This is truly a sad day for Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Information and a Free Press.
Lord Justice Thomas and Mr Justice Ouseley on Wednesday handed down their judgment in the 40-year-old Australian’s appeal against a European arrest warrant issued by Swedish prosecutors after rape and sexual assault accusations made by two Swedish women following his visit to Stockholm in August 2010.
Has the US Government won and will they finally get him to the States for incarceration?
Yes, in all possibility because Sweden is a stooge. Never has one seen such speedy justice (issuance of an arrest warrant for a ‘possible’ rape…it is even faster than for those that wear religious garb and spout hatred and death to infidels!). This arrest warrant is politically motivated.
All those that treasure Free Speech, Freedom of Press, Freedom of information and Civil Rights please stand up for this man, for Wikileaks, and help keep Julian Assange from those that seek revenge for revealing the TRUTH – that governments across the globe are corrupt and devoid of ethics and morals!
Banks, Credit Card companies et all have digressed from standard business practices by illegally blocking funds to Wikileaks and deliberately short circuiting Wikileaks operations…and all this supported by the US Government.
And to think Sweden will give him a fair trial?
And why is Australia not protecting one of its citizens? Has it too become a stooge of international intrigue?
This is truly a sad day for one who has helped change the face of media forever.
Julian Assange, you have many followers all over the world (not hackers) but ordinary citizens who believe that you have revealed the TRUTH and therefore should be protected from powerful vested interests.
I sincerely hope better sense will prevail and Assange is allowed to at least return to his home country…
If the international media does not support Julian Assange now then there will come a time when government will encroach upon Civil Liberties and Freedom of Speech and the MEDIA…but by then it would be too late.
The bitter truth could be that Julian Assange will live out the rest of his life as a resident of Guantanamo Bay…
Julian Assange we wish you well, mate.
