Julian Assange

Jennifer Robinson, a lawyer for imprisoned WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, believes the United States’ application to extradite him from a British prison is a "very serious threat to free speech and journalism in the US and all over the world."

The Council for Peace with Justice University of Sydney is urging support for journalist and publisher Julian Assange.

A protest was held outside the US consulate in Sydney to mark World Press Freedom Day on May 3. Protesters called for the release of whistleblower journalist Julian Assange and opposed his threatened extradition to the United States.

When Julian Assange appeared in front of the Melbourne Town Hall pipe organ, the pipes shimmered, nearly whistled; leaky, ready to burst. Pastel white as he was beamed in live from London, Assange looked surprisingly well.

The pipe setting became more allegoric as he spoke of his latest alarming leak: The Pied Piper theory. The reference is not to Assange leading his followers into the unknown. But more on that madcap theory later.

Lecture and Q&A specialist company ThinkInc, toured Assange across Australia under the banner of “No more secrets: No more lies”.

Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of Anonymous Gabriella Coleman 464 pages Published November 2014 Verso www.versobooks.com In the early days of hacker collective Anonymous, political activism seemed to be the last thing on its members' minds. Seeking only laughs, usually at the expense of others, members would dismiss anyone they disapproved of as "fags". They held particular disdain for anyone hinting at political activism, who they slammed as "moralfags".

Why Are We The Good Guys? David Cromwell Zero Books Out September 28, 2012 www.zero-books.net As a child, David Cromwell got an invaluable insight into the way the corporate media skews the news. Scattered around his family's Scottish home were "mainstream" newspapers like the Daily Record and Glasgow Herald. But among them was also the non-corporate Daily Worker, later to become the Morning Star, which his father not only bought, but sold.
