WATCH: CN Live! — The Latest in Assange Case

Stella Assange spoke to about 300 protestors on Tuesday outside the Home Office in London, where Home Secretary Priti Patel will decide by May 31 whether to extradite imprisoned WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, to the United States. He faces up to 175 years in prison for revealing America’s war crimes and other dirty secrets. On Tuesday, Assange’s lawyers made their final submissions to Patel.

    like the banks i guess… nothing works the way it should if you aren’t one of the team-players.

    Orwell and Huxley warned –
    Journalists get suborned –
    Tell lies to please the state,
    Start wars, or spew out hate.

    Julian‘s different, though.
    He’ll tell us every time
    The “West” kills children – so
    He’s jailed for that crime.

    CIA, Britain too
    Haunt Julian like snakes.
    Crush him, as pythons do.
    At justice, they are fakes,

    Killing him slowly. They
    Keep him in prison. Now
    Journalists shouldn’t sup
    Biden’s Kool-Aid – one day
    They may be learning how
    It feels to be shut up.

    Heart breaking to see Stella and her boys, standing up for Julian..she is amazing and I hope, for once,
    Priti Patel makes the right decision, to give these little boys, their Daddy back?
    He is not guilty of any crime and it seems the US, thinks that telling the truth is a crime and
    if Julian is given to the US, Boris will always be remembered for this injustice!

    BS about “press freedom” here in the U.S. belies this prosecution. “Mass formation”, propaganda and other manipulation is more like an appropriate assessment.

    Great work, Joe!

    Back to “on the ground” reporting with camera, microphone and video.

    I hope you are enthused. We are engaged.

    We can hope for justice for Julian but do not expect it from the vassel state the UK has become.
