The following is an interview with award-winning international journalist John advocating here on behalf of Wikileak’s founder Julian Assange – who has been arbitrarily detained for the last 5 years in the basement of Ecuadorian embassy in London. Under pressure from the US and UK governments, the Ecuadorian government has now cut off Assange’s communications with the outside world.
“Julian Assange his organization WikiLeaks have done so much to expose the true nature of this war – the rapacious side to this war, and the dangers that it presents. Silencing him, taking away this basic freedom of speech is part of that. It’s part of the propaganda war.”
“That’s what this propaganda war is about – it is a war on speaking out. It is a war on dissent… it’s a war on journalism and it requires collaborators like in The Guardian.”
