The UK is using COVID-19 as a biological weapon. The US refusal to drop charges is a mark of US complicity. Unless Assange is broken out of jail, it’s almost certain the UK will succeed in killing him through COVID-19 infection.

clear the global oligarchs want to kill him

and chances go up all the time

kill him before they can bring him to the US and since charges are under the espionage act, a trial here would be secret so even less coverage than the travesty in UK

Belmarsh prison is a highly-contagious hell-hole – a slaughterhouse, along with Cook County, Riker’s Island, Santa Rita, that dungeon in Louisiana… without exception those inside, in USA and UK, are already condemned by now.

So we lose Assange, whose health is already hanging by a thread, after years of official assault on his person to break him down physically and mentally. You can say the same for Mumia in Pennsylvania. Good bye, dear comrades. Your splendid, exemplary courage and the truth you brought to light will never die in those who hold your memory dear. (Sorry to eulogize only slightly in advance.)

A curse upon every single politician involved in the arrest, incarceration, and extradition of Julian Assange both here in the U.S. as well as in the U.K.

The continued detention of Julian Assange is a black mark against the UK. Instead of behaving like an independent nation, it appears to be a fifty-first State of the US with even less power than the other fifty. Justice demands the release of this man. He and Chelsea Manning will be honored as true patriots in the future, who offered up their freedom in order to inform the people of what was being done in our name. It is outrageous and I thought better of the UK. What are we holding over you? Co-operating with the US government’s determination to make a lesson out of anyone brave enough to tell the truth makes the UK just as bad. Be brave! Stand up for justice!

In an interesting development, Julian Assange is the father of 2 kids:

It’s ironic that the US is pushing so hard to extradite Assange but is pushing equally hard NOT to extradite the US citizen Anne Sacoolas for the wrongful death of teenager Harry Dunn.

Wkileaks has been invaluable for my understanding of TISA the Obama-Biden supported global grab scheme.
They sche to privatize evertythimg thst has albreay been privatized.
