Julian AssangeWikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has announced the release of files affecting ‘every country in the world’ in his second public appearance since seeking asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

In a Christmas message marking six months since he entered the embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden over claims of rape and sexual assault, Mr Assange said the door was open to negotiations to resolve the situation. Speaking to an audience of around 100 supporters, Mr Assange said it had been a ‘huge year’ for his anti-secrecy website.

“Next year will be equally busy,” Our Julian said. “WikiLeaks has already over one million documents being prepared to be released, documents that affect every country in the world.”

Mr Assange thanked Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa for granting him asylum and hit out at the United States and other Western governments :: Read the full article »»»»

Posted: December 13th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Julian Assange, Revolute, WikiLeaks | Tags: , , , , , | Comments Off on Julian Assange Confirms New Australian WikiLeaks Political Party

Julian AssangeJulian Assange says he intends to run for a Senate seat in the next election, with plans for an Australian WikiLeaks party “significantly advanced”. The Australian has been holed up in Ecuador’s London embassy since June in a bid to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he faces questioning over sexual assault allegations.

Mr Assange is concerned that if he goes to Sweden, authorities will allow him to be extradited to the United States to be questioned over WikiLeaks’ release of thousands of US diplomatic cables.

Mr Assange has told Fairfax Media he intends to push ahead with previously-announced plans to run for the Australian Senate. He said he had not yet registered to vote, but told Fairfax he believes he will be able to register in either New South Wales or Victoria as an overseas voter.

Mr Assange said a “strategic decision” would determine which state he would run to represent. He also said “a number of very worthy people admired by the Australian public” have expressed interest in standing for a yet-to-be registered Australian WikiLeaks party :: Read the full article »»»»

Julian AssangeWikiLeaks has announced its founder and leader Julian Assange is planning to run for a seat in the Australian Senate. Julian Assange is in England awaiting possible extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over allegations that he sexually assaulted two women in 2010. He is currently on bail waiting for a British Supreme Court decision on his appeal against the extradition.

But WikiLeaks says despite his legal predicament, Assange is eligible to run for the Upper House. “We have discovered that it is possible for Julian Assange to run for the Australian Senate while detained,” WikiLeaks said via Twitter. “Julian has decided to run.”

WikiLeaks said it would also be running a candidate against Prime Minister Julia Gillard in her seat of Lalor. “The name of the Lalor candidate and the state Julian will run for will be announced at the appropriate time,” it said. Read the full article »»»»


UPDATED! Has Our Julian Fallen For His Own Celebrity?

Posted: August 22nd, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Julian Assange, Revolute, WikiLeaks | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on UPDATED! Has Our Julian Fallen For His Own Celebrity?

Julian AssangeIt’s been a while since – July 6: Wikileaks Latest Round of Releases, Syrian Emails! – we bought into the Assange story, his antics up until July this year seemed to follow a fairly righteous route. Is he simply trying to avoid facing Swedish questioning on charges that he’s pretty much admitted to?

Has Mr Assange now fallen for his own celebrity? Asking this question might seem a little odd, but consider US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland’s statement yesterday and the question becomes more than a little relevant.

Ms Nuland said that the US had nothing to do with the UK’s attempt to extradite Mr Assange to Sweden, that our Julian was simply avoiding facing possible charges for having sex without a condom, a crime in Sweden where two female WikiLeaks volunteers in Sweden have accused Assange of sexual misconduct.

“He is making all kinds of wild assertions about the US when in fact his issue with the government of the United Kingdom has to do with whether he’s going to face justice in Sweden for something that has nothing to do with WikiLeaks, it has to do with charges of sexual misconduct,” Ms Nuland said in a press conference. “He is clearly trying to deflect attention away from the real issue, which is whether he’s going to face justice in Sweden. That case has nothing to do with us. It’s a matter between the United Kingdom, Sweden and now Ecuador has inserted itself.”

We realise that WikiLeaks – as an organisation – has an obligation to protect it’s protagonists, but is Julian Assange WikLeaks? or is the organisation larger than just one man? For a man who is prepared to spend – perhaps – the rest of his life in asylum, it’s odd that he simply doesn’t front the Swedish charges, surely there is someone within WikiLeaks that might keep the fight going in his absence?

In fairness to Mr Assange, Ms Nuland, as with previous US statements, declined to comment on the intentions of the US to prosecute WikiLeaks members :: Read the full article »»»»


UPDATED: Our Julian Applies For Political Asylum to South American Republic

Julian Assange Extends His UK Stay

UPDATED! 30 June 2012: A spokesperson for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says he has defied a British police order to turn himself in for extradition to Sweden and will remain holed up in Ecuador’s embassy in London.

Julian Assange is seeking asylum in Ecuador in a last-ditch bid to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over allegations of sexual assault. The Australian born founder of Wikileaks visited Ecuador’s embassy in London this morning to seek political asylum.

A statement on the embassy’s website said Ecuador was a signatory to the United Nations Universal Declaration for Human Rights and had an obligation to review all applications for asylum.

The decision to consider Mr Assange’s application for protective asylum should in no way be interpreted as the Government of Ecuador interfering in the judicial processes of either the United Kingdom or Sweden.

The statement from the Embassy of Ecuador in London said,  “While the department assesses Mr Assange’s application, Mr Assange will remain at the embassy, under the protection of the Ecuadorian Government,” the statement said. “The decision to consider Mr Assange’s application for protective asylum should in no way be interpreted as the Government of Ecuador interfering in the judicial processes of either the United Kingdom or Sweden.”

On June 15, 2012 Britain’s Supreme Court has dismissed a bid by Australian WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to reopen his appeal against extradition to Sweden over alleged sex crimes :: Read the full article »»»»
