This is the price, he would pay for exposing America's vile corruption and cruelty'.We trust Britain's sense of justice and humanity will prevail and it will not comply to the American request.To its shame our governments have done nothing to help him .A previous labor PM Gillard branded him a traitor and our present Liberal one is completely disinterested .The man stands alone and abandoned as a martyr for fee speech.

There are US lawyers discussing this on Twitter, i don't understand the legalities so i hope he will have the very best experts in every field necessary, defending him!

i am disgusted & appalled by the far right evangelicals that govern my country, who's noses are a permanent shade of brown from residing endlessly in trump's colon!

i was so hoping for a change in government last weekend which would've helped Julian, not to be!!

Therefore we the citizens of Australia, USA & UK must stand up & defend not only Julian but the many civilian freedoms that are implicated & threatened by his arrest!
