Ecuador’s Ambassador Tells Assange to ‘Shut Up’: Watch 22nd Vigil

The 22nd Unity4J online vigil for Julian Assange was webcast on Friday with guests Tim Canova, Lissa Johnson, Cassandra Fairbanks and more. Watch it here.

In addition to journalist Cassandra Fairbanks, who discussed her bombshell report from inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, we were joined by Lissa Johnson, who spoke about her five part series, “The Psychology of Getting Julian Assange,” and by Tim Canova, a law professor who challenged Debby Wasserman Schultz in a Democratic Primary for a Florida seat in the US House of Representatives. Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee right after the publication of the DNC emails by WikiLeaks just before the start of the DNC convention in July 2016.

    The united states unfortunately has a more negative impact on our planet than Russia. It is, as you say, a handful of individuals that are effectively being protected by the oligopoly on the development and use of (military) force. Pity not more Americans realize that the freedom for their kids to develop and be healthy tomorrow is being reduced today.
    But then again, what else than can be expected from the electorate of which 80% cannot understand what is happening to them, or doesn’t care when a movie with a beer are more interesting. What would bee needed is the firms in mass manipulation, the cambridge analytica’s of this world, to act from a higher moral code.

    There are petty criminals and there are (morally) petty oligarchs. Once more these (morally) insignificant criminals have gotten hold of the machinery of government – meant to protect human rights – and manipulate and milk it to enrich themselves. In this setting, they dare to tell a man of greatness, shut up!

    The rules don’t apply if the Oligarchs don’t want them to apply. Canova is smart and rational, and an advocate for democracy. Delighted to hear he likes Tulsi’s bill to ensure paper voting or back up.

    It’s long past time we began openly discussing authoritarianism and how it works in public, with the goal of escaping its clutches before it becomes too late for us to do so.

    It is manifestly psychological warfare. With the political switch in ecuador, the embassy evolve from a place of political asylum (with a more positive afmosphere) to simply a prison (full of hostile people). Our friends – the defenders of Democracy – against the vile Rusians and Chinese – are operating basic psychological warfare in and out of the embasy (preventing access to medical care to a perrson under stress is oart of the tool set) to lead Mr Assange to a complete mental breakdozwn. It is ironic that Wikileaks is an organization in line with an healthy demofratic apparatus, that shames to oblivion the sensation-medias that entertained us the Russian-gate and alliowed the Bush administration to go on with the Gulf war!

      Which is why Tulsi is being so vilified by the MSM/MIC. She and possibly Bernie are the only candidates who seem up to speaking about it.

    Just walk out the f..n door Julian and see what happens… probably not much now Sweden has given up on ya.
    You’re not a US citizen so can’t be done for treason and the US hasn’t gone after any other WL staff. The biggest hit they can give is to ignore you when you leave. I suspect what you’re really scared of is the irrelevance, oh and being tainted as a Trump lackey. The ten people who follow this site might disagree.

      That’s a pretty garbled comment. What are you really trying to say?

      So this is what is meant by a troll.

      Just walk out the f..n door is the same as asking him to walk in front of a bus likely worse! Right? Equally inhuman albie.
