Change always comes bottom up, never top down, why voting achieves nothing. Names and faces change. Dirty business as usual continues.

The Trump regime's Justice Department formally requested Assange's extradition from the UK to the US. If extradited to the US, he's doomed.

Chelsea Manning's horrific mistreatment is happening all over again.
