Not reported by ANY corporate media was the October 2 London protest to protect Julian Assange, led by Pink Floyd’s world famous co-founder, Roger Waters and award-winning journalist John Pilger, in front of Britain’s Home Office. About 1,000 people attended.
On Monday, October 28th Roger Waters, one of the top UK performers of all time (“Dark Side of the Moon”), described the media blackout:
This is incredible, given that Assange was interviewed in 2010 by Sir David Frost (the only person to have interviewed all US presidents and UK prime ministers for many decades) on Al Jazeera.
There are no charges against Assange. At the Westminster magistrate’s extradition hearing October 21, John Pilger was present and reported that Assange could barely speak or think. Assange was not permitted to see his defence documents while in this “court”. John’s description is utterly appalling.
The truth about Julian’s character was recently reported by the Ecuadorian diplomat at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, who was with Julian for six years. See this.
The media is now entirely complicit as the UK bows to US dominance, while turning its back on its own laws in an atrocious violation of human rights.
Julian needs a network of people to co-ordinate a grass-roots movement to press for his freedom – but most people as of 2019 have never heard of Assange, thanks to the presstitute media. Paul Craig Roberts has recently mounted a petition to support Assange on his website.
Julian himself has made some suggestions on how to help him in his replies to people who have written to him in prison: “Letters from Belmarsh: What Julian Assange says we should do to save his life”
Until something major gets organized, it is possible to write words of encouragement to Julian. His prisoner number must be included on the envelop or the letter will not be delivered to him in Belmarsh maximum security prison, where he is not permitted to speak to other prisoners. Here is what is recommended for writing to him:
