Signed, for the potential threat to our First Amendment protections. I don't believe he is a rapist. However, I don't respect his "journalistic" integrity but his prosecution could set a very bad precedent to First Amendment protections under the US Constitution. This isn't about him as a person, it's about a much, much bigger issue.

Signed .One more in our battle. As for being a rapist anonymous "O".The Swedes want him on a charge of what they call stealthing, ( the removal of a condom during horizontal exercise) ,which they class as rape.The two females making the charges are a couple of charmers with the morals of barnyard fowls.Julian was a fool to become involved with them,but like most of us at some time in our lives ,he made a mistake.We're all human.

I signed already but it said 142,851 have signed.

Stealthing.....sounds like some stupid law that the USA would have on their books. I always thought it was a bit too convenient that suddenly "rape' charges were brought up when they did back when.

I just posted a story that Julian isn't in the best of health. The writer asked for us to share it far and wide so I posted on FB and also here on C2.

How awesome is this -

2 protesters have locked on in the UK consulate in Melbourne!!
They were there for a while, photos taken & spread on social media but they were just literally carried out by the cops!!!

It's happening globally in British embassies & consulates!!!
Also outside Amnesty offices!
Do not sign their petitions until they recognise that Julian is being tortured!!!

We have also been bombarding trumps & scomos Twitter accounts with messages to free Julian!!

i'm trying to get together a group of a few or hey even just ONE more person, so we can do the same in my city, Adelaide!!!

143,078 have signed.

Julian Assange writes a letter from prison:-

"I am unbroken...
but the days when I could read & speak & organize to defend myself, my ideals & my people are over until I am free!
Everyone else must take my place."

From Pray and Weep By Karen Kwiatkowski

"... Furthermore, US government employees, from the DoD, FBI and the CIA have been interviewing Assange in Belmarsh Prison, prior to any extradition decision.

Interviewing is the wrong word. I’d like to say doctoring him, because it would be more accurate, except that word implies some care for a positive outcome. Chemical Gina has her hands in this one, and we are being told that Assange is being “treated” with 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate, known as BZ. What BZ does, from the New Yorker LINK:

“Exposed soldiers exhibited bizarre symptoms: rapid mumbling, or picking obsessively at bedclothes and other objects, real or imaginary. “…The drug’s effect lasted for days. At its peak, volunteers were totally cut off in their own minds, jolting from one fragmented existence to the next. They saw visions: Lilliputian baseball players competing on a tabletop diamond; animals or people or objects that materialized and vanished. ….

Soldiers on BZ could remember only fragments of the experience afterward. As the drug wore off, and the subjects had trouble discerning what was real, many experienced anxiety, aggression, even terror. Ketchum [Dr. James Ketchum, DoD Edgewood Arsenal, MD] built padded cells to prevent injuries, but at times the subjects couldn’t be contained. One escaped, running from imagined murderers. Another, on a drug similar to BZ, saw “bugs, worms, one snake, a monkey and numerous rats,” and thought his skin was covered in blood. “Subject broke a wooden chair and smashed a hole in the wall after tearing down a 4-by-7-ft panel of padding,” his chart noted. Ketchum and three assistants piled on top of the soldier to subdue him. “He was clearly terrified and convinced we were intending to kill him,” his chart said.

One night, Ketchum rushed into a padded room to reassure a young African-American volunteer wrestling with the ebbing effects of BZ. The soldier, agitated, found the air-conditioner gravely threatening. After calming him down, Ketchum sat beside him. Attempting to see if he could hold a conversation, Ketchum asked, “Why do they have taxes, income taxes, things like that?”

The soldier thought for a minute. “You see, that would be difficult for me to answer, because I don’t like rice,” he said.”

BZ is an interesting drug, certainly not the only one used by the US government, but one of them.

@ Walter F (128); Friday May 24, 2019, 11:28 pm

He didn't remove condom, it broke. Frightened of some STD, woman asked him to be tested and he refused - a big mistake; so she went to a police station to see if they can force him to get a test. And somebody heard about it, so this non-case started rolling...

Oddly, when that woman presented the aforementioned condom to forensics, there were no traces of Julian's DNK on it. Julian was cleared and allowed to leave Sweden. He made a second mistake (or third, if you count his reckless sexual behaviour) and went to UK.

Then another prosecutor reopened the case... and closed it in 2016.

Now the case has been reopened for the third time... to get him to Sweden for rendition to the USA. It seems that the UK jurisdiction can not be bent enough to send Julian directly to the USA and this has to be executed via Sweden.

Thank you Jelica and others for providing new information. I've also just added a new story about the world attacks on freedom of the press, it is being called the Assange Effect. The so called First they came.....

This is why, some of us understood, the story was far greater than the man himself. We must protect these journalist and publishers who provide the worlds people with information.
