On December 11th, 2010, one of my the most favorite members of this community, Volga Boatman from Australia, wrote:
It is no accident that Julian Assage faces charges from established power players.
His site, WIKILEAKS, has set the tone for embarrassing governments.
Julian is a political prisoner, and the journalistic community in Australia is outraged by the treatment of the man. We, in Australia, do not tolerate political prisoners. No-one should.
Free Julian Assage!!!!
Amen to that!

16 AUGUST 2012: Ecuador has granted Political Asylum to Assange!
Justice for Assange : Now, after 619 days under house arrest, Assange is under the protection of the Ecuadorean embassy. The Ecuadorean government has found that Mr. Assange has justified in his application and through additional material that he has a well-founded fear of political persecution, and risks torture or the death penalty in the United States in connection with the publication of truthful information of matters of interest to the public through his work with WikiLeaks.
WHY Western Democracies Prosecute Assange! Why was he expulsed?
On my knees I beg American patriots and other "Democrat" zealots to refrain from heated debate, to avoid closure of this thread.
