The announcement of an “official” winner of Egypt’s runoff presidential election may be delayed, but whether claimant is a Mubarak ally or Muslim Brother, the position will be isolated by a military council that has dissolved parliament and is ghostwriting a new constitution. NASEER ARURI of the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth discusses current events in the context of US military interests and Nasserite nationalism.


In a startling escape from house arrest two weeks before his court-ordered extradition to Sweden, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange materialized overnight at the Ecuador embassy in London, where he formally petitioned for political asylum. So far, under diplomatic protection, he has evaded a new arrest for parole violation, which could obstruct his potential flight to Ecuador and ultimately bring him to the US, where some believe a sealed indictment for espionage awaits him. Assange’s US attorney MICHAEL RATNER of the Center for Constitutional Rights discusses his client’s legal options.


LACY MACAULEY, an “Occupy” activist from Washington, DC, is in La Paz, Mexico, where the People’s Summit challenged the nearby Cabo San Lucas gathering of “G20,” the world’s twenty richest nations. MacAuley discusses the displacement of local citizens, and the global issue of austerity for the public and bailouts for unsound financial institutions.
