1. @RiccardoLuna (che pare segua Twitter con attenzione) firma un articolo su @repubblica sul processo del secolo e chiede “Perché allora non ne parliamo?” Ottima domanda la cui risposta è contenuta nel suo stesso articolo; Luna infatti lo riempie di affermazioni e sottintesi
2. che fanno il gioco della propaganda usata per screditare il fondatore di WikiLeaks. È il classico esempio dei giornalisti che lavorano per i “mainstream” media, non toccano materiale radioattivo e quando lo fanno ImageImageImage
3. devono schierarsi “dalla parte giusta della storia” per far capire a chi di dovere, io non sto dalla parte di Assange, rimango uno di voi, difendo semplicemente un principio. E intanto, come recentemente Noam Chomsky e Alice Walker hanno scritto,

Reminder: WikiLeaks Has Always Been Open To Publishing Leaks On Trump

"It’s also worth reminding the world that WikiLeaks itself has for years been soliciting the same tax information that The New York Times is being praised for exposing." #FreeAssange…
The NYT publishing a report on the president’s tax information revealing that Trump often paid little or no federal income taxes during the period the information covers, that his companies are hemorrhaging money, and that he is responsible for hundreds of millions in debt.
The report also contradicted years of mainstream speculation that Trump’s tax returns would reveal evidence of Russian collusion if made public. Image

#JohnBrennan's #CIA kicked off the entire polarized, partisan divide in our falsifying information to invent phony #Russiagate.
#Trump, like an idiot, overreacted--in an effort to expose phony #Russiagate--he tried to coerce #Assange to reveal his sources, to prove Assange's and his innocence.
#Assange felt it would violate his journalistic integrity to expose his actual sources & refused offer to be "pardoned" by #Trump, in exchange for revealing his sources.

Assange announced it was not Russian govt. & all signs point to murdered #DNC insider, #SethRich was source.

Cassandra Fairbanks main points:

Arthur told me details about #JulianAssange’s impending arrest and charges in Oct. 2018, the same month Grenell worked out the deal.

Arthur does communications work for Grenell.

#AssangeCase #FreeAssange
I told #JulianAssange in person about what I was told in January 2019.

Arthur knew I told him, and confirmed there was a State Department investigation into who leaked me the information.
When I noted only a verbal deal was made not to execute #JulianAssange, he went on a tirade about how he deserves a lethal injection.

Week three, Julian Assange’s US extradition hearing. A new thread.

#FreeAssange 1/
It’s now Day 10 of proceedings at the Old Bailey in London. Campaigns Officer @AustinPatrickC is currently in court monitoring in person for @RSF_inter. I’ll be back in court myself tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s my recap from last week.
Some exciting news: thanks to your support, signatures on @RSF_inter’s #FreeAssange petition have more than doubled since the hearing began. Please keep signing & sharing, and we’ll take the petition back to @10DowningStreet along with @StellaMoris1 when proceedings conclude. 3/

Good morning to you all! Today is day 10 of the #AssangeCase extradition hearing. I was granted to the virtual room by a nice young guy working from his bedroom.
40 political observers who were revoked access by the judge still cannot monitor the hearings.
Professor Grotthoff takes the stand who will be looking at the unredacted classified release of cables.
Grottoff: the encryption was so that no one who did not have access to the date would not be able to open it.

🔴 #CASOASSANGE 🇮🇹 Diretta Live

Tra circa 1 ora (15.00/15.30 ora italiana) riprenderanno le udienze.

Continuerò da qui il LIVE THREAD, che proseguirà anche sul canale Telegram.


🔴 #CASOASSANGE 🇮🇹 Diretta Live

Il giudice rifiuta la richiesta della difesa di consentire a Ellsberg (89 ANNI) di iniziare alle 15:15, (07:15 in California). Dice che deve iniziare alle 2.30pm (6.30am per lui). Il tribunale gli ha inviato il fascicolo di 350 pagine ieri.

Iniziano di nuovo le udienze all'Old Bailey di Londra.
La difesa riceve istruzioni da Julian Assange, mentre si siede sul banco degli imputati (la famosa scatola di vetro) indossando una mascherina bianca.

Good morning from week two of Julian Assange’s US extradition hearing at the Old Bailey in London! Will share this week’s observations in this new thread.

#FreeAssange 1/
I’m not at court this morning, but have a colleague holding my place so I can hopefully monitor this afternoon’s sitting. He was told 3 of the 5 public gallery places are still being held for these mysterious no-show “VIPs”, meaning only 2 are currently occupied. Ridiculous. 2/
After last week’s Covid scare, witness testimony has resumed with Eric Lewis testifying this morning. Would love to be able to watch remotely, but @RSF_inter & all other NGOs had their access to the video link revoked last week. Back later - hopefully having gotten into court! 3/

I am connected to the virtual court system and ready to report on the #AssangeCase extradition hearing, first day of week 2:

Thread: Image
Reminder, there are 40 civil society, human rights and political observers from around the world that were given access via video link and the access was revoked the last minute. They include @amnesty, @RSF_inter, @hrw, European Ministers of Parliament, and legal observers.
Court commences, but #JulianAssange is not present. They are discussing administrative issues.

The gap in how Assange is thought of by the global left (especially the global South grateful he exposed these crimes) and US liberals is so vast:

"Assange should be treated like a hero for denouncing the US State Department scams to the world. #FreeAssange" - LULA.

"All democratic countries should cry out for his freedom" --

@LulaOficial on Julian Assange, today. 🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷
Also note: when Lula -- declared by Obama to be the world's most successful leader -- want to praise Assange & denounce his prosecution, he spoke with RT, because the pathological McCarthyite obsession with Russia doesn't exist in rational countries:

I was a research assistant at an oral history center, when my boss showed us the 2007 video, "Collateral Murder." Apache helicopter pilots radio a second chopper, "Crazy Horse One-Eight," before gunning down six Iraqis. "Look at those dead bastards," one says.
I had long opposed the Iraq war. The idea that Indigenous names, Crazy Horse and the Apache people, those who had died fighting US imperialism, however, had become military codewords in the bloody massacre of Iraqi civilians made me throw up. It is the never-ending Indian war.
Later, I read the WikiLeaks US embassy cables, showcasing the zeal with which the US imperialism destroys nations and movements it sees as threats, literally holding back the rest of the world from advancing any social alternative to the world-destroying machine of capitalism.

Waiting outside the public gallery entrance with activists @deepa_driver and Moritz Müller, who have been queuing since the early hours to gain access. So grateful for @rubio49158845, who kindly gave me his seat again 🙏 2/ Image
We *should* be getting in this morning, but have been told the public won’t be admitted until 11:30 - we’re not sure why. Only three of us will be allowed into the public gallery, which means they’re still saving spaces for the mysterious “VIPs” who have still yet to show up. 3/

On the way back to the Old Bailey this morning to try again to monitor the US extradition hearing in the case of @wikileaks publisher Julian Assange. The court has severely restricted NGO access, so it is very uncertain whether my @RSF_inter colleague @cmihr & I will get in. 1/
The court has refused to recognise or accommodate the role of professional NGO observers, so we are left to compete for spaces in the public gallery, which has been limited to 2 to 5 people, despite the fact that there are 36 seats in that part of the overflow courtroom alone. 2/
On day 1, we finally got in due to the intervention of the German embassy & political observers. On day 2, I was able to monitor the afternoon session thanks to the kindness of an activist who had queued for hours & gave me his seat so we could tell the world what’s happening. 3/

Ahead of the start of the hearing, RSF along with @StellaMoris1, attempted to deliver the petition at 10 Downing Street calling for the #UK authorities not to extradite #Assange to the #US. Unfortunately, 10 Downing Street refused to accept it.
As his extradition hearing resumes, we call yet again for Julian Assange to be immediately released, the charges against him dropped, and for him to not be extradited to the #UnitedStates.

We fully believe the case against him is connected to his contributions to public interest reporting, and his prosecution has extremely worrying implications for press freedom and the protection of journalistic sources internationally.
