I think he means the incarceration and maltreatment of a whistleblower. Not just your average whistleblower either. Just the biggest ever. After what happened to Manning I don't blame him trying to stay out of the hands of the renditioners.
Australian Government should be heard... but they and the Opposition are as quiet as 'church mouses'...
Everyone owes Julian Assange the right to dignity, and recognition of the role he has played in Wikileaks. He hasn't won any prizes, made any money, or gained any favour.... just a torturous existence.
Don't let all this suffering and genuine concern be for nothing.
If nothing else, he IS AN AUSTRALIAN. WE should look after his interests. Of course, THAT would indeed be something WORTHY of spruiking in , say, an Election campaign.
See, we ( Australians) have been made afraid, by the big end of town. Don't believe all the lies, and look to people like Julian Assange , IF ,, and that is the question,... IF we want to have a better society.
Good posting, I agree
HBS Guy wrote:Wikileaks posted stuff about leftwing governments, never revealed embarrassing stuff about right wing governments. He should face trial on the Swedish rape allegations, Yes, we should offer consular assistance and protest moves to extradite him to the US and that is it.
I don't think I agree with you HBS Guy, about what Wikileaks released, but then I can't claim to have read them. Did you..?
AND we owe much more than the bare minimum you'd approve of.
This man put his life on the line for the world...!!!!!!
did you see that video footage of civilians be mowed down, knowingly, and gleefully...?? by US troops FROM THEIR HELICOPTER.?? .
tHAT ONE THING ALONE .. makes any attempt to send him to the US,,, absolutely untenable. ! NO ...
SAy HBS GUY.. if YOU WANT TO CONDEMN HIM, YOU ARE
NOT MY JOB. But I do not take to he position of government, be they British Swedish or American.
But I feel strongly the need to comment on this very important issue. I guss that means I'm on JULIAN'S SIDE.
