Amy Goodman of Democracy Now summarizes a UN report on human rights abuse, concluding Julian Assane has been tortured. It is well known that solitary confinement will drive most people to insanity. Assange hasn't been outdoors in 7 years. He has been denied medical treatment and he is reported in grave condition, unable to hold a conversation.  

'I did visit Mr. Assange in Belmarsh Prison 5/9, and my primary concern is for his health, which was alarming already when I visited him and which seems to have deteriorated rapidly since then...I must say that I’m appalled at the sustained and concerted abuse that this man has been exposed to at the hands of several democratic states over a period of almost a decade. And I’m gravely concerned about the prospects of a possible extradition to the United States.' for which there is no legitimate basis in US or international law.
