Assange in Sweden

On the Occasion of Julian Assange Celebrating His 45th Birthday Within the Confines of the Ecuadorean Embassy in London

Today, 3 July 2016, on the birthday of the greatest truth-teller of our times, it might be appropriate to congratulate and celebrate with Julian Assange (and his friends and his cat).

December 10, 2015: The Silence

A week Saturday it will be two months since Stefania Maurizi released the FOI documents that turned the case of Assange in Sweden on its head – or more accurately: put it out of its misery, once and for all.

Common with Interrogations Abroad

From Sweden’s Journalisten (The Journalist) 9 November 2015. Swedish prosecutors have for several years refused to interview Julian Assange in Great Britain.

Statement by JULIAN ASSANGE upon hearing the expiry of 3 allegations

Come to the embassy to take my statement or promise not to send me to the United States. This Swedish official refused both. She even […]

Statement by Julian Assange Legal Defence Committee

Assange has not been charged in Sweden or the UK. The US Department of Justice is trying to prosecute him for ‘espionage’. This is the reason he was given asylum by Ecuador.
