There are fewer and fewer decent Journalists of courage these days.
For that reason it's even sadder to see one of them passing away!
André Vltchek R I P

This video is well worth a watch.

Andre Vltchek a roving ,on the spot Investigate Journalist , A man of Integrity and truth telling. who told it as it was , without embellishment.
One of a small group of Independent Journalists who could not be bought with the Imperial shekel.
We now depend on Pepe Escobar and Chris Hedges to carry the torch of speaking truth to Empire.
We live in times of Tyranny and despotism, speaking the Truth is now a Revolutionary act.
Andre Vltchek died at age 53 ,enroute to Instanbul to cover another story.
RIP Andre, you fought the good fight,a soldier for Truth, a rare commodity these days, where Journalism has been debauched by Corporate and Regime money.

Never had any time for him or his views if i am honest. He always came across as a shameless China propagandist and even defended it in it's human rights abuses.

His hatred of European Christendom and his constant recycling of themes about European Colonialism having a Christian zeal (he was especially anti Catholic) became tiring. He also promoted mass immigration into Europe in his columns and argued that the left in Europe had no right to say no to any Tom Dick or Muhammad who wanted to arrive, he had a globalist bent. No Pilger.
