@vonderleyen Thread: As a Commonwealth citizen, Australian journalist Julian #Assange entered the European Union, where he currently lives, lawfully, and it is therefore perfectly lawful for him to stay on EU territory. He currently has two nationalities, Australian and Ecuadorean, [1/n]
@vonderleyen although his Ecuadorean citizenship is suspended at the moment. He thus legitimately enjoys the same rights as any Commonwealth or Ecuadorean citizen who has lawfully entered and is staying in the EU. [2/n]
@vonderleyen 1. Is Mr #Assange covered and protected by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, and specifically Article 11 thereof? [3/n]

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.

US authorities' political prosecution ploy concerning Julian #Assange is an ethically bankrupt attempt at retribution for his role in exposing the darkest crevices of the US national security state, including the CIA's highly intrusive hacking arsenal. @BorisJohnson @patel4witham
Britain is languishing in a domestic political crisis, and US authorities know this. But will the UK govt forfeit its dignity at the alter of human rights by handing over a public interest journalist to a US criminal justice system blighted by torture? @DefendAssange @wikileaks
A journalist who has already endured aggravated and prolonged punishment-by-process, and grave human rights violations, at the hands of UK and other state actors, and who is very vulnerable, detained in the hospital wing of a max security jail in London? @wikileaks @DefendAssange

The Prosecution of Julian Assange Affects Us All… #FreeAssange
1. Julian Assange, who has become a political prisoner in the US government's war on the free press, was charged under the Espionage Act over publications exposing the US illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. #FreeAssange
2. The legal battle of this persecuted journalist is a matter of life or death. On US soil, where Assange would have no chance of receiving a fair trial, the Attorney General, William Barr, recently called to resume executions for federal crimes after a 16-year pause.#FreeAssange

THREAD! Nick Davies @guardian describe his work w #Assange re #AfghanWarLogs July 2011

⏭ to 33:43 - Davies says HE RAISED the issue of the problem of having informants names published, as could get killed! And that all 3 News agencies were very troubled

At 34:04 Nick Davies says:
"He (Assange) said: "If an #Afghan civilian #helps the #Coalition Forces then he #deserves to #die!"
It's a moral issue"! 😡 ⤵️

While Mark Davis a #witness SHOWS #Assange as #only 1 caring 4 informants ⤵️
John Goetz @DerSPIEGEL signed written statement he was at dinner & #Assange never said "Informants deserved to die"
Both David Leigh & Nick Davies (@Guardian) #LIED 2 Cover up

Marc Curtis & John Goetz are #WITNESSES & claim the contrary Assange never said so at dinner or bunker

Aaaand @suigenerisjen is in Australlian Parliament House this morning, briefing on the complex legal situation of Julian #Assange being warmly welcomed by cosponsors Susan Templeman MP and Senator Peter Whish-Wilson.
@suigenerisjen Jen Robinson has been working with #Assange since 2010 and is briefing parliamentarians, breaking down some of the key legal issues involved. Her purpose in being here today is to bring people up to speed and to highlight what Australians need to know about his case.
@suigenerisjen The very outcome we had warned about for more than 9 years, occurred the very day he was removed from the Ecuadorian, the US requested Julian's extradition for the 2010 publications, done in partnership with many media orgs, The Guardian, Der Spiegel etc.

Disgusting misogyny in defence of #Assange by Nils Melzer. @UN need to answer why they employ this woman-hating sexist who says it doesn’t matter if Assange lies about using a condom. UK courts determined this is rape. Consent to sex with a condom is not consent to sex without it
Nils Melzer’s letter to the UK is full of pro-Russian lies about Assange. The worst is that he calls his Swedish accusers liars and says that they “consented to sex” even if Assange deliberately ripped his condom when safe sex was a condition. Nils and @UN #UNsrt: respect women
The misogyny of Julian Assange, rapist and spy, is to be expected. Women should not have to endure it from @NilsMelzer and @UN. I hope @patel4witham will ask the UN to fire Melzer. And it’s “Her Majesty’s Government”, Mr. Melzer. Can’t even get basic diplomacy right. Sexist.

Julian Assange was assessed under the Istanbul protocol. “Several aspects of Mr Assange’s health condition & cognitive & sensory capacity have been...significantly impaired”… #torture #HumanRights
This is due to Julian Assange’s long term confinement in the Ecuadorean embassy, without access to natural light, & adequate medical and dental care… #torture #HumanRights #auspol
From a psychological perspective, Mr Assange showed all symptoms typical for prolonged & sustained exposure to severe psychological stress, anxiety, & related mental and emotional suffering… #torture #HumanRights

#Mueller's already dealt fatal blows to Trump & GOP propagandists. He said 1) he didn’t indict b/c of OLC memo, 2) "no collusion no obstruction, total exoneration" is false, & 3) he won't address "origins" of the probe or Steele dossier b/c they’re under review. #MuellerHearing
@RepJerryNadler @HouseJudiciary 🤯🙄A Republican Sensenbrenner actually asked #Mueller this question: If you knew from the outset that your office wasn't going to indict the president (b/c OLC guideline prevented it), why even investigate him?
#MuellerHearings #MuellerHearing
@RepJerryNadler @HouseJudiciary #Mueller is calm but not exactly poker-faced. He just gave a disgusted sneer at crazy Louis Gohmert shouting that Trump "wasn't obstructing justice, he was pursuing justice because he's INNOCENT"! Even the gallery laughed. #MuellerHearings #MuellerHearing

1. what is wrong about this #US report by @CRS4Congress on Julian #Assange?… i) it refers to #Swedish charges, though to this day there are NO charges at all
2. every journalist worth his/her salt knows the difference between an individual under investigation (allegations) and an individual who is supposed to stand trial (charges): to this day, the Swedish prosecutors have NOT decided whether to charge #Assange for rape (minor rape)
3. is it credible that the @crs4research does NOT know the difference between *allegations* and *charges*, considering the 1000s of press reports on the Julian #Assange Swedish case ?

Fast and furious had another accident? Remember that time they Killed Paul Walker & his associate (a charity for water) during the filming? He was about to fight and expose the trafficking via humanitarian orgs. They were original pedogate fighters. It was a Hollywood HANDLING.
