Julien's prison term for skipping bail has ended, and he will now remain in indefinite detention while the US makes their case for extradition.

"On September 22, Assange would have been released from HMP Belmarsh, a maximum security centre whose reputation betrays much in the way the authorities wish to handle the publisher. The 50-week jail term imposed for skipping bail was a mild matter relative to others serving life sentences in the prison, but a statement had to be made both to those wishing to emulate Assange and Britain’s cousins across the Atlantic. But that term of imprisonment was never meant to be genuinely observed in the scheme of things; its termination merely being a point in a broader scheme of ongoing detention. It was a mere hiccup in a conversation which involves US power. The Washington security establishment is salivating for its quarry, and Britain is playing minder.

This means keeping him in indefinite detention, or at least till US authorities make their case, however unconvincing. At the Westminster Magistrates court hearing on September 13, District Judge Vanessa Baraitser was short and sharp. “You have been produced today because your sentence of imprisonment is about to come to an end. When that happens your remand status changes from serving prisoner to a person facing extradition.”

...

"The UN Special Rapporteur, Nils Melzer, has also issued stirring assessments of Assange’s detention, with its compounding cruelties. “In 20 years of work with victims of war, violence and political prosecution, I have never seen a group of democratic states gang up to deliberately isolate, demonise and abuse a single individual for such a long time and with so little regard for human dignity and the rule of law. The collective punishment of Julian Assange must end here and now.”

WikiLeaks Source Jeremy Hammond Held in Contempt By Grand Jury

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/10/11/hamm-o11.html

"Information activist and WikiLeaks source Jeremy Hammond, who has been in prison since 2013 for hacking, was held in contempt of court on Thursday for refusing to answer seven questions put to him by a secret grand jury in the US District Court of Virginia. This is the same gand jury and the same Judge Anthony J Trenga that imprisoned Chelsea Manning last March for her refusal to provide false testimony against WikiLeaks' founder and publisher Julian Assange.

While the political establishment in Washington DC and the corporate media has been trumpeting the anonymous CIA 'whistleblower' involved in the efforts by the intelligence establishment and the Democratic Party to impeach Donald Trump, not one of them has mentioned or will mention the true fighters for truth and the exposure of corporate America and US imperialism..."

UN Official's Briefing on Torture of Assange Boycotted By US Media

"In a press briefing at the UN headquarters in New York on October 15, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer restated his assessment that WikiLeaks' publisher Julian Assange has been subjected to an unprecedented campaign of persecution that amounts to 'torture.' Melzer,'s warnings carry the weight and authority of a UN official and an internationally-respected legal expert. They concern Assange, the world's most famous persecuted journalist..."

Only Cowards and Sadists* Support the Persecution of Assange

https://twitter.com/caitoz/status/1186646476912549888

"Former British ambassador Craig Murray has published a very disturbing account of Julian Assange's court appearance yesterday...

'I was deeply shaken while witnessing yesterday's events in Westminster Magistrate's Court...Everybody in that court yesterday saw that one of the greatest journalists and most important dissidents of our times is being tortured to death by the state, before our eyes.

The campaign of demonisation and dehumanisation against Julian, based on government and media lie after government and media lie, has led to a situation where he can be slowly killed in public sight and arraigned on a charge of publishing the truth about government wrongdoing, while receiving no assistance from 'liberal' society.

Unless Julian is released shortly, he will be destroyed. If the state can do this, then who is next...?"

Pilger: Did This Happen in the Home of the Magna Carta?

In the table in front of us were a handful of American officials, whose direction to the prosecutor were carried by his junior; back and forth the young woman went, delivering instructions..."

UK Abuse of Assange Continues: Blocking Spanish Intervention, Caving to US Demands

https://t.co/ArHIWr5qor

"By now it has been well-documented how the UK prosecution service, courts and prisons have squandered untold public resources on one individual who skipped a police bail order seven years ago. Search a little deeper and we see countless precedents have been set in the wake of a hunting expedition that is now slowly killing a journalist who exposed the crimes of powerful states.

The abuse of power continues, with the recent attempt to block a Spanish judge from interviewing Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, which clearly demonstrates that the United Kingdom Central Authority (UKCA) is continuing the state's assault on Assange as he fights extradition to the United States for exposing its war crimes..."

 

"UN issues incredibly powerful condemnation of UK government: 'this case has never been about Mr Assange's guilt or innocence, but about making him pay the price for exposing serious governmental misconduct, including alleged war crimes and corruption."

The Swedish Case Against Assange Was Always Political

"UN Special Rapporteur on Torture: 'In 20 years I have never seen a group of democratic states ganging up to deliberately isolate, demonise and abuse a single individual for such a long time and with so little regard for human dignity and the rule of law."

https://twitter.com/wikileaks/status/1134385305673445376 

Notice now that the smearing and demonisation has resulted in the successful imprisonment and torture of this deep state enemy for courageously publishing forbidden truths on their monstrous crimes, the 'liberal-progressives' who participated so whole-heartedly in the campaign have now fallen silent.  This support for reactionary msm-driven establishment causes is unfortunately not uncommon on this site. It must become an urgent developmental task for Canadian progressives to stop falling for each and every state propaganda operation on behalf of elite agendas.
