Ecuador Cuts Off Julian Assange's Internet Access

Ecuador Cuts Off Julian Assange's Internet Access

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

The government of Ecuador announced Wednesday that it cut off Julian Assange's internet access.

Among his supporters denouncing the development was Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom—himself facing possible extradition to the U.S.—who said that Ecuador was "making a grave mistake. The internet will rise up against this injustice."


As Ruler of the World, the US cannot stand to be defied. I am sorry for Ecuador and for Julian who has braved so much. Julian…many of us are cheering for you and love you for what you have done and regret the indignities and the incarceration which you have endured.


A huge part of the current resistance to US oppression was sparked by Assange and other whistleblowers–revealing US armed forces abuse of power from Vietnam to Iraq, the US’s spying on its own citizens and its allies. Israel’s nuclear weapons program, constant malfeasance by corporations from the nuclear industry to weapons manufacturers to fossil fuel corporations… in general, revealing the deep, broad corruption in the US. The ongoing crusade against them, especially from the Obama and current administrations, is a campaign against democracy and ultimately the climate movement. It threatens the survival of civilization and the biosphere. Our society is being ratcheted down into fascism; we have almost no time left to change direction.


Censorship and silencing voices in any medium…the FSA …The Fascist States of Amerika.

The mighty WILL fall some day, one day…the sooner the better.


You measure a democracy by the freedom it gives its dissidents, not the freedom it gives its assimilated conformists.” Abbie Hoffman


The fact that Assange is being demonized by the British foreign affairs minister, Alan Duncan, tells me Julian is stepping on some pretty big toes!


Actually it is Bolton that should be executed.


Not me! He is a russian spy.

WTF are you talking about? Russian spy? Go put your head back in the sand.

Democracy!!! Oxymoron like military intelligence!


He’s going dark. Probably being hacked. Just like us who have come out of our sleepwalking stupor, realizing what is going on with fb and twit. Mining us for profit at our own peril - of relinquishing our privacy and a real eye-to-eye life.

WTF are you talking about too. Julian Assange dead? Get your head out of the sand.

This is pretty grim.
