    Many thanks to Joe Lauria for organizing this demonstration of solidarity with a great working class hero. Viva Assange!

    We must work as one, as a nation, to send a message about whistleblowing. Whats good for the goose is not good for the gander (our electoral officials) which is the message they sing loud and clear. Look at Julian. I wanted to partipae in the vigil from my home but watching the video it would play and then say “Blocked in your country”. My country is America. Is any other readers having this problem or is it my overdue wifi?

    Ray McGovern ex-CIA.
    Our email has been intercepted causing
    soldiers to go into the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, directly right after my email has
    been sent.
    CAUTION IS WARRANTED.
    Unintended consequence. What was meant for Julian Assange’s freedom ended up as something very different. I am only “proposing” for a confirmed “yes.” Trump responded to me saying that I am desperate.
    My non-response to that resulted in a public song he was forced to take down: the name of the song is ” Everybody Hurts Sometimes,”
    by R.E.M. Therefore I ask you, whose more desperate? Why is he using the emotion game?
    Possibly because he knows that my plan was legitimate and helpful to Julian. CONSIDER CAREFULLY why Trump is responding in such a way. I have enough resources for one trip. I can not go and come back without real results. Love God. Love yourself. Love others.
    Do good. Be good. Godspeed.

      Those without integrity or honor can seldom recognize those qualities in others.

    They will bury him in Guantanamo, not give him a high-profile fair trial. The U.S. is expert at not making martyrs. And there will be no “legitimate” trial. “Fair” is not a word Julian’s persecutors comprehend. Don’t rely on the Constitution. It’s in tatters–and we have no functional justice system in the United States.

    Free Julian Assange, people need to know the truth, and what the government is doing. It is democracy, when we the people have access to be consulted, notify, informed, and participate in our democracy

    Accept that we don’t all support the destruction (or dismantling, or however you want to put it) of the sole Jewish nation to establish yet ano0ther Arab country. Israel is only 1% of the Mideast, with the remaining 99% owned by the Arab countries. Jews are, i9ndeed, indigenous to that bit of land, restored and renamed Israel in 1948. Israel had previously surrendered chunks of the country to peace agreements that were promptly violated by the Arab states.

      And, this pertains to the Julian Assange story how, exactly?

    We are not free until Julian Assange is free and our democracy does not stand a chance without the truth.
    FREE JULIAN ASSANGE. Thank you Consortium News for your commitment to truth.

      Having read some of what has been revealed by Assange I am not sure we ever were or ever will be a real democracy or free.
