Le e-mail di Hillary Clinton pubblicate da #WikiLeaks hanno rivelato che la #NATO ha ucciso Gheddafi non solo per rubare il petrolio libico, ma anche per impedire l'indipendenza economica dei Paesi africani.

Almeno un terzo di queste e-mail proveniva dal suo stretto confidente Sidney Blumenthal, l'avvocato che difese il marito nel caso Monica Lewinsky.

In una di queste e-mail, datata 2 aprile 2011, si leggeva in parte come segue:
Il governo di Gheddafi detiene 143T d'oro e altrettante d'argento, risorse con le quali intendeva creare una moneta panafricana basata sul dinaro libico d'oro. Questo piano 猫 stato concepito per fornire ai Paesi africani francofoni un'alternativa al franco francese (CFA).

@gvenugopalan Sir Did I tell you about that time Julian Assange published US State Dept Cables which revealed the US gov working for Pfizer? Pfizer was sued in Nigeria for experimenting on kids & killing them during so-called pandemic of Meningitis in order to make bank on their shiny new drug
@gvenugopalan Nigerian Attorney General sued Pfizer for 7 BILLION Dollars. US State Dept Cables revealed that Pfizer employed thugs to dig up dirt on this Attorney General which the US State Dept then used to blackmail him to reduce the compensation from 7 BILLION DOLLARS to 70 MILLION DOLLARS
@gvenugopalan What the extradition of Julian Assange means is: if ANY of us say anything which the US finds "embarrassing"鈥攚hich includes saying anything about their global corporate cartel鈥& if it affects their bottom line, then they could come after us. This must be stopped. #FreeAssangeNOW

1/@JulianHillMP's excellent speech urging ScoMo to #FreeJulianAssange

The assessment of expert team of The UN Special Rapporteur on TORTURE concluded that Assange has been subjected to PROLONGED PSYCHOLOGICAL TORTURE

@Albo must DEMAND UK & US to #FreeAssangeNOW #DropAllCharges
#Assange has been PERSECUTED for exposing WarCrimes & misuse of StatePower. Those who committed WarCrimes have never been prosecuted. What Assange published is NO DIFFERENT IN PRINCIPLE to 1971 PENTAGON PAPERS which exposed truth about Vietnam War & the actions of 2 US Presidents

A small boy clutches tiny white flowers
Picked beside prison walls
thrust hastily into jean pockets

a yellow centre
surrounded by white petals
extending outwards
like a sun of truth

#FreeAssangeNOW #Assange #Poetry #Poem
Many years ago
shortly after creating an ingenious technology
to speed up the dissemination of truth
and end wars
his father spoke of a sun of truth
as a guiding beacon for civilisation

#FreeAssangeNOW #Assange #Poetry #Poem
The small boy passes through
prison gates
silent corridors
the frame of a metal detector
stern faces in uniform.

Large hands
check small pockets
the daisies are confiscated
sheepishly and awkwardly
another act of compliance

1/3 We were very fortunate to have an interview with Daniel Ellsberg at his home in California this morning! It was in incredibly inspiring experience talking to this legendary whilstleblower, peace activists, author and luminary!

2/5 Daniel and Julian are good friends. Daniel testified at the Extradition hearing for Assange in 2020. He told the court that that they shared the same aspirations, to shine a light on the 鈥済reat lack of transparency鈥 in decision-making circles in the U.S.
3/5 Like Assange, Ellsberg faced the prospect of decades, at least, in prison for releasing the Pentagon Papers.

1/5 Now more than ever, our right to speak our mind, question authorities and have dissenting views is being diminished.
Now more than ever, we must stop acquiescing to the empire.

2/5 Now more than ever, we must stop comprising our values and integrity to advance our careers.
Now more than ever we must have integrity and hold fiercely to our core values.
3/5 Now more than ever, we must see through the illusions
Now more than ever, we must get off the fence.
Now more than ever, we must see through the illusions of violent wars on innocent people under the guise of protecting democracy.

2/3 Now more than ever, we must stand for peace, truth and justice.
Now more than ever, there is a father, a husband, a journalist and publisher who needs our help.
Now more than ever, we must think of future generations.
3/3 Now more than ever,
We must say something,
And we must do something.

The Assange case is ultimately about whether we have the right to know what the institution we call our government is doing. It鈥檚 a case about democracy, transparency and accountability. The US knows that if ordinary Americans were fully aware, it would threaten the whole system.
It鈥檚 a system whose name has been repeated so often that it鈥檚 become boring to us: the military-industrial complex. Eisenhower knew whereof he spoke, and he understood the spiritual aspect of the military-industrial complex鈥檚 malign influence on civic life. For a free, democratic
鈥ociety to be possible, we have to be able to see what our government is doing. That鈥檚 what the Assange case means, the right for the truth to be known鈥攏ot sucked into the memory hole, so that nothing ever changes. #FreeAssangeNOW #FreeJulianAssange #FreeAssange #AntiWar

C'猫 un barlume di speranza per il fondatore di WikiLeaks , tuttavia, legato al risultato delle elezioni australiane dello scorso fine settimana. La vittoria di Antonio Albanese, sostenitore del giornalista, ha riacceso gli appelli per fermare l'estradizione.
Albanese ha detto che, sebbene non simpatizzasse con Assange per alcune delle sue azioni, non vedeva alcuno scopo nel tenerlo in prigione...
...In definitiva, non credo che Albo voglia diventare un altro primo ministro australiano complice della persecuzione di Julian e, pi霉 in
generale, della discesa occidentale nella barbarie che si 猫 verificata dall'invasione dell'Iraq", ha detto. "Se ha il potere di resistere, dipende da noi"....
