Assange is a hero who showed public opinion a small part of the dirty laundry that the US has in the world..

The process against him is an attack against the freedom of opinion, freedom of press and the search of mankind for freedom..

FREE ASSANGE !!..

The UK government is ever ready to pontificate hypocritically on the lack of press freedom in other countries, but is incapable and unwilling to remove the beam from their own lying eyes, blind to their dastardly state crimes uncovered by Assange's Wikileaks and for which NOBODY has ever been indicted, tried and punished. Assange should be released and compensated for the years of political martyrdom he has suffered, not to forget all the scheming politicians and government officials who have connived in railroading a man who dared to speak truth to power. On bended knee the press have shamefully left him to rot in jail instead of following his example and holding the feet of the guilty ones to the fire while demanding accountability and punishment for them and redress for Assange. Our democracies are withering on the vine in plain sight owing to the cowardly conduct of the "bought and sold" MSM. The vicious, vengeful treatment of Assange is an affront to all people who cherish freedom and who refuse to bow their neck in order not to witness the human rights abuses of the State.

But elsewhere you speak in support of Mr. Xi and Mr. Putin. I don’t think those guys are for those freedoms you mentioned.

Assange appeals to European court over US extradition:

While his whistleblower counterpart Snowden gets a Russian passport, Assange continues to decay in British prison.

No matter how hard he tries to appeal in UK or Europe, it would be in vain.

They only listen to US..

Julian is a criminal and a narcissistic sociopath. He doesn’t have anyone but himself to blame. He’s a coward and a fugitive from Justice.

Good news though, that last part is about to change.

Know any powerful persons in high public office, politicians and "captains of industry" who are any different? Everybody knows: "Justice" in this world means only the poor, weak and powerless go to prison while those that put them there (and their henchmen) always have any amount of get-out-of-jail free cards to keep them safely beyond the reach of punishment. History and the daily news supply us with ample proof of powerful folks who get away with murder, the kind of crimes Assange exposed. It was only to be expected that he would be canceled and gagged for getting up their noses.

Let’s leave the whataboutism to double b, ok?

This is about Julian; a fugitive from justice who’s for radical transparency and accountability for everyone but himself.

He is about to face accountability. That’s a good thing.

@ Nemo

It's not about whataboutery, but about HYPOCRISY! And who are the folks defining "accountability"? Oh, yeah, the usual suspects, the very people responsible for the heinous crimes that Wikileaks exposed, natch.
