    Julian Assange

    At the request of the ecuadorian president, British ministry of truth officials remove Assange from the embassy via the security services.

    Despite the UK having allegedly pledged not to extradite Assange to a country with the death penalty, it is expected he'll be extradited to the USA for interrogation and to face charges of espionage in the coming days.

    Unlike anti-war journalists in the USA Assange could not be sacked and deplatformed from the corporate media. Such is the danger of the internet and alternative news.

    While the media are ranked at an all time low, Assange offered a whistleblowing service and has never had to withdraw a publication.

    It's safe to say he understood the risks of his endeavour and will likely soon pay the final cost having been holed up in the embassy for many years now. In the last year or so he has had internet access removed and his visitors have been denied access in the main.

    Hardly surprising, don't expect him to get much support from the mainstream media.
    Reporters without borders have backed him.

    This has been coming for a long time. USA leaked extradition papers and theres been lots of talk about Ecuador being held to ransom over Assange.

    I heard that he's a pawn in the Brexit game for a better trade deal with the USA

    Seems to be the case with Ecuador. It's hard to know what's going on with Assange, it's very murky.

    Funnily enough while both reps/dems and the security services seem to hate him, think he has more support from both parties grassroots over there than anywhere else.

    I heard Pamela Anderson is a fan so he's always got that.

    The IMF just approved a $4.2 billion loan for Ecuador.

    Can't Trump pardon him? He apparently likes wikileaks.

    Not that it would do much good - he'll have some "accident" within the week.
