received from German business men and other international reactionary figures (e.g. Edward VIII, the Governor of the Bank of England and Henry Ford). Pool's research is comprehensive and damning. Pool is particularly forensic in detailing the culpability of the leading representatives of the German ruling class in the success of the Nazis after the economic crash of 1929. Their fear of the rise of the German Communist Party (KPD), lead them to gamble on Hitler using his SA stormtroopers as a counter-balance. Hitler was willing to use both bribery and blackmail to manipulate these respectable backers. The Nazis were on the verge of bankruptcy in 1932 - without their financial backing, they could not have got to power.

Pool does not explain the tragic passivity of Hitler's opponents on the left. For this analysis, there is really none better that Leon Trotsky's The Struggle Against Fascism in Germany, written contemporaneously to the events themselves. The failure of the German SPD (labour party) and KPD leaderships to join in a united struggle (or united front) against Hitler, would lead to them being united in Dachau and other concentration camps. Tens of thousands of communists and socialists would be brutally tortured and killed, among Hitler's earliest victims. Pool does partially appreciate the conservative inertia of the SPD leaders, who saw themselves as an essential part of the political establishment - with a vested interest in the Weimar state. Compromise was their sole modus operandi.

In Sweden it were social democratic elite starting concentration camps to lock up opponents; [url]https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interneringsl%C3%A4ger_i_Sverige_under_andra_v%C3%A4rldskriget[/url] or https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interneringsl%C3%A4ger_i_Sverige_under_andra_v%C3%A4rldskriget ;

Internment camps in Sweden during World War II refer to internment camps , sometimes called concentration camps , which were a type of labor camp for political prisoners. In Sweden during World War II, these were a way for Swedish authorities to initially detain communists [[] who were seen as anti-state elements. [] But in time the group of inmates grew to include radical social democratssyndicaliststrade unionistsanti-Nazis and Germandeserters , so-called friends of England. [] People were also placed in the camps because of their ethnic background. [] Admission to the camps took place without trial or judgment. []

At most there were 1,500 people in the camps. []

The Social Democrat Tage Erlander was the top political official for these camps. [ 8]

DJ...both nazi's and NATO share some funding by a war-industry-banks-energy "group"...war as a way to enrich themselves...

History repeats itself in a different way...Freedom of press in the 30's in the west -not only in Germany, Italy- was "limited"...Here in NL hitler was "a head of state of a friendly nation"...we-in NL-did return Jews, deserters to Germany till may 10 1940...(the German invasion). 

Poverty, propaganda are "passive agression"...denial of global health risks, climate collapse, international racism and neo-colonialism "keeping them poor"...open the doors to wars and disasters...

Internet still has some space for people trying to get informed, making up their own opinion..The arrest of Gonzalo Lira-and the western silence on it-is an attack on democracy, an attack on all of us...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Gonzalo Lira, agree with him on anything else or not, was arrested by Ukraine SBU *specifically* for stating FACTS about Ukrainian Nazism & shelling civilians. Please retweet, pressure/expose these hypocrites - >    Gonzalo today, you tomorrow.

and

Happy to see others criticizing the Ukrainian government for arresting US-Chilean citizen Gonzalo Lira for free speech: https://helsinkitimes.fi/world-int/23512-detaining-gonzalo-lira-another-blow-to-the-freedom-of-press-in-ukraine.html Where is the   &  ? Silence is complicity, it also vindicates Russia's claims re: Ukraine, the US, & NATO.

DJ, [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FU6xfKRtJE0[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FU6xfKRtJE0 ;

2023.04.27 Joe Biden Will Be Removed—Kamala Will Be President

GL/Gonzalo Lira only paid limited attention to the Ukraine-junta...he was more busy a.o. with US politics. With also a Chile background one of his more discussed views was the CIA only was a very limited factor in the 9/11-1973 coup in Chile/murder of Salvador Allende...He thinks Chile "elite" was behind the coup...

Via Common Dreams,

Brazil's President Luiz Inacio “Lula” da Silva has called for freedom for Julian Assange and denounced the lack of concerted efforts to free the journalist. Lula spoke to a group of reporters in London Saturday while in town to attend the coronation of King Charles III. Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, has spent four years in Britain’s Belmarsh Prison while fighting extradition to the United States.

“It is an embarrassment that a journalist who denounced trickery by one state against another is arrested, condemned to die in jail and we do nothing to free him. It’s a crazy thing,” Lula told reporters. “We talk about freedom of expression; the guy is in prison because he denounced wrongdoing. And the press doesn’t do anything in defense of this journalist. I can’t understand it.”

“I think there must be a movement of world press in his defense. Not in regard to his person, but to defend the right to denounce,” Lula told the reporters. “The guy didn’t denounce anything vulgar. He denounced that a state was spying on others, and that became a crime against the journalist. The press, which defends freedom of the press, does nothing to free this citizen. It’s sad, but it’s true.”

Also, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said on Friday he too was frustrated over the continued detention of Julian Assange: "enough is enough."

"I know it's frustrating, I share the frustration," Albanese told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. from London for the coronation of King Charles III. "I can't do more than make very clear what my position is, and the U.S. administration is certainly very aware of what the Australian government's position is. There is nothing to be served by his ongoing incarceration."

"Enough is enough, this needs to be brought to a conclusion, it needs to be worked through," said Albanese.

-

President Joe Biden has been accused of hypocrisy for demanding the release of journalists around the world, while he actively seeks the extradition of Assange to face American espionage charges.

DJ, Gonzalo lira is a US citizen arrested in Ukraine for reporting his views...The US is ok with that ?

Gonzalo Lira is alive and he said this today:

Right now, I'm about to try to get out of Ukraine, and seek political asylum in Hungary.

Either I'll cross the border and make it to safety, or I'll be disappeared by the Kiev regime.

This is what's happened to me over the past three months.

On May 1, I was arrested for my YouTube videos. The photos of my arrest are pretty funny—morning bed-head made me look like a character out of Dr. Seuss.

My crime was making videos critical of the West and their proxy regime in Kiev—and how they are destroying Ukraine.

Attached to these tweets is the full indictment against me, both the original Ukrainian and English translation.

As you can see, even the prosecutor admits I committed no crime against property or any person. And I certainly provided no aid or intelligence to the Russians.

My indictment explicitly states that all I did was discuss publicly known facts about the war—the epitome of free speech in a democracy.

But Zelensky’s Ukraine is no democracy—it is a thieving, corrupt, murderous gangster regime PRETENDING to be a polite “western” democracy.

-

Once inside Sizo Prison, I was tortured in two of the four cells I was in—by the other prisoners. Guards NEVER beat prisoners—they outsource torture to the other prisoners. 

One prisoner actually apologized to me, telling me he had no choice. He wasn't lying. I understood.

I got a cracked rib in my first cell, but it wasn't too bad. The worst stretch was in my fourth cell.

From 1pm on June 21 until 7pm the next day—30 hours—I was beaten and sleep deprived, my arms twisted the wrong way around at the shoulders, and generally beaten pretty bad.

I've taken a beating in my time. So sure, it hurt like hell, but it was manageable—but then at one point, two thugs held my head and used a toothpick to scratch the whites of my left eye, while asking me if I could still read if I had just one. 

-

All told, they extorted USD$70,000 out of me, and split it among themselves. They also took another $9k when they arrested me (my emergency cash). And another 11 grand, which was the bail money.

With the computers, iPhone, etc., I'm out an even 100k on this adventure.

I'm never seeing any of that back, not even the bail money—because I've decided to leave Ukraine before my trial.

My trial is on Wednesday August 2—and I've already been told: I WILL be found guilty.

My sentence will be five to eight years in a prison labor camp.

Yeah.

-

I rode my motorcycle across Ukraine—1,400 kms in two days. 

I'm going to Hungary to ask for political asylum. 

When I fail to show up in court in Kharkov, an arrest warrant will be issued, likely an international warrant.

No doubt other EU countries will comply like sheep, returning me to serve five to eight years in a prison labor camp—

—regardless of the fact that Kiev arrested and imprisoned me for >YouTube videos!<

For free speech!

What happened to “European democratic values?

lol

And the US State Department would return me too. I'm not a black lesbian druggie, or a transgender grifter. Besides, Victoria Nuland hates my guts, or so I'm told.

I'm hoping the Hungarians will read my indictment and say, “This is bullshit—we’re not sending him back.”

I'm posting this thread just as I'm getting to the border checkpoint. I'm also posting videos on the two channels I have access to, The Roundtable and Gonzalo Lira—Again.

If you don't hear from me in the next 12 hours—whelp! I'm on my way to a labor camp!

Wish me luck.

DJ, One may not agree with the words used...but Gonzalo Lira did not break any law...his arrest is a political one...

Most EU/NATO countries will return Lira to Ukraine claiming Ukraine is a democracy...it only shows EU/NATO have become a democrazy....

I have received an email from 's father. Gonzalo Lira is dead. He died in a hospital in Kharkiv between 11-12 pm Ukraine time yesterday January 11th, 2024. The US government allowed an American YouTuber to be arrested by Ukraine and neglected to the point of death for criticizing the war. That was his only crime. He did what many of us do and paid the ultimate price. Being a YouTuber shouldn't cost you your life

Just in:

Alex Rubinstein @RealAlexRubi - 17:42 Jan 12 2024


BREAKING: It is with great sadness I must announce that Gonzalo Lira @GonzaloLira1968, passed away in a hospital according to his father, who has been fighting to get his son much-needed medical attention for the past weeks.

Here is a hand-written note from Gonzalo which I received on January 4: "I have had double pneumonia (both lungs) as well as pneumothorax and a very severe case of edema (swelling of the body). All this started in mid-October, but was ignored by the prison. They only admitted I had pneumonia at a Dec. 22 hearing. I am about to have a procedure to reduce the edema pressure in my lungs, which is causing me extreme shortness of breath, to the point of passing out after minimal activity, or even just talking for 2 minutes."

"I cannot accept the way my son has died. He was tortured, extorted, incommunicado for 8 months and 11 days and the US Embassy did nothing to help my son. The responsibility of this tragedy is the dictator Zelensky with the concurrence of a senile American President, Joe Biden," Gonzalo's father wrote.

DJ, this is how "western leaders" have destroyed democracy....outsourcing killing of critical voices...

Time for change !

Gonzalo Lira's Death Reveals SHOCKING TRUTH About Ukraine and NATO

On this special segment, we are joined by Sarah from DDGeopolitics to discuss Gonzalo Lira's untimely death and what it says about the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, "free speech," and NATO's agenda as US hegemony wanes. Independent media is under attack. Support this channel by subscribing on Patreon!

DJ, US/NATO proxy "israel" killing over 100 journalists in Gaza (out of the around 1,000 on a population of 2,3 million). In US/NATO proxy "ukraine" now a US journalist has been killed...

Gonzalo Lira, agree with him on anything else or not, was arrested by Ukraine SBU *specifically* for stating FACTS about Ukrainian Nazism & shelling civilians. Please retweet, pressure/expose these hypocrites - >    Gonzalo today, you tomorrow.

and

Gonzalo Lira is reported dead in Ukrainian prison from prolonged, untreated illness. This isn't "infotainment." This is real. Standing up to the worst people on Earth has consequences. It was Gonzalo Lira today, it can be any one of us tomorrow.

DJ, NATO sinking into nazi-style terrorism...With fascist openly bringing a nazi salute in Spain, Italy...(no doubt US/NATO elite backed...more money for more war...) 

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/political/journalist-gonzalo-lira-reported-dead-ukrainian-custody-according-father[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/political/journalist-gonzalo-lira-reported-dead-ukrainian-custody-according-father ;

"Gonzalo Lira, Sr. says his son has died at 55 in a Ukrainian prison, where he was being held for the crime of criticizing the Zelensky and Biden governments," wrote Tucker Carlson on X. "Gonzalo Lira was an American citizen, but the Biden administration clearly supported his imprisonment and torture."

DJ, reminds me of the [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamal_Khashoggi[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamal_Khashoggi  murdered by Saudi Arabia...At that time Saudi Arabia was a US ally...so killing journalists was no problem for the west...

I don’t see young people or Arabs in US voting for  so at the moment I don’t see how he can win the election If courts don’t stop Trump,  I don’t see voters stopping him A Perfect storm exists for an Implosion of #democracy in #US this year This is where we are headed.

DJ, Any sane person would stop the mass murders in Ukraine, Palestine...I think under trump we would not be in such a big mess...Still trump will bring lots of other problems...

Democrazy has to be more than a very bad choice between two old unfit men running for "PresidentOfTheUnitedStates" (POTUS)...
