    are you guys serious you think he is a hero? he watched the movie hackers to many times. Every country has secrets in order to protect themselves from other countries, if the us govt went door to door telling every civilian " Hey just so you know our nothern boarder isn't really that secure and russia could probably actually take us in a nuke war and dont tell north korea but were all talk we would actually give them anything, thanks us citizen just wanted you to know everything the govt knows" Thats what Assanges thinking is, we should all know everything but guess what? if every civilian knows it than so do our adversaries who want to hurt us. GET REAL PEOPLE, COME ON

    Hello everyone,
    We must all mobilize to save Julian Assange.
    Who is Julian Assange?
    A multi-award-winning journalist-publisher for his informational work, nominated, each year, for the Nobel Peace Prize.
    100% of the information he has published on his Wikileaks site is unquestionable and undisputed.
    He denounced war crimes including the famous crime of the US military in Iraq (civilians, journalists and a child), the torture in Guantanamo, the financing of DAECH by the Clinton Foundation.
    He was sequestered for eight years in the Ecuadorian Embassy because England has always refused him passage to a country where he would be safe.
    Injunction of the UN to England: Immediate release of Julian Assange, compensation and passage in a country where his security will be assured.
    Instead of respecting the fundamental rights of the journalist-publisher Julian Assange, the injunctions of the UN and international law …
    Lenin Moreno and the Ecuadorian government violated international law by withdrawing political asylum from Julian Assange and his Ecuadorian nationality.
    Lenin Moreno and the Ecuadorian government tortured Julian Assange: They deprived him of air, light and exercise, deprived him of medical care and medication, deprived him of any communication with the outside world including his family and his lawyers, filmed him 24 hours a day 24 including in his most intimate moments, puted him in complete isolation 60 hours a week.
    Lenin Moreno and the Ecuadorian government are guilty of killing the political asylum and security given by nationality and of crime against humanity. They should already be pursued by the ICC.
    Lenin Moreno and the Ecuadorian government sold Julian Assange to the US (the deal was made in the open) and delivered him to England. They sold the images of his private life to the highest bidder (an investigation is underway in Spain). They sold copies of his defense documents and his interviews with his lawyers to the opposing party, the US.
    Lenin Moreno and the Ecuadorian Government have committed common law crimes that violate Ecuadorian law and international law.
    Thérèse May and the English government kidnapped Julian Assange in the Embassy of Ecuador, sentenced him for a crime he did not commit and incarcerated him in a prison for terrorists, put in solitary confinement, deprived of access to his lawyers, deprived of medical care while the doctor who examined him asked that he be taken to a hospital.
    Thérèse May and the English government have violated all international laws and human rights. Thérèse May and the English government practiced Torture. Thérèse May and the English Government are guilty of crimes against humanity as defined in Article 7 of the ICC Statutes.
    Theresa May and the British government are preparing to extradite Julian Assange on 02/05/2019 to the US while the UN has demanded that they do not do so, release him, compensate him and take him to a safe place.
    In the USA, an in camera trial for espionage, without a lawyer, is waiting for Julian Assange (remember that he has only disseminated information and that it is a fundamental right of every individual registered in all treaties of international law ) the torture, a life imprisonment or the death penalty.
    If England extradites Julian Assange, it will go against UN injunctions, violate all the rules of international law and its national law. England does not have the right to extradite an individual to another country if there is a risk of torture or the death penalty.
    England will again be guilty of crimes against humanity.
    We must mobilize for the English government to respect UN injunctions and human rights.
    She must release Julian Assange immediately, indemnify him, protect him and drive him to safety.
    His freedom is our freedom because without the freedom to inform, all other freedom is illusory.
    Sign the petitions, display his face everywhere, write to the English government. Make noise, a lot of noise.
    He must be free. As soon as possible. He did not commit any crime except to tell the truth.
    For those who want to know more: Unity 4J

    CBS This Morning, please read the book "Lucifer's Banker" by Bradley Birkenfeld. The writer, a former financier of USB Bank Switzerland, reveals a great scandal (US politicians, prominent persons and wealthy individuals hiding their tax money in Switzerland), his fight to get the US Department of Justice to have a hearing and evaluate the evidence, his imprisonment as a whistleblower, and the role of Hillary Clinton in covering up for the UBS in her role as a secretary of state. Why isn't this scandal discussed every morning, by every TV in the Western world? Too many hidden accounts, I guess. It is politicians like Clinton who ought to sit in house arrest for six years, not someone trying to expose their numerous scandals.

    I’m really disappointed with people. Assange gets arrested and BAM, Bernie Sanders is the one to blame. I thought our movement was stronger. People, listen. This is a political power game, played with and by The U.S.A and Great Britain governments. The blame should be pointed in the right direction, not at a presidential candidate, who wants the best for the ordinary American worker. Stop it.
    If you people don’t stop this blame game, next arrest will be E. Snowden. That’s the truth. And you can scream and cry as much as you want...you can’t do a damn thing about it.
