The establishment has revealed the degree to which it fears Christine through its own coercive actions. The net result of their efforts will be, instead of silencing her, Assange supporters listening more intently than ever to what she has to say. They will work even harder to ensure that her voice is heard loud and clear.
During the emergency Unity4J discussion, Cian Westmoreland cited his favorite quote from the novel Cloud Atlas, explaining that he first came across the book and quote while serving in Afghanistan. He said that the passage emphasized the importance of even the smallest actions in shaping our future. The statement is intensely apt in describing the current fight for Assange’s safety. Each of our individual small acts – and equally our small inactions, will shape our collective future in determining whether the integrity of free speech is protected, and whether Assange will one day go free.

The Guardian recently published a patently disingenuous article which described WikiLeaks Editor-In-Chief Julian Assange hacking into the communications at the Ecuadorian embassy where he has been arbitrarily confined since 2012, and was cut off from the outside world since late March of this year.
Late yesterday, Telesur reported that Ecuador had signed a “security deal” with the United States, which is expected to result in a US military presence in that country.
Reports casting Mifsud as a Russian intelligence asset do not object to the concept that Mifsud worked as a spy. Their claim simply depicts him as working for the wrong master, and in so-doing, rests the beating heart of the Trump-Russia-collusion scandal on a single inaccurate premise.
If the West is allowed to slowly kill Julian Assange in this manner, the entire public will have lost one of its most stalwart protectors from the wrongs of government, and that is a loss which is utterly irreplaceable.
