The persecution of WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange

03-12-2010 17:42

"The documents obtained by WikiLeaks—only a small fraction of which have been released so far—help expose what is a permanent conspiracy against the democratic rights of the world’s population: from covering up US bombings of civilians in Yemen, to working behind the scenes to obstruct the prosecution of CIA agents guilty of torture, to spying on UN officials in violation of international treaties.
Those who are leading the campaign against WikiLeaks are themselves responsible for horrific atrocities. In the face of allegations from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that WikiLeaks had placed lives in danger, Assange gave an appropriate response in an interview with Time magazine. WikiLeaks, he noted, “has never caused an individual … to come to any sort of physical harm or to be wrongly imprisoned and so on. That is a record compared to the organizations that we are trying to expose who have literally been involved in the deaths of hundreds or thousands or, potentially over the course of many years, millions.”

St Pancras out of control

03-12-2010 17:22

The demonstration eventually made it to Kings Cross, and it quickly moved into the Eurostar terminal. It kept moving around the terminal until it eventually made its way to the check-in desks and border control. A group of people managed to go throgh the check in and into the border area, which provoked a quick, and quite freaked-out, response from the security personnel. After a while people decided to leave the terminal in a group, at which point the Transport Police turned up. One protestor got arrested.
