dovete capire che se Julian #Assange e #WikiLeak finiranno in prigione negli USA per la pubblicazione dei documenti segreti del governo americano,si aprirà un vulnus gravissimo per la libertà di stampa nelle nostre democrazie occidentali,che manderà segnali precisi a tutto mondo
I've been reading parts of the government's files on #WikiLeaks lately, and if I'm reading them right then FBI has evidence against #Assange that's unrelated to WL's publications, and for which no First Amendment defense exists.
<something, somewhere goes wrong>
Half the people working w/ Julian: "Welp, better go to the FBI."
Pro tip: Go to your lawyer before you go to the FBI.
In 2015 #WikiLeaks published NSA selector lists that include the phone numbers of Angela Merkel’s chancellery, her top officials, aides, chief of staff, even her fax machine. wikileaks.org/nsa-germany/in…
Also in 2015, #WikiLeaks published evidence of NSA spying on German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier along with a list of 20 target selectors for the Foreign Ministry. wikileaks.org/nsa-germany/
ACTA, the "Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement", was ultimately rejected. The agreement was an attempt to create a new global standard for intellectual property rights enforcement. wikileaks.org/wiki/Proposed_…
WikiLeaks released a document during talks at the WTO in Geneva that showed how the EU used threats to "reprogram development aid" if developing countries do not agree to sign a new free trade agreement with the EU. wikileaks.org/wiki/EU_aid_de…
While the media focused on #Assange's cat rather than his continuing arbitrary detention,evidence shows that Britain has worked hard to force his extradition to Sweden where he feared he could then be turned over to US.
There you have a man who is at serious risk of being arrested by UK, extradited to US & prosecuted for his publications.
A man who's been cut off from any human contact, with the exception of his lawyers & whose health is seriously declining due to prolonged confinement.
#Assange told me that when the cat was small, it had in fact made some efforts to escape, but as it has grown it had become so accustomed to confinement that whenever he tried to give the cat to someone else it, so it could enjoy its freedom, it showed fear of wide open spaces.

Western and Chinese companies expose workers in African uranium grab - WikiLeaks released a collection of documents that open up a corrupt multi-billion dollar war by Western and Chinese companies in the Central African Republic (CAR) wikileaks.org/car-mining/
Trident nuclear weapons submariner, Royal Navy Able Seaman William McNeilly, aged 25, stated, "Please make sure this information is released. I don't want to be in prison without anyone knowing the truth," about the detailed nuclear safety problems wikileaks.org/trident-safety/
Shutting down Alex Jones was bad enough but shutting down Gab is silencing ALL the ppl having conversations. This should scare the hell out of everyone. This is the continuation of #Assange and really isn’t surprising. It’s only going to get worse as well.
REAL liberals would be outraged over silencing @getongab btw. Agreeing with the content is irrelevant. A REAL liberal would be freaking out over an entire platform being silenced over the views of a few in free speech. My, how they have changed.
@getongab In the 80’s George Carlin had a bit about “turning the knobs” on a radio show you didn’t agree with. It was directed at conservatives and censorship. Ironic in 2018, it is the conservatives fighting for free speech.
ho ricevuto molti "consigli" di chiudere mia azione legale basata su #FOIA per difendere diritto stampa di accedere a tutti i documenti del caso Julian #Assange e #WikiLeaks. Molti mi hanno "consigliato" di lasciar perdere se non voglio veder distrutta mia professione
#ASSANGE even "tested out the translator to see how his remarks would be translated. He made several statements in English and then declared that the level of translation was insufficient. The judge then decided to suspend the hearing."
#ASSANGE lawyer Carlos Poveda said: "One of his concerns was that if he made a statement, it could be interpreted as a transgression of his special conditions. What a contradiction!"
1. Rispondo a chi mi chiede del “piano russo” per far uscire Julian #Assange dal l’ambasciata dell’Ecuador. NON mi risulta che le cose siano andate come racconta il Guardian.lo dico da giornalista che nel dicembre 2017 fu allertata da #WikiLeaks che JA si stava preparando
2. Wikileaks mi avvertì,ma io non ero sicura di aver capito bene perché nessuno parlava via comunicazioni elettroniche. Io NON detti la notizia su Repubblica perché avevo paura di aver capito male.Chiesi alla direzione di volare subito a Londea
3. Volai subito a Londra, seppi del piano dello status diplomatico. La storia è completamente diversa
1. Vorrei precisare una cosa importante: Julian #Assange NON è antiamericano. È contro gli ABUSI di quello stato nello stato che è il national security state americano, NON è contro “l’America”. Se non si capisce questo, non si capisce NULLA
2. Dopo l’11 settembre, ci sono 2 stati negli USA: quello ufficiale,delle garanzie costituzionali frutto di ideali di libertà, diritti.E un secondo stato:il national security state,quello che ti può far sparire nel cuore della notte,con le sue rendition,i suoi black sites
3. Il national security state non risponde a nessuno, fa un vero baffo alle commissioni parlamentari che indagano sulle torture della Cia: per il national security state il Congresso e tutti i suoi meccanismi di accountability sono un circolo Pickwick
Documents on the secret process used to give #Assange Ecuadorian citizenship will be available soon, and should address allegations of irregularities in the process.
Politicians in Ecuador are moving to strip #Assange of his citizenship. Senior officials have also confirmed his attempted appointment to a diplomatic post in Moscow. And we may still see those documents soon. #InterestingTimes.

📢#RETWEET 📢 (1) hilary Clinton's clearance was ReVoked on Aug. 30, according to letter from State Department to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), which he released. This is common for those under "RICO" Charges to lose ALL Security Clearances #MondayMotivation
#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.
1/ The #Saudi kidnapping of #Khashoggi reminds me of the kidnapping of #Hariri. It is meant to embarrass the other party, this time the gov of #Turkey, and provoke a diplomatic crisis. This is drug Cartel methods. It has no other goal than to assert power over the other.
2/ However, resorting to these methods to assert power in the political and international affairs sphere is always a sign of weakness and a sign of a power in crisis. #SaudiArabia
… moreover, this dumb & counterproductive campaign against #WikiLeaks — for daring to expose widespread, systemic corruption in the #DNC, inc. flagrant campaign finance violations — sets an anti-press precedent when we should be pressing #China on #FreeSpeech & #PressFreedoms.
#WikiLeaks is excellent journalism. It published over 10 million documents with pristine record of accuracy, more classified information than all media combined, exposing human right abuses, government spying and war crimes on a scale that was unprecedented.
But WikiLeaks is much more than just journalism. It is best viewed as an invention of new journalism built on the platform of the Internet. Just like the invention of the printing press, it has radically changed the world and solved many problems.
