It has been 106 days since Julian Assange was illegally evicted from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and arrested brutally by London’s Metro police. He has been incarcerated against 2 UN rulings. Imprisoned for using his right to free speech and press freedom to expose the U.S. militarys crimes against humanity, he has suffered for over 7 years. While his health deteriorated and he was psychologically tortured, he still continued to publish documents in the public interest.
The U.N. special rapporteur on torture, Nils Melzer, has called for his release to no avail. Stating that: “In 20 years of work with victims of war, violence and political persecution, I have never seen a group of democratic states ganging up to deliberately isolate, demonize and abuse a single individual for such a long time.”
He also has stated that Assange shows all the signs of prolonged psychological torture. Within weeks of Assange’s arrest, he was admitted to the Belmarsh Prison’s hospital ward for such a drastic loss of weight. Though his weight was stabilized, Krisstin Hraffnsson the editor of Wikileaks said at his last visit Assange was still on the medical unit.
Everything in this case so far has been illegal and either a case of human rights violations or a criminal act against international laws. Yet the U.S. and U.K. continue to violate the rights of individuals and the press by holding him hostage though he is an innocent man. The 18 indictments filed against him by the U.S. DOJ are preposterous and are against the U.S. Constitution, namely the 1st amendment.
While Assange is slowly assassinated, the media continues it’s smearing of one of its own in a murderous surge of propaganda. MSM has become an agent of the corrupt corporate owned government. With politicians being selected rather than elected, it is up to the average person to stand up and fight this tyrranical act of injustice.
Your hatred is misdirected at one another and needs to be focused on those who use our tax dollars to murder the innocent, steal from the poor and hide it behind the word “classified.” It is an outrage and a despicable act of tyranny to set such a precedent against our right to know as well as our legal rights as citizens.
If we do not have real investigative journalists exposing the injustices and rights violations, the elite will only increase in power and will never be held accountable for their evil. You cannot count on your leaders to represent you. You must stand up for yourselves. No one will return your rights without a fight.
Julian Assange is a man who has risked his life and his future to help those who cannot help themselves. He only wanted justice for the torturous war crimes an empire committed in act of cruelty towards mankind to steal their resources and chaotically take over. In a bad replica of Star Wars, the empire wants to take over the world by annihilating anyone who opposes it’s domination. Assange fought it the only way he knew how to peacefully. He published their deceit. In return, they intend to destroy him. By destroying him and Wikileaks, they can continue their intentions of overtaking any country who opposes them without any fear of retribution.
First they took the journalists and replaced them with propagandists who only repeated the government’s agenda. We don’t know what happened after that. The truth was never allowed to be told…
