1. today,I'm able to watch and cover the Julian #Assange hearing again. The videolink access has been made available to me last afternoon,after the US counsel agreed my witness statement will be read with no need for cross-examination. Though I'm a witness of fact,I can cover it

5. Mark Summers( JA defence) now starts reading another witness statement: UK investigative journalist @IanCobain, formerly at Guardian, he investigated UK role in extraordinary renditions and torture
6. #IanCobain’s witness statement highlights how difficult if not impossible to acquire evidence of state crimes like extraordinary renditions and other serious abuses and the importance of documentary evidence on such state criminality
7. #IanCobain’s witness statement let surface physical threats and threat of prosecution for revealing state criminality, but no one questioned his accuracy in exposing it
8. Mark Summers now read my ( @smaurizi) witness statement
9. Mark Summers reads how I started working as a media partner of #WikiLeaks in 2009, before #CollateralMurder
10. Mark Summers reads my witness statement(@SMaurizi) detailing how I met Julian #Assange in Berlin the 27 and 28 Sept 2010 to work on #AfghanWarLogs. Please note: it was the LAST time I met Julian #Assange as a free man:
It was 10 YEARS ago
11. Mark Summers reads my witness statement reconstructing the extraordinary rendition of the Milan cleric #AbuOmar in the middle of the day in Milan: Italy is the ONLY country which convicted 26 US citizens, almost all of them #CIA agents.
12. Mark Summers reads my witness statement reconstructing how the #WikiLeaks cables provide indisputable evidence of US pressures to grant 26 US nationals( almost all of them CIA agents) total impunity which resulted in Italy being condemned by the European Court of Human Rights
13. Mark Summers reads my witness statement detailing security measures to protect #WikiLeaks documents:
Encryption, air gapped computers,computer never left unattended. I can now reveal: keeping computers never unattended so difficult that I considered to buy CLASS 6 recipients
14. Summers explains how I was a witness of what happened at Ellingham Hall,August 2010, day after Freitag had revealed that both the database of encrypted cables and password were available on the public domain. 10Years later, I remember every detail, Laura Poitras cooked for us
15. after Cryptome published full set of unencrypted cables (1st Sept 2010), WikiLeaks published cables(2nd Sept2010),I contacted @schneierblog:he told me the @guardian made the Worst mistake, without Leigh and Harding publishing password, NO one could have decrypted cables
16. Now new witness statement: Robert Boyle on serious abuses of #GrandJury proceedings
17. BTW just want to clarify that after being granted access to the 4,189 cables about Italy and the Vatican, WikiLeaks gave me access to the full database of 251,287 cables: security procedures were STILL very strict.
18. Robert Boyle on how #GrandJury has been used to crush political dissent and activism
19. Boyle reconstructing the hell #ChelseaManning went through to force her to testify before the #GrandJury. She is a real hero of mine

24. Witness statement by anonymous witness ( Former UC Global employee) reconstruct how UC Global targeted Andy Mueller Maguhn and the Ecuadorean diplomats dealing with providing JA an Ecuadorean passport. *American friends* very happy about info they were obtaining from UCGlobal
25. It’s chilling to hear the statement by an anonymous witness formerly working for UCGlobal detailing talks to poison Julian #Assange, following his lawyer Balthasar Garzon’s
26. new witness statement read by Mark Summers: the one by @AitorxMartinez, a Spanish lawyer working for the Balthasar Garzon’s law firm in Madrid, who was contacted by a former UCGlobal employee to reveal UC Global activities inside the embassy
26. As a witness I am shocked at the absurd arguments by US on UC Global: even if corroborated, US authorities won’t use info by UCGlobal. imagine if a guy steal 10 millions and when the police arrest him, he argues: Oh, I won’t spend those stolen money
27. JA defence now reading professor Noam Chomsky’s witness statement

34. .@GuantanamoAndy worked as media partner for #GitmoFiles with us tremendously helping us to navigate 779detainees’ assessments.Rumsfeld had characterised them as *the worst of the worst*, #WikiLeaks allowed to reveal US labelled only 220 of them as high profile terrorists
35. Mark Summers now reading @JameelJaffer’s witness statement
36. .@JameelJaffer: indictment of JA is a grave threat to freedom of the press
37. Jameel Jaffer: The classified information shields controversial information from scrutiny. If the press doesn’t publish unauthorised classified information, then the public debate fully controlled by state authorities
38. Jameel Jaffer: since 9/11 Espionage Act used against government’s insiders. The Obama Admin indicted 9 sources and considered to indict Julian #Assange until it abandoned the idea
39. Jameel Jaffer: Julian #Assange engaged in core journalistic activities

1. Leggete questo articolo della pubblicazione #DefenseNews,emanazione del complesso militare-industriale americano (inglese): defensenews.com/global/europe/…
2. l'articolo di #DefenseNews sottolinea che l'Italia ha ritardato la sua partecipazione alla guerra dei #droni per via dei #5Stelle, inizialmente contrari
3. dovete sapere che la guerra dei #droni NON sarebbe possibile senza la sorveglianza di massa della #NSA e, in particolare, senza la raccolta dei metadati telefonici e internet. Il drone ha un sistema che aggancia il telefono della persona da uccidere

1. vi racconto la mia esperienza con la deindicizzazione: nel 2009 ho passato 1 ANNO a indagare sul marchio della moda giovanile #Datch,dopo che nei loro impianti in Pakistan 6 lavoratori erano bruciati vivi
2. feci un'inchiesta durata 1 ANNO: i lavoratori pakistani parlavano lingue locali come sindhi,balochi,urdu.Un'organizzazione locale ci aiutò a raccogliere testimonianze dei lavoratori, tra cui i bambini
3. dopo 1 ANNO di lavoro di inchiesta pubblicai con 2 colleghi(Gianluca Di Feo e Paolo Tessadri, che avevano collaborato all'inchiesta) su l'Espresso: fui immediatamente querelata. Portammo i testimoni dal Pakistan:gente mai uscita dal suo distretto

1. ho letto #Saviano ieri e la frase su cui mi sono soffermata è:
"ora se potessi chiederei solo di camminare libero. Null’altro."
E' una sensazione che conosco bene,NON per me la mia di vita,per fortuna. E' la sensazione di chi non ha più il controllo sulla propria vita
2.Chi non ha più il controllo sulla propria vita,come #Saviano,non può scendere in strada improvvisamente alle 11 di sera a bere una birra. Una libertà che non hai se vivi blindato. Allo stesso è fortunato. Chi si mette contro il Potere criminale,almeno ha una scorta
3. chi si mette contro la Mafia,la Camorra, la 'Ndrangheta,almeno ha 2-3 carabinieri che lo scortano, lo proteggono.Finché possono, certo.Chi invece si mette contro il Potere Segreto,gli apparati dello Stato,che siano la #CIA o l'#FSB,non può manco contare su una scorta

1.non sono in grado di giudicare la riforma del processo penale,perché non ho le competenze per farlo, ma sono in grado di giudicare la perversa gestione dei cosiddetti "tabulati telefonici", che il resto del mondo sviluppato chiama "metadati telefonici": è il mio mondo
2. abbiamo capito l'importanza dei "tabulati telefonici",che il mondo evoluto chiama "metadati telefonici", grazie ai file di #Snowden.Solo grazie a questi file abbiamo capito che i metadati telefonici sono estremamente importanti,NON sono un sottoprodotto
3. grazie ai file di #Snowden abbiamo scoperto che la #NSA basava la sua sorveglianza di massa soprattutto sui metadati telefonici,perché mentre per capire il contenuto delle intercettazioni delle conversazioni telefoniche serve un operatore umano,per i metadati non serve

1. ci sono 2 notizie che voglio approfondire con voi: la 1a è quella dei rifugiati/migranti di #Haiti frustati dai funzionari di frontiera USA. Le immagini brutali hanno colpito tutti
2. le ragioni per gli abitanti di #Haiti scappano dal loro paese sono molteplici, la povertà estrema,la povertà più nera è una di queste. E allora voglio usare il mio libro "Il Potere Segreto. Perché vogliono distruggere Julian #Assange e #WikiLeaks" per farvi capire
3. nel mio libro ricostruisco la brutalità del capitalismo USA a #Haiti,grazie al lavoro dei giornalisti del principale magazine di Haiti: #HaitiLiberté e a quelli del settimanale americano #TheNation,che per primi hanno scoperto questi documenti

1. questa vicenda va oltre l'allucinante, oltre #GeorgeOrwell. Nasce osservatorio per distinguere vero da falso. E indovinate con chi collabora? Con l'#AllianceOfDemocracies huffingtonpost.it/entry/nasce-id…
2. è assolutamente allucinante che nasca osservatorio sul vero e falso in collaborazione con think tank cassa di risonanza dei militari,fondazione #GeorgeWBush,#AtlanticCouncil allianceofdemocracies.org/supporters/
3. io mi chiedo come @repubblica e @corriere possano prestarsi a un'operazione come questa. Un osservatorio che distingue vero da falso in collaborazione con think tank del complesso militare-industriale USA allianceofdemocracies.org/supporters/
