"WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange appeared before a magistrates’court in London Friday,saying his life was“effectively at stake”if the UK honors an extradition request from the #USA,where he faces 17 counts of violating the Espionage Act."

"A friend of Assange’s, Ola Bini, is still in prison in Ecuador, after being arrested April 11, the same day Assange was forcibly taken by UK authorities from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, & has been jailed ever since without charges."
"Taking what appears to be a ‘tough stance’ on award-winning journalist Assange, it should also be noted that Javid is also running for the Tory leadership, where MPs also voted on the next Prime Minister today."

Julian Assange Indictment “Criminalizes the News Gathering Process,” Says Pentagon Papers Lawyer
"Kevin Gosztola studied and analyzed the 17 superseding indictments brought against Julian Assange on May 23. He argues that a familiar contrived, conspiracy narrative and timeline underpin the Dept. of Justice charges."
“Here [in Assange’s case] we are not speaking of prosecution but of persecution. That means that judicial power, institutions and proceedings are being deliberately abused for ulterior motives.” — Nils Melzer, UN Rapporteur on Torture
