The arrest of #ASSANGE as it happened Dec 7 2010!

He spent a week in solitary confinement in Wandsworth prison!

He spent 2 years under house arrest!

He has spent over 6 years in the London embassy of Ecuador!


Look at all these LINKS!

The @guardian has made a fortune from @wikileaks and yet they continue to frame Julian #ASSANGE with front page #FAKENEWS!…

EIC @kathviner must resign! #BoycottTheGuardian

21m15s - 'officially' go live.

@CiaronOReilly starts describing the scene outside the Ecuadorian Embassy London, where they are guarding Julian Assange, inside.

"It's Saturday night & we're next to Harrods so the co-option of..."

5. #Wikibees #20 🐝


For 6 years, Julian Assange has been experiencing sensory deprivation inside the Embassy.

"No sense of hot or cold, not seeing more than five meters."

Unsurprisingly, he has developed physical health problems.

@CiaronOReilly is bristling at the Guardian's attacks on Julian Assange.

"They present him as elitist & aloof, and he's not."

"My personal experience.. is he has a great self-depreciating sense of humor and he's a compassionate man."

@wikileaks I’m glad NYT called out the Guardian story as bunk, but this one has so many lies.

“Not only had Mr. Assange not been charged at the time of Mr. Manafort’s trip ...”

WRONG! JA’s indictment is sealed. Most evidence suggests it is from 2010-11 regarding the Manning trial. 1/?
@wikileaks NYT, you need new fact checkers.

There is NO EVIDENCE for this statement:

“... about the role that Mr. Assange and WikiLeaks played in facilitating the Russian effort to help Mr. Trump in the 2016 presidential electio ...”. 2/?
@wikileaks AUTHORS of this bunk?

“...secretly pursued a plan to provide him a diplomatic post in Russia as a way to free him from confinement in the embassy in London.”

Include Dan Collyns & Luke Harding, the discredited authors of the Guardian story YOU ARE DISCOUNTING HERE. 3/?

Watch Julian discuss the book The Wikileaks Files. It shows how there’s been little change between Bush & Obama. It reveals from files dated back to 2006 that it was never a humanitarian crisis. It has always been a regime change. #Unity4J
The Wikileaks Files shows how U.S. tried to get Brazil to join us in undermining Venezuela. They show how “the free market” comes into play with the U.S. acting as a sales agent, as well as, enacting sanctions when countries don’t adopt corporation friendly policy. #Unity4J
The U.S. Empire is a modern Empire. It functions through the 1,400 U.S. bases in over 200 countries and thru trade. These entities wield power for U.S. companies, not average Americans. American interest + what benefits the 1% #Unity4J

#TheGuardian’s article seeks to deflect from the reality that the prosecution of #Assange will focus on @xychelsea-era releases and #Vault7, not the DNC or Podesta emails.

As noted previously by @DisobedientNews:…
On timing: Assange legal representative Hanna Jonasson (@AssangeLegal) quickly noted that the smear was published just hours before the EDVA ruling:

Prosecution of Julian #Assange, America’s Betrayal of Its Own Ideals… Thanks @greekemmy for your help in finalizing this article! #WikiLeaks #Unity4J
Now that the sealed indictment is out in the open, the public is given an opportunity to see the true nature of his plight for freedom. What is now being revealed is the war on the First Amendment waged by the US government, targeting the Western journalist. #WikiLeaks #Assange
This attack on #WikiLeaks is an escalation of Obama’s war on truthtellers. While Obama was relentlessly prosecuted whistleblowers more than all other previous administrations combined, corporate media effectively kept the battlefield out of public sight.

Thread: I discovered today what appears to be the name of someone VERY close to me written on the wall of my building's elevator in what appears to be (but may or not be) blood.
There have been workmen in and out of my building for the last two days doing repairs. I have no way to confirm (yet) how the above occurred. I can say it's not the first time those closest to me have been threatened in the course of #Unity4J. Background:
All I can do when these things happen is to tell people that they have. It's important light is shone on it.

I am not suicidal, I don't drink or do drugs. I am just an activist and a journalist who cares.

Do not be scared: I am not. Just be aware.

Some (near-sighted) people fantasise that I want everyone to join #Unity4J and get upset if they don't. This is the opposite of reality.

I would LOVE IT if people would set up competing organisations to try to free Julian. Love it, love it, love it.

Below are the reasons why:
1. Those persecuting Julian have decades of (or hundreds of years) experience at subverting human progress. Particularly, by infiltrating, destabilising, smearing and attacking activism groups.

The more groups working to free Julian, the harder it is for them to do that!!
2. The more different locations that actions are taking place the better. The more different types of actions taking place the better. The better for Julian, and the harder for the bad guys to keep a handle on. We need to stretch their spying & destroying resources to the maximum

@ResistDarkness @RogueMockingjay KL maybe you should write up what’s going on with him. That may help expose Ecuador’s complicit nature. Love ya, Julian.

THREAD: Thank you so much to all the people sending me kind messages of appreciation and support after seeing my recent appearances with @jimmy_dore, where we talked about Julian Assange, #Unity4J, WikiLeaks, #DecipherYou & Snowden.

Posting the vids & some other key work below:
Here's my first segment with Jimmy: we discussed my and the amazing @ElizabethleaVos' top 10 findings from our #DecipherYou series studying the Edward Snowden files live online. Really appreciate all the people sharing this content. You can watch it here:
In my second segment with Jimmy: we talked about how @JulianAssange saved Edward Snowden's life & discuss the founding of the #Unity4J movement to free Julian & support @wikileaks: a movement supported by over 70 top whistleblowers, journos & truth tellers

"How can we view the ongoing silence from within the confines of the Ecuadorian embassy as anything other than a political, enforced disappearance in the middle of a so-called free, liberal society?"

#Unity4J #ReconnectJulian #FreeAssange #Auspol…
Although #Assange is isolated by the Ecuadorian government, it is overwhelmingly clear that as per the definition, #Ecuador is "acquiescing" to the desire of the US & UK governments.

To the tune of $500 million.

ONLY people power can reverse this

I call on everyone who cares about Julian to stop looking at each other and keep your gaze & actions fixated upon the powers threatening his life

It doesn't matter under which banner you protest, but PROTEST


Historically, @MashiRafael's observations about Julian's situation have been prescient - he has repeatedly warned us of developments before they came to pass.

His warnings need to be heeded.

There is another @Unity4J vigil this coming Saturday and a #Unity4JDay worldwide day of protest action this Sunday

You are welcome to join us - but I reiterate: it does not matter which campaign to free Julian that you contribute to - what matters is that you take urgent action!

Statement: recent public smearing of me is just the visible layer of a coordinated effort to prevent me being able to work full throttle on #Unity4J as I was. There is multi-pronged interference in my life to stop me from having the required supports & resources to do what I do
This will be unsurprising to anyone who has ever done any significant organising. It's par for the course in this day and age, but just amped to the extreme by my own exile/circumstances and the fact that the person I'm trying to support/save is a known CIA target+++.
Donations help, though crypto is the only way I can receive funds (still) despite multiple efforts to try to get new funding channels none have yet come to pass. If you are confident using crypto, my donation addresses are at

But its not all about money

This pathetic hack attacked #WikiLeaks and #Assange with smears and lies, now he loudly complains that nobody will return his calls. LMFAO. Put someone decent on the beat, @AP. #FreeASSANGE
A-a-a-and now we know why this pathetic @AP hack is so desperate for "content". He has new smears to publish! #FreeASSANGE #Unity4J
AP claim they have "tens of thousands of files". But they are leading with Israel Samir asking the Russian embassy to give @JulianAssange asylum in 2010? It's well known @wikileaks was trying every option at the time. As Kristinn Hrafnsson says, that's “rather uninteresting.”

Lessons learned for Amnesty's statement. AI, which is HQ'd in UK had been bizarrely silent compared to rivals @HRW, etc Supporters made many complaints and moved to protest at regional offices e.g Australia. Bolder new Amnesty leadership @kuminaidoo appointed August 1.
Since March 31 Assange's legal team had made an explicit effort to encourage supporters to make 'human rights'' groups (specifically Amnesty) live up to their claimed principles (rather than their government funding). Many did, including #Unity4J.
A change in leadership can further open the window to a change in policy but the pressure must be there. Note that Amnesty's statement, while very welcome, was quietly slipped out on a Friday shortly after supporters moved to picket its offices.

Opinion: The Death Of Hope And Why It Is Crucial For An American Awakening…
"The death of hope can push us into a very dark place, but that darkness is the birth canal of real change."
"For some people, hope came in the form of a red hat, with stenciled letters embracing their foreheads promising to Make America Great Again. My hopes were pinned instead on #BernieSanders."

Although Mr Assange's conditions were already harsh, having no sunlight or outdoor exercise since June 2012, his situation has gotten worse since Mar 27 when the Ecuadorian govt imposed conditions that are like indefinite confinement.

~Mairead Maguire~
These matters of removal of basic rights of speech, information,liberty, persecution & silencing of journalists etc are of fundamental importance to all of us who believe in free & democratic society.

Australian Government Can Save Julian Assange

(OpEd by famous Australian QC, Julian Burnside,on @JulianAssange crisis)…


#Assange #SafePassage #NoExpulsion #NoExtradition #Unity4J #auspol #ecuador #humanrights
"Julian Assange is an Australian. He is in trouble overseas. He needs the Australian government's help."

"The American have made it clear that they want to get Assange, who has good reason to fear that he will be mistreated the way Chelsea Manning was."

~Julian Burnside~
"#Assange has not seen sunshine or felt rain for 6 years.

His health has deteriorated badly.

His teeth are causing great pain: a dentist can't visit him. He needs root canal surgery,which is not possible except in a fully equipped dental surgery."

#TheResistance version of #Freepress:*Subject to terms and conditions, some restrictions may apply.

[Publish Hillary's own words, proof of corruption or US war crimes, and we will call for your death].…
That ^ article was written when Assange could at least defend himself on Twitter by compiling said death threats, calling out the lies etc.
Now, the smarmy cowards are getting away with it.

They don't want #freepress, they want freedom from criticism.
Which, surprise, is the utter opposite of freedom of the press and speech.
