In the last hours, Mr Julian Assange made a declaration from a balcony on the Ecuador embassy on The UK. Assange demanded the U.S. to stop the “witch hunt” against WikiLeaks and himself. “As WikiLeaks stands under threat, so does the freedom of expression and the Health of our societies” said Assange during his declaration. I agree with him, like I said on my previous post on Assange which I’ll link HERE, I said that It’s known that when something happens and the American Government doesn’t like it, It’s going down.
“The U.S. war on whistleblowers must end” and called for the freedom of Mr Bradley Manning, a U.S. solider suspected of giving hundreds of thousands of pages of secret American government documents to Assange for publication on WikiLeaks. These people are not traitors, or deserters, they are the people that stand by what they believe is right and have the balls to do what they did.
Assange fled to the embassy to avoid extradition to sweden where he would be questioned for alleged “sex crimes”. Like I said on my last post on Assange, he would only be extradited to sweden under bullshit charges just to later be taken to America where he would face charges for treason.
Assange’s attorney Baltazar Garzon said Mr Assange is willing to answer Swedish prosecutors questions, but only if he is given certain guarantees. I guess protection from extradition to America.
I will still be on the side of Assange because I believe that what he did was the right thing to grant transparency and inform people what their governments are hiding from them.
