Assange Suffering an Unfair, Exaggerated Situation, Ecuador Warns
“We [Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño] are concerned about this situation that continues to be extended while Sweden delays the process and the UK is denying Assange his freedom and right to enjoy his human rights,” said the foreign minister at a press conference at the U.N. in New York, where he is participating in high-level discussions at the General Assembly.
Patiño also said that four years ago an arrest warrant was issued against the Australian journalist, but Swedish prosecutors have not even taken the first step: taking his statement.
According to the diplomat, Quito has conducted numerous negotiations with both countries, in an attempt to find a legal and political solution for the creator of WikiLeaks, an on-line organization that in 2010 revealed thousands of confidential documents on US violations in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as its illegal surveillance.
“We will continue our efforts,” said Patiño, adding that Assange’s health may deteriorate from the confinement, and he cannot maintain appropriate links with his family and friends.
Anyone keeping tabs on Czar USA violations….much greater than ISIS. USA has killed more civilians with drones than all wars combined.
Understand this: The USA needs militarized cops and lackey countries like Sweden in order to maintain control of world values and resources (those would be oil and money).
Aid from blissfully apathetic UK and clueless Australia (Australia’s government does not understand the important of protecting the rights of its citizens), the USA with its “private partners” and other lackey allies ARREST or KILL anyone in the world. Anyone or any nation with values and ideologies that differ from those of the USA.
By uttering the words: in the interest of national security (NSA). Essentially, in the interest of national security, Americans are no longer entitled to constitutional rights…. I am not okay with that: Are you?
In the interest of USA national security, privacy, human rights and surveillance violation abound daily as our government seeks to keep control of world. Punishing whistle blowers sets a dangerous precedent, if adopted by private businesses will send shock-waves of oppressive ripples in the workplace.
Btw, the USA founders created the constitution to prevent the calamity of government overreach and to PROTECT individual rights referred to as unalienable rights.
Ask yourself: How does one blow the whistle on the USA government? A government that employs high technology equipment to suppress, oppress and distract its people. A government in partnership with google and the lucrative technology companies of Silicon Valley.
Is the USA exhibiting the values of the constitution?
Look to Ecuador as a model of courage and respect for JUSTICE and the rights of humans.
***Highly recommend: Julian Assange’s latest book When Google Met Wikileaks. Fascinating dialogue among intellectuals giants. A must read to understand how the USA spies and what that means for our privacy.
Here is a look at justice in the USA with cops are OUT OF CONTROL.
A 17-year-old kid was tased into a coma and suffered brain damage after Officer Tim Runnels arrested him for a traffic ticket that was associated with the car he had borrowed. It was not his ticket. The window was broken and the minor could not roll the window down completely when ordered. Therefore the officer used force to enforce an unlawful order. The department has stated that Runnels acted within policy and placed the officer on paid vacation. The minor is the son of another police officer. Since it deals with one of their own, the FBI has launched a probe
