Julian Assange devoted his life to exposing the crimes of the powerful.

The powerful devote their lives to eliminating those who would expose their crimes.

Pray for Julian Assange.

Hurrah and along with the investigation into the company which spied on Julian by invasion of his privacy while he had a legal asylum claim in the Embassy of Ecuador maybe the case will have a more positive outcome.

Truth-tellers don’t fare well amongst humans, especially military and wealthy humans. The USA elites want to kill Assange, Snowden and Chelsea Manning, for exposing the Empire’s crimes. Speaking of Chelsea, I just got this from her people:
Dear Supporters,

It’s the holiday season and Chelsea would love to hear from you. You can write to her here:

Chelsea Elizabeth Manning
A0181426
William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center
2001 Mill Road
Alexandria, VA 22314

Chelsea’s legal team continues to pursue all legal options for her release, and for the transformation of the grand jury process in general. They — and Chelsea — have been able to keep everything going because of you.

Due to your continued support, we believe we are on the cusp of some exciting legal developments, and we look forward to sharing news of those with you in the near future.

Chelsea explains the serious problems with Grand Juries and why she cannot, in good conscience, participate in them, in her new statement for this year’s Aaron Swartz Day & International Hackathon, which took place at the Internet Archive, in San Francisco, on November 9, 2019.

Chelsea’s statement was read aloud since she could not be there in person. Now, you can read it here: https://www.aaronswartzday.org/chelsea-manning-asd-2019/

Thank you for donating what you can to help Chelsea’s legal battle. Although Chelsea is prepared to spend the next year in jail, her team will continue to fight hard to secure her release.

DONATE

Sincerely,

The Chelsea Resists Support Committee

If you are a liberal, progressive individual, this is no longer your country. It has been taken over by right-wing monsters that operate out of a sense of various forms of greed. The reason the country is lost is because the systems that would root out corruption and kill dishonesty are now owned by those very greed monsters. Take up the gun, pitchforks are useless at this point, or knuckle under to the powers that be.

It was clear like the light of day, that there never was a case in Sweden. It was all a masquerade, that anyone who paid attention, saw through. Best detailed summary on why there was never a case in Sweden, is from the UN rapporteur, Nils Melzer. This finale just proves what was clear since the beginning. Good news though, from the perspective of focusing resources in just one case. What a sad state of the world we live in.

I had thought the investigation was dropped a long time ago. Turns out this is the third time it has been dropped. So, I guess we should anticipate it will be re-opened the next time it is politically convenient for Empire, and then dropped again.
