With news that there will be no easy way out for Julian Assange, I find myself empathising with those stuck in the middle – the diplomatic staff of the Ecuadorian embassy.
Julian Assange has been charged under the Espionage Act, one which is usually waved around by the US government, but seldom enforced.
CNN’s latest takedown of Julian Assange is rife with assertions that WikiLeaks worked in concert with Russian hackers. None of it is true, in fact, even the laziest Googling can disprove it.
It’s not just extreme examples like Julian Assange, the right to be heard, and the concept of dissent have been severely wounded.
Outside Julian Assange’s latest extradition hearing was a man in protest. But, he wasn’t taking the Americans to task, his target was the media sent to cover it.
