      He's a political prisoner and everyone knows it. This country is supposed to have one of the best justice systems in the world.

      This is basically a transfer from solitary confinement to house arrest.

      At least we're now on the same level as Burma.

        Video of Julian Assange statement

        Just found a video recording of the statement. Who else thinks that the blonde woman to Julian's right is going to be the next rape allegation in 3 months time?

        Julian Assange: WikiLeaks faces 'very aggressive' investigation by US

        Organisation's founder says he is reliant on public opinion to rein in 'superpower that does not appear to be following rule of law'


        Here

        We shouldn't forget how extraordinary it is to have a journalist in jail over allegations (no charges, "evidence" previously thrown out for being so weak etc...) made in a foreign country.

        Especially when the timing is so suspect.


        Interesting quotes

        the British courts say that it did not need to provide a shred of evidence – said this three times – and in fact has provided nothing, not a single shred of evidence in its extradition hearings, in the hearings that ended up putting me in solitary confinement for 10 days.

        "Similarly, in the United States, what appears to be a secret grand jury investigation against me, or our organisation – not a single comment about what is actually going on."


        Assange said he was worried about the prospect of being sent to the US, adding: "There have been many calls by senior political figures in the United States, including elected ones in the Senate, for my execution, the kidnapping of my staff, the execution of the young soldier Bradley Manning ... that's a very, very serious business.

        This is very interesting - is it possible that Assanage can resist extradition to the USA on the basis that they might kill him? I know we can't return immigrants for these reasons.

          It depends on the pressure applied to the UK government. They extradited Gary McKinnon and he was a British citizen with a mental disorder. This government appears to have slightly more of a backbone compared to the last one and obviously there'll be a much bigger backlash compared to the McKinnon case so they won't imo unless strong pressure is applied from the US.

          Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.

              WikiLeaks: Julian Assange says police feared he would be assassinated outside High Court
              The founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange has claimed he is being bombarded with death threats from American soldiers.

              Here


              Anyone else noticed the way the Guardian is turning on wikileaks?

              Disgusting.

              There is a lot of behind the scenes pressure being put on the media. The government can issue gags that the media can't even talk about as well. ****ing BS.

              Death to (Bank of) AMERICA!

              Wikileaks Congressional Hearing: http://cspan.org/Events/Lawmakers-Di...10737418252-1/

              ie. Lawmakers trying to get advise on how they can change the law to stop wikileaks.
              That's really dumb. All Assanage has to do is 'resign' from his position and then wikileaks goes underground.

              :lolwut:

              You really have to wonder just what **** they be smoking in the BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.
