Julian Assange is a hero. He defied the globalizing apparatus of fascist repression to expose the war criminals in our midst. Now, the same war criminals and their agencies who commit supreme international war crimes as policy have apprehended him.

Ecuador has shamed itself and proven itself to be a servile vassal of Empire through its actions and inactions, specifically by violating opinion 54/2015 of the Working Group on Arbitrary Detentions of the United Nations, and by violating Opinion OC-25/2019 of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and Resolution MC-54-19 of the IACHR of March 2019 which obliges Ecuador not to "deport, return, expel, extradite or otherwise remove Assange from the Ecuadorian embassy,"[1] where Assange was sheltered.

The public has a right to know that Empire is waging war against us all, and that Empire is perpetrating wars of aggression that impose the death sentence on millions. Empire and its NATO appendage are forces for globalized mass murder, and the globalized displacement of peoples. It is not a force for good. It creates wars, it does not prevent them. It is the embodiment of evil wrapped in shrouds of propaganda.

When governing agencies bury the truth with impunity, they are also burying millions of corpses. Assange helped to expose Empire for the Life-destroying, Democracy-destroying, Freedom-destroying cancer that it is. He should be lauded and protected, not persecuted and destroyed.

I heard on YouTube an UN official comment that the position of UN member states regarding Venezuela is divided. WTF? Divided??

Thank you for an excellent article with attitude. We don't need no more stinking words from morally divided knuckleheads.

What diplomatic tact! - Perhaps diplomats should behave diplomatically, however we don't have to behave diplomatically especially with regards to lying and murderous bullies.

If Assange isn't placed under 24/7 protection don't be surprised if he falls subject of a sudden "heart attack" or "commits suicide" as the Deep State cannot allow him to have a platform on which to expose truths on so many fronts.

More evidence, being routinely ignored by many, that Al Qaeda didn't attack the U.S.
