I feel sorry for Julian Assange - but he should know better than to publish information without expecting any type of reprisal from those whose business he exposes.

The multiple threads are confusing me - I had a twitter link on one of them that had a journalist about to release a link to an op-ed by assange, does anyone have that link?

I changed computers and during that time it seems multiple threads sprung up and now I just can't find the link to that twitter account.

I'd appreciate it.

This is a horrible way to start the day.
I see a "Free Assanage" campaign in the near future.

Don't know how reputable the source is, but if half of it is true, one need not ponder long that this whole 'arrest' thing is such a sham.

Unbelieveable the international interest in getting this guy behind bars for

this

*takes tin foil hat out of drawer*

Personally I lean towards Assange being in the UK because he has been assured protection..

I am going to theorise that the UK is actually on his side, hence no one looking into the legality of his actions in the UK.. I mean even Australians are looking into the legality of his actions.. yet the nation in which he has taken refuge doesn't only makes sense to me if there is some collusion there, and all this time the UK media have Assange on tap, and they do seem to have a freehand in releasing whatever they want, regardless of D-Notices.

I see 2 avenues this taking.. it's thrown out and Assange walks free (my favourite), or Assange is taken into custody (not enough ££ for bail) and if he is taken into protective custody, it will be to keep him safe while some juicy stuff is released, in the meanwhile his lawyers take him through the appeals process and get the charges thrown out

How can we let this happen? A good man getting arrested on bogus charges??? we need to organize a world wide protest.....i would but i wouldn't know where to start. but we can't let julian go down without a fight. and I hope they release the good stuff that was said to be released if he was arrested.....


Yeah we hope we hope, but nobody does anything about it.
But the man turned himself in, so I am betting he did it for a very good reason.

Prediction:

If Assange doesn't reset his dead man's switch/system, the keycodes will go out for the insurance file and the world will know the horrible truth (whatever that is).

The threat of releasing damaging info is his best short-term bargaining chip.

How fast people bail on the man.

cheering him on while he was releasing stuff, but now we dump him like a ton of bricks...and we wonder why nothing ever really changes in the world.

Great find!


The DailyMail is quite reputable in the United Kingdom, it has a Conservative leaning to it but nonetheless quite reputable.

Not all of us "bailed" on him. I think this will only gain more support for WikiLeaks.

This will definitely be a time where supporters of the movement will really show. Those that decide to bail on him simply because he is in custody, were never true supporters to begin with. WikiLeaks will be fine without false supporters.

Or, a third route...

The "insurance file" could be highly damaging to the US, especially if its financial, and could be a competitive tool to the British banking system and international cartel of banks. Arresting him means the information is leaked.

Plus, we've just moved his hearing back

davidallengreen #Assange Court staff tell me heAring will likely to be at 2pm. Likely to be District Judge Hammond, though this is not certain.

It just fills me with irritation how quickly people turn on somebody.
maybe somebody should just press the reset button on civilisation and humankind, most of us as a collective aren't worth two pieces of crap.

My only hope is that now that he is arrested he makes good on his word of releasing that ensurance package he has storred away for a rainy day.
Bring down the whole damn thing if you ask me, it reeks...

I agree. The cat and mouse game will only muddy the waters even further. Let's bring down the hammer and get down to the dirt. Regardless of these bogus charges, I strongly believe good might actually prevail for once. Hang on tight.
