Free Julian Assange!

As corporate puppet Bushbamney co-opts to kill Occupy Wall Street at home, the global elite's go-to girl sets sights on sealing Wikileaks founder's fate abroad.


On Saturday May 26 Sweden's Minister of Foreign Affairs Carl Bildt tweeted the following:

"We will warmly welcome Secretary Clinton to Stockholm next Sunday. First bilateral visit to Sweden by a US SecState for a very long time."


The timing is telling, as one day earlier WL Central reported the following:

"The UK Supreme Court will decide whether or not Julian Assange is to be extradited to Sweden on May 30, at 9:15AM. The proceedings will be open to the public and will also be live-streamed via the Sky website. The judgment is expected to last around 10 minutes."



"If the court rules to extradite Mr Assange, he will be sent to Sweden within 10 days. He can appeal further to the European Court of Human Rights, though this will not stop his extradition. Julian Assange has not been charged with any crime in any country, yet he will have spent 540 days detained - 10 in solitary confinement, and 530 under house arrest - by the time the verdict is handed down. Sweden is trying to extradite him for the purpose of questioning, but they have refused all offers to question him via telephone or video call, despite it being a completely legal method under Swedish law. If extradited to Sweden, Mr Assange will be immediately placed in prison, incommunicado. He will be held in solitary confinement, which the UN Rapporteur on Torture stated amounts to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment in excess of 15 days. Since Sweden does not have a bail system, he will be held for an indefinite period of time. If charged, the following trial would be held in secret."

"Julian Assange also faces the risk of being further extradited to the United States. Sweden has a "temporary surrender" mechanism in their extradition treaty with the U.S. which sidesteps traditional extradition safeguards. Sweden has not refused an extradition request by the U.S. since 2000. It must be noted that Mr Assange is still at risk for U.S. extradition even if he is not sent to Sweden. Emails from the intelligence company Stratfor revealed that the U.S. has a sealed indictment against Julian Assange, and a secret grand jury on WikiLeaks has been active in the U.S. since September 2010. Both the UK and Sweden have refused to guarantee they will not extradite him to the U.S."



"Christine Assange [@AssangeC], mother of WikiLeaks founder and Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange, has spent many long months reaching out to supporters and urging them to contact their local political representatives. Recognising that many politicians still do not know the true story behind WikiLeaks and her son's legal battles, she asks supporters to give them the facts and request their assistance." Here are her 91 talking points:


Protests and rallies in support of Julian Assange [#Rally4JA] are scheduled worldwide this week. Date, time and location information plus downloadable graphics from @somersetbean are available here:

We'll see what happens. It seems amazing that the U.K. is going along with this charade.

Assange Episode 7: Occupy, the movement to fight a global ‘enemy’

The Occupy movement has united hundreds of thousands across the world to fight social and economic inequality. Julian Assange meets with prominent Occupy activists who say their collective efforts target global institutions.

­The stand-off between large financial institutions and those who call themselves the 99% was brought about by the financial crisis, which revealed serious gaps in the current system, David Graeber from Occupy New York explained, pointing out that “the revolt is always in the name of democracy.”

“There is the first really effective planetary bureaucracy which is created in the name of the sort of 'free-market' ideology, which is supposed to stand against it, bureaucracy, but in fact exactly the opposite,” he says.

Aaron Peters from Occupy London adds that social movements are “always born out of grievance” and what is happening now would be impossible without the global financial crisis.

Activists say the movement has come about at the right moment, when there is an immediate necessity to unite to stand for the economic and social rights of the majority.

“There’s a feeling out there that the enemy is becoming increasingly globalized, and the only way it can be challenged is by global movements,” Graeber said.

Although it is economic and social inequality that are named as the main causes behind Occupy, Alexa O'Brien from Occupy in New York and US Day of Rage says it is not just about the global financial crisis but also about a global political crisis – because “institutions are no longer functional.”

Peters agreed, saying that political failure is a global phenomenon.

“We now recognize that public policy outcomes aren't happening at the national level, and that policy makers aren't actually the ones who are in national parliaments. They are elsewhere, and the ones that are dictating policy aren't any way accountable, or, you know, they are not democratic representatives,” he said.

Although Occupy came into being in the United States, the activists are certain that the preconditions of the movement can be traced back to the Arab Spring and to turbulence in Europe.

“There has been a sort of global movement that started in Tunisia and swept across the Mediterranean: Greece, Spain. So it’s really the same movement that hit America,” Graeber declared.

Activists also emphasized the collective nature of the international protest, saying that the movement was born out of the solidarity and cooperative efforts of many enthusiasts across the world with people from Spain, Egypt and other countries flying to the US to take part in Occupy Wall Street.
