The late Rolling Stone journalist Michael Hastings did one of the best interviews with Assange-the proof is it is highly relevant once again, six years after Hasting's death.

A must-read for everyone covering Assange and Wikileaks.

The fact that this received so few ‘likes’ is why I’ve almost given up hope on society.
There is nothing but logic calling for the CRITICAL support for Assange.
Assange stands up for all of us against the evil running society.
