Sweden vs. Assange

A distinguished European human rights advocate is relentlessly exposing abuses by mainstream Swedish news organizations covering the prosecution of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Dr. Marcello Ferrada de Noli is a medical school professor who splits his time between Sweden and Italy after surviving politically motivated torture decades ago in Chile. He was imprisoned in Quiriquina Island Camp, after resisting Pinochet s Military Junta, and he was himself a whistleblower upon the Russel Tribunal in Rome in 1974, on the crimes perpetrated by the Junta

Wikileaks founder claims Google in bed with US Government

Google has effectively become an extension of the US State and Defense Departments, promoting Washington s policies under the guise of being a harmless and hip tech company, according to Assange s upcoming work, When Google Met Wikileaks . If true, then this nexus represents the next frontier of foreign policy and would have profound implications for the world and the context in which people consume information.

Bradley Manning: Truth on trial? Interview with Julian Assange

This trial is worth watching because of the implications for whistleblowers and the US journalistic organisations that rely on government insiders, so that Americans know what the government is doing in their name. The case also has ramifications for Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency contractor and source of the recent Guardian stories on US intelligence agencies and their surveillance capabilities, that may well extend to the phone records of just about every American, as well as their online correspondence. Snowden is already undergoing the same kind of trial by media that Manning received before getting to court.

Assange threatens to sue Australia’s PM

There's nothing new about asylum seekers dominating Australian media; those attempting to reach Australian shores by boat regularly make headlines. But on Monday it was an asylum seeker who already has an Australian passport who led the news: Julian Assange. Giving an interview to the pressure-group GetUp!, from his bolt-hole in Ecuador's London embassy - in which he's stuck - Assange tried to pull at the heart-strings. "I can't go and visit my family. I can't do things that are important to many people. I can't view the skyline. I can't visit my homeland."

Julian Assange and Ecuador mutually toxic

Ecuador s president, Rafael Correa, appears to be leaning toward granting asylum to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Due to be extradited from the UK to Sweden for questioning over alleged sexual offenses, last month Assange breached his bail conditions to seek refuge in Ecuador s London embassy. Since then he has refused to leave and has requested asylum and even Ecuadorean citizenship from Correa s left-wing administration, which, like Assange, has an antagonistic relationship with Washington.

And on the Kremlin-backed Russia Today channel, no less. Getting Nasrallah to chat earlier this week was a coup for the founder of WikiLeaks, but not an unexpected one.
