What Now

Where is this situation up to now (12/01/2013) and is the Australian Government doing anything to help Julian? And there any way the average Australian CAN help? Thank you for keeping us informed

Why is Jukian surprised?

I would like to see a journalist not be in awe of Julian but ask him: "Why did you publish those emails?" Have never seen Julian talk about freedom of speech or emphasise how he likes to help people who have suffered from any of the emails being kept in secret. It may not be trendy to say so but I don't trust his motives. My gut feeling tells me he did it to gain money from his website. He did it to gain attention and audience and increase his market value for people to invest in Wikileaks.

Keeping the goverments real

Keep up the good job Julian. Good to see some with balls to stand up to the U.S. Goverment. I think your doing a great job keep them real for the people. Would like to see the UFO files released. We all know the U.S. goverment is been keeping this from us for 60 years. To fair that the U.S. Goverment is the only ones to benafit from technology. And to keep us blind sided.. Thanks Again...

World disaster

May WikiLeaks & Julian Assange continue with their disclosures. The people need to know what is going on the world and not be treated like fools. The world will remember Wikileaks long after our simpering PM is gone & I hope that will not be too far in the future - bring back Rudd - at least he has a grip on what the reality of the world situation is. My sympathies go out to the suffering but stoic Japanese in their terrible deprivations due to natures force.

State Dept spokesman PJ Crowley getting rolled after critique Bradley Manning's ordeal.

Reportedly, brutalised Bradley endures 23-hours a day isolation, stripped naked at night (given a tear-proof smock for sleeping). Awakened repeatedly during the night to "ensure he is safe"! Forcibly medicated, possibly given an entire gamut of psychotropic drugs. Ultimately be psychologically broken to confess apropos "incriminating relationship with Assange" (stitched-up proof of active, affirmative engagement). "Guilty of seeking out material, rather than being just a recipient of the leaks"!

Police officer, the interrogator in Assange investigation and the woman (her friend and party colleague) who reported Julian, knew each other. The interviewer of second complainant is a leading member of Social Democrats, whose press officer is first complainant. The lawyer of a law firm vested in prosecution is linked to the interrogator, a party friend. Hell-bent to ensure that prosecutors made a charge of rape against Assange. She complained to a superior once being locked out of the process!

There is a reason

I propose as a 'targeted casualty' of the U.S.A. and successive Australian governments, most people on the planet have come to know the U.S.A. and its allies as warmongering HYPOCRITES. Only right-wing lunatics would support a miltarised secretive army of snivelling cowards. The U.S.A. and its allies are the personification of hypocracy, injustice, and two-facedness. Go to Hell U.S.A.!!!
