This is outrageous ‼ The #UK is #blocking a Spanish Judge from getting testimony from #Assange - re: the US SPYING on him while at Embassy- to #protect the #US #extradition case from being #thrown out of Court

ILLEGAL
UNCONSCIONABLE
DISGRACEFUL @cpsuk

1/ "The British justice system is blocking a Spanish judge’s request to question Julian Assange in London as a witness in a case exploring allegations that the Spanish security firm Undercover Global S.L. spied on the WikiLeaks founder while he was living in d Ecuadorian embassy"
2/ "The British position, unprecedented in these types of requests for judicial collaboration, is being viewed by Spanish judicial bodies as a show of resistance against the consequences that the case could have on the process to extradite the Australian cyberactivist to the US."

Article 4 of the Extradition Treaty between the UK and the USA states that: "Extradition shall not be granted if the offense for which extradition is requested is a political offense."

So why the hell is #JulianAssange behind bars pending extradition to the US? 1/5
The British govt's treatment of Julian Assange is a grotesque abuse of state power.

The circumstances of his incarceration are tantamount to torture.

The Extradition Treaty clearly doesn't apply in his case because his 'offence' was political, i.e. he exposed US war crimes. 2/5
Yesterday's proceedings at Westminster Magistrates Court for the case management hearing regarding the attempts to extradite #JulianAssange to the US, were both sinister and farcical. The events that unfolded in that courtroom brought our judicial system into disrepute. 3/5

Victory for patriots and for justice. Julian Assange, the whistleblower most feared by the Deep State, and holder of the keys to Seth Rich's murder by Hillary's goons, will be coming before AG William Barr to tell his story and present discovery. #winning foxnews.com/world/wikileak…
And how we knew those who spoke out against this move were compromised. #JulianAssange

Here's a 17 second video of #JulianAssange as he was leaving the courthouse today
Where are my lip readers at? What is Julian Assange saying here? Also, does anyone know Morse code? I'm curious to know if Julian is awkwardly blinking on purpose

1/ Today, I went to a court for the very first time & I’d like to share some thoughts.

Let me start by talking about the courageous, ordinary citizens who protested outside and/or queued from the early hours in the cold & rain to support Julian
#JulianAssange #Assange

2/ In the crowd you could hear people speaking in South American Spanish, German, French, accented English from New Zealand, Australia, the Americas& the Uk, Polish, Greek and more!
3/
Some were supporters who have stood outside the Ecuadorean embassy for years recognising early how Julian was being framed .

Others were those who stand outside Belmarsh today shining a light on the UK govt’s role in torturing the world’s most important political prisoner

2/ That’s what investigative journalists do… What this should have triggered is investigations by the state(s) of the misconduct.

Wikileaks challenges the old order of power in politics and in journalism.

“We are all engaged in a generational struggle for a proposition that citizens have a right and duty to scrutinise the state”
- Julian Assange

Happy 13th Bday @wikileaks

@wikileaks brings forth information from whistleblowers vital to public debate and is a great tool for human rights activists. It was the only organisation willing to publish US military were knowingly shooting civilians seen in “Collateral Murder”video

I learnt that Google and Facebook were collecting our data and selling it advertisers.
“Every time you take a picture and post it to Facebook, you’re being a rat.”
“People who use Google are the product.”

Often as a result of their activism political prisoners are the recipients of awards from around the world as their efforts are recognised by human rights organisations & nations not their own. #JulianAssange is one such prisoner.

THREAD! *open letter*
To the critics, those who question, those who want more information, those that want to help Mr. #JulianAssange & the #transparency movement.

I have seen your questions, DMs and blog posts & since I know criticism is hard to take I will address some issues.
This thread will contain criticism of both my friends and the ones running the operation to save Mr. Assanges life. In both cases it is constructive criticism. Not because I'm so smart, but because I've been around more blocks than you know. Why? Because I dont advertise my work.
First a few direct experience based undeniable truths
- Courage Foundation know they shit
- Wikileaks have weathered more storms than you have seen
- Not all anomalies are born from ineptitude
- We all love transparency but even WL need to keep cards close 2 their vest (cont.)

Pamela Anderson — Black Hat.

Julian Assange was removed from the Embassy, never seen after May 2017 balcony appearance — only cat came to window.

Julian is definitely assisting Q team, if not one of the 10.
Both sides had motive to keep up charade. I believed Pam was helping us, but if that's her, she ain't no white hat.

It also crossed my mind many times that she was trying to gather intel, plant devices for black hats (prior to realizing he was gone). Never trusted her.
Not suggesting you watch this, just linking source for photos of Pamela Anderson at Abramovic's Spirit Cooking event.

Never forget: #JulianAssange, currently in Belmarsh maximum security prison, remains under threat of extradition to the US, where he faces life imprisonment for the "crime" of releasing crucial information withheld by governments from the public.
If Assange is successfully extradited and prosecuted by the US for performing this critical democratic service, journalists and whistleblowers everywhere should feel a chill wind blowing down their necks.
We can state this clearly, and strongly contest his extradition to the US, regardless of what we might think of his character, politics etc, or of the Swedish case. It's a matter of principle. If we don't stand up for his rights, we don't stand up for other people's.

@WLArtForce
This was performed during our rally in #Düsseldorf on August 10 in front of the US consulate.
The starting point of this performance is Plato’s Allegory of the Cave which I adapted to #JulianAssange ‘s and #ChelseaManning ‘s ongoing persecution.
As a reminder: the Allegory relates the story of a group of prisoners who spend their lives chained, unable to turn their head around. There is a fire and people behind them who are holding figures and objects which cast shadows on a wall in front the prisoners.
During their whole live, these prisoners will never ever see the fire or the figures and objects themselves.
They also hear echoes of conversation and sounds but never a true voice or word. That’s what shapes their perception of the world.

Science #Symbolism Comms Thread-
Moon: A defining characteristic of the Moon is its "dark side" forever hidden from public view - and this is one reason in symbolism comms it can represent secrecy.
e.g. Q classified: Those videos are on the "moon" (6) #Qanon #GreatAwakening
When I say "Q classified videos are on the" - it wouldn't be phrased that way, the whole statement would be in symbolism comms (not just the moon)
Note in this one in the article it's found at the The "Moon's" "South Pole-Aitken basin"
I mention the location -because the Ray Chandler Lunar Lander (I mean ChandRayaan)" is exploring that same region - As Q says - it's all out in the open - #SymbolismWillBeTheirDownFall #Qanon
