Great. I wonder if he has been released from the prison.

As much as I’d like to see this (Assange going home), I fear his only hope to end this will be a Trump pardon, and that’s not likely. Once Biden is sworn in, forgetaboutit. Assange exposed too much corruption, malfeasance, and rot surrounding the dem party and it’s “leaders”, for them to ever agree to a pardon from Biden.

But hopefully the appeal will be rejected too and then he doesn’t need a pardon. He can go to a country with no extradition agreement.

My wondering answered.

One can hope for sure, but I wonder how much pressure the US government is applying to the UK, after this ruling. The other problem is Interpol, there is only a small number of tiny countries that aren’t members.

Isn’t Australia the official “sponsor” of the horrible global grab TISA that Wikileaks leaked documents from?

i.e. the “GATS on steroids”
