Julian Assange is in immense danger

Julian Assange to be silenced by the US

Altnews editor comments:

If there ever was better proof of the US and UK governments interfering in the business of a sovereign country then this must be it.

#Ecuador appears to be under immense pressure to hand over Julian Assange, first to the UK authorities who, in turn, would do the US’ bidding and quickly whisk Julian away on to some secret jail in the US or maybe even #Guantanamo Bay, where he could be held without access to justice for the rest of his life.

Abducting #Wikileaks editor Julian Assange to the US would set an extremely dangerous precedent that should fill the hearts and minds of every self respecting journalist with mortal fear. And every freedom loving blogger and self publisher will be at even greater risk.

The effect will be that those journalists who have a family to feed and a mortgage to pay will obediently parrot the #official_narrative.

Everybody loses…

Dancing to the tune of an almighty puppet-master and incapable of independent and critical assessment of the events?

“This is about a war on #freedom_of_speech; this man is being denied the most basic right – freedom of speech. It’s part of a wider war. The wider war is against known enemies, and Russia is one of them, #China is another,” investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker John Pilger said.
