1. ho investito molto nello scrivere il mio libro "Il Potere Segreto. Perché vogliono distruggere Julian #Assange e #WikiLeak" per una ragione precisa che include,ovviamente Julian #Assange e #WikiLeaks, ma va molto molto molto oltre. E ve la spiego
2. con il caso Julian #Assange e #WikiLeaks è in gioco la libertà di rivelare la criminalità di Stato ai più altri livelli (crimini di guerra, torture) e rimanere liberi e salvi.
3. Se guardiamo indietro,nella Storia,diritti che sono alla base della democrazia, come il suffragio universale, i diritti delle donne,non esistevano. Li abbiamo conquistati con decenni di lotte di persone comuni,intellettuali,politici,artisti,giornalisti

To those who want to see Julian free: please stop suggesting there isn't mainstream support, because there is.

Denying that Julian #Assange has establishment and mainstream support is counterproductive and harmful to him. Our goal must be to make it grow by reinforcing it.
The claim that there is a media 'blackout' simply isn't true. Of course we need more reporting, but the worst thing one can do when the goal is to grow support is to suggest the mainstream is hostile or doesn't care. Instead, show that they ARE calling for his freedom.
Always show support from a position of authority.

@UNHumanRights, @commissionerHR and @OSCE_RFoM back #Assange.

1.oggi vado di frettissima, ma voglio rispondere a @elio_vito che ha scritto: giornalismo è rivelare verità scomode, ma NON segreti, se le informazioni sono segrete un motivo c'è e il segreto protegge vite umane
2. quello che @elio_vito dovrebbe sapere è che praticamente ogni settimana il giornalismo, in particolare quello americano,rivela informazioni coperte da segreto. E giornalisti come Bob Woodward ne hanno fatto il fulcro della loro carriera
3. la rivelazione di segreti riguardanti la sicurezza nazionale non solo è la normalità, ma è il core business di una branca del giornalismo che chiama "national security journalism"

35 days since journalist Craig Murray @cmurrayjustice was locked up alone 22h/day in a prison for serious offenders !
877 days since Julian #Assange was jailed in Belmarsh, 3364 days since he was arbitrarily detained and deprived of freedom & natural sunlight
Some thoughts...
1/
Judicial torture & executions were routinely carried out at Saughton from 1386-1817. Saughton's barbaric history carries through neatly to the present day. Like other prisoners Murray is in his cell alone 22 hours/day. This is #torture & breaches rule 44 of the Mandela rules
2/
Leave alone, the wrongs of jailing a journalist for honest reporting, on the flimsy pretext of jigsaw id, Craig's case, reflects badly on the quality & independence of Scotland's judiciary, because Craig was denied the option to do community service #ScotlandJailsJournalists

1. Rispondo a una domanda al giorno sul mio libro “Il Potere Segreto. Perché vogliono distruggere Julian #Assange e #WikLeaks”.
2. Ha paura di lavorare ai documenti segreti di #WikiLeaks e al caso ? Qualcuno mi ha fatto questa domanda
3. NO, NON ho paura di lavorare ai documenti segreti di #WikiLeaks e al caso. NESSUNO mi farà del male fisico. Ecco perché sento dovere di denunciare quello che hanno fatto a Julian #Assange e ai giornalisti di #WikiLeaks

Per fare un'inchiesta come quella di ieri di #PresaDiretta ci vuole sì coraggio, ma ci vuole anche l'amore per la professione, credere davvero che il dovere dei giornalisti sia quello di mettere a disposizione dell'opinione pubblica la conoscenza dei fatti e la realtà.
1/2
Da molto, troppo tempo invece la maggior parte dei giornalisti italiani non solo non ha più il coraggio ma nemmeno l'amore per la professione, non pensano affatto che il loro dovere sia quello di informare,
2/3
altrimenti non si parlerebbe più degli stati uniti come della nazione maestra di democrazia, dei diritti umani, perfino, davanti alla quale tutto l'occidente si è inchinato per convenienze e opportunismi permettendo che facesse quello che ha sempre fatto:

Questa sera a @Presa_Diretta per la prima volta il servizio pubblico si occuperà della vicenda di #Assange, giornalista pluripremiato nel mondo, detenuto in un carcere di massima sicurezza in UK e sottoposto ad abusi perché ha rivelato al mondo i crimini di guerra occidentali. >
La Rai, che dovrebbe essere il faro e la stella polare dell'informazione da dieci anni sorvola e trascura una vicenda surreale, indegna, dove, al posto dei criminali di guerra, viene processato chi ha denunciato i crimini. >
#Assange rischia 175 anni di carcere ma alla maggior parte del nostro giornalismo questo non interessa, non si preoccupa, non pensa che sia una questione di cui, da più di dieci anni a questa parte, si sarebbe dovuto parlare tutti i giorni.

1. voglio farvi capire 2 cose cruciali: 1. chi mi dice: c'è una ragione per cui un documento è segreto. la ragione é: se pubblicato mette a rischio vite e informazioni cruciali a protezione degli interessi di uno Stato
2. ho passato gli ultimi 11 anni a violare il Segreto di Stato,lavorando ai documenti di #WikiLeaks e #Snowden
3. in 11 anni ho verificato l'autenticità di migliaia di documenti segreti, acquisendo una capacità di verifica che mi è costata un profondo stress, ansia, preoccupazione

A 🧵

1/ Sweden wanted to prolong war in Afghanistan. Along with its NATO buddies it wanted to sell weapons to kill and maim people while allowing Swedish companies to profit off the misery . See link below
2/

Then remember this (weaponising feminism to prolong war) file.wikileaks.org/file/cia-afgha…
3/
The Swedish state stitched up #Assange by denying him due process. British prosecutors in #Starmer’s CPS put pressure on
the Swedish prosecutors to keep things at preliminary investigation stage for 7 years.

1. as the #Afghanistan catastrophe unfolds before our eyes,let's keep in mind that the @WikiLeaks' #AfghanWarLogs remain the ONLY PUBLIC database which allows to reconstruct the #AfghanWar from January 2004 to December 2009.
2. the #WikiLeaks' #AfghanWarLogs not only allow to reconstruct the "visible" part of the #AfghanWar, but also the secret one, by revealing the operations conducted by #drones and secret units such as #TaskForce373
3. in particular, the #WikiLeaks'#AfghanWarLogs is the ONLY database available for trying to reconstruct the civilians deaths before 2007: apparently, NO one has reliable statistics on those deaths

1. abbiamo una sola ed unica fonte pubblica di documenti segreti che raccontano per ben 6 anni la guerra in #Afghanistan fino al 2009: sono i 76mila #AfghanWarLogs di #WikiLeaks. In quei documenti c'è il disastro che oggi vediamo
2. negli #AfghanWarLogs c'è l'assoluta insensatezza della guerra in #Afghanistan:dopo ben 9 anni di *addestramento* delle truppe afghane,USA e NATO NON avevano ottenuto assolutamente nulla, tanto che le truppe afghane si davano ai sequestri di persona,per arrotondare gli stipendi
3. negli #AfghanWarLogs c'è la follia delle unità segrete che combattevano la guerra, come la #TaskForce373,che letteralmente non sapevano chi accidenti ammazzavano, e poiché ammazzavano SISTEMATICAMENTE gente innocente la popolazione afghana era furiosa

Coming up on @RNBreakfast is Barrister Jennifer Robinson @suigenerisjen to speak on the hearing last night on the US appeal against the extradition hearing that #Assange won in January - Listen live: ab.co/2GqJiZo
@RNBreakfast @suigenerisjen Overnight a British court granted US lawyers more grounds to appeal. Quoting @StellaMoris1 "Julian has been denied the love and affection of his family for so long. Julian and the kids will never get this time back."
Jen explains that this was a preliminary hearing. It must be remembered that we won this case in January. The judge found that extraditing #Assange would be oppressive. The US appealed on 5 grounds, which included challenge of the psychiatrist. It shapes the hearing in October

Today, I observed the legal proceedings in the case of #Assange on behalf of @SocialistLawyer

Thanks to those who live-tweeted. (I particularly miss the voice of Craig @cmurrayjustice )

Now a few personal comments about the key points of concern in this historic case 🧵

1/
It is easy to be distracted by the finer points of law & to focus on dancing on the head of a pin. But what are the big issues

a) What shouldn’t be up for debate is that states & corporations that commit grave crimes must be held accountable by the media & judiciary
2/
b) #Assange is in Belmarsh deprived of family, friends and medical care. Meanwhile the war criminals are free because of serious & repeated failings in ensuring any accountability for horrific crimes.

The threats on Julian's life, on the children and Stella were not discussed today - Stella speaks of this now
"These threats are not items of law. These are our lives. We have a right to live. We have a right for this nightmare to come to an end once and for all." #Assange
And now @johnpilger takes the mic. She, their children and Julian have a right for this nightmare to come to an end. This is meant to be the highest court in the land. Where is its humanity? Where is basic justice?

Breaking: The high court has granted the US leave to appeal the decision not to extradite #Assange on two further grounds of appeal. This includes challenging the use of evidence from defence expert Professor Matthew Kopelman over Assange's risk of suicide if extradited.
The High Court overturned a decision by Justice Jonathan Swift to reject 2 out 5 grounds of appeal put forward by the US government #Assange
Lord Justice Holroyde and Justice Farbey found the US had an arguable case that Kopelman did not act in accordance with his duty as an expert witness by omitting to disclose #Assange's relationship with his partner Stela Moris and their two children in his first report.

YES! United States wins a point in its appeal to extradite Julian Assange to face justice! It will now be able to challenge the ludicrous evidence given by a shrink - who concealed that Assange had fathered kids in the Embassy - that he would “kill himself” if extradited
There was going to be a full hearing in October anyway, but this is an important point the United States has won. It was already allowed to appeal on three grounds, and this is a fourth ground on which it can appeal. See you soon, Julian. Russian collaborator for decades.
My article (free), an exclusive on how @jamesrbuk and whitewashing @Guardian hacks ignored Julian #Assange’s extensive trips to and contact with Russia - right before he built @wikileaks with a Russian woman he used “for translating”

This story summarises the main issues that are expected to be raised today.

In 40 mins @ 730 Oz EST I will be live tweeting the High Court hearing in London at which Julian #Assange will appear in person today. He hasn't been seen since he won his case on 4 Jan 2021. The updated provided by @StellaMoris1 provides background crowdjustice.com/case/assangeap…
Stella is providing a statement outside the court right now
For the first time in 17 months, Stella was able to hug Julian yesterday. Julian and his kids will never get this time back. Julian is an innocent man accused of practicing journalism. Stella thanks supporters on behalf of Julian #Assange

Einfach Mal lesen, falls ihr über den Fall Julian #Assange nicht informiert seid.

@TiloJung fragt @NilsMelzer (UN-Sonderberichterstatter) im Interview, ob es juristisch noch eine Möglichkeit gibt, dass Assange freikommt.

Die Antwort macht einen sprachlos... #Thread 1/5
"Juristisch darf er garnicht ausgeliefert werden, sowieso nicht!
...
1, Er wird angeklagt wegen Spionage, Spionage ist das klassische politische Delikt. In jeder Lehrbuch-Variante ist das drin. Und Auslieferung für politische Delikte sind verboten. Also klar, geht garnicht. 2/5
Das 2, ist, auch wenn es nicht so wäre, es ist #Journalismus, das ist gedeckt von der #Pressefreiheit. Ist garnicht strafbar. Das jemand geschädigt wurde, wurde auch garnicht nachgewiesen. Also auch da geht's nicht. 3/5

1. If you read this @JoshuaRozenberg ‘s report, you understand what is deeply wrong about the Julian #Assange extradition case: rozenberg.substack.com/p/assange-in-c…
2.@JoshuaRozenberg writes that the Crown Prosecution Service is NOT “briefing the media”:this is the strategy of having as little and as poor press coverage as possible from the very beginning and these are the authorities which destroyed key documents and keep denying them to me
3. The handling of the Julian #Assange case by the Crown Prosecution Service is so obscure that to this day, I haven’t been provided any info on their destruction of documents on JA despite all my appeals at the UK Tribunals

I’ll be following the UK High Court Appeal by the US

in the case of Julian #Assange

and **live tweeting**

Starts at 10.30am London time on 11 August - in just a few hours.

You can follow this thread, and quite a few others!
It appears this Court has allowed other observers besides journalists, unlike Judge Baraitser who barred human rights groups and parliamentarians form the Extradition hearing.
Amnesty International’s rep has been approved as was the Australian Parliamentary Assange supportgroup
This is not the US Appeal per se.
Tonight’s preliminary hearing
is to appeal the two (of 5) grounds on which the US was denied permission to appeal.

so this is the end game. either they free #assange or they kill him. now's the time to step up - not next week, not after the next election - now. themonthly.com.au/issue/2021/aug…
we're not alone; in fact we have allies everywhere. so here's a question: is your MP a member of the Bring Julian Assange Home Parliamentary Group? drop them a line or an email and ask what they are doing to free #Assange aph.gov.au/Senators_and_M…
here's another one; i tried this and it took two minutes. write to @POTUS and ask why he is prosecuting an australian publisher: whitehouse.gov/get-involved/w…
