ASSANGE EXTRADITION HEARING 2020

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 17

The UK court refuses to dismiss the US extradition request for Assange despite the fact that the U.S. illegally spied on him, breached confidential meetings between Assange and his attorneys, and plotted to kidnap or kill him.” Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 16

“Additionally, if you’re put under SAMs ‘you get no benefit from the Cunningham settlement.’ So the prosecution likes to do a lot of cheerleading for things that either don’t exist in U.S. prisons (in reality) or wouldn’t pertain to Assange.” Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 15

ADC has social workers and counsellors but no doctors on staff. There’s also a part-time psychiatrist but no psycho-therapy. Mental health care is described as “very limited,” but if you’re lucky every once in a while a social worker will check in on you. Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 14

The prosecution objected to a submission of two reports written by a U.S prison psychiatrist claiming it was late evidence and “enough is enough.” This, after the U.S. filed a second superseding indictment 6 weeks before the hearing. The judge agreed and denied the submission.

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 13

Someone on Twitter brought up a good point about Assange being “openly declared by the US as a state enemy” and how that would play into his physical safety. Indeed, one might even add Jeffrey Epstein’s questionable “suicide” to the mix not in terms of inadequate mental health care but rather in terms of revenge or silencing. Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 12

To be clear, although Fazel’s expertise focuses on prisoners’ mental health (among other things), he is not an expert on autism or U.S. prisons. He’s also not an expert on SAMs, he’s never been to ADX Florence, he didn’t know the former ADX prison ward said it was “worse than the death penalty” and not “designed for humanity,” and wasn’t even aware that Chelsea Manning tried to commit suicide in a U.S. federal prison. But here we are. Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 11

Is the U.S. prison system adequately equipped to care for prisoners with mental health issues? Manning tried to commit suicide in the same detention center where Assange would be initially held if extradited. Then there’s the whole Jeffrey Epstein “suicide.” Finally, even the former warden of ADX Florence said that the prison “is worse than the death penalty.” Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 10

To publish is “to make generally known”; “to make public announcement of”; “to disseminate to the public”; “to produce or release for distribution”; and “to issue the work of (an author).” If we’re to take the definition of “publish” at face value, WikiLeaks in no way was the first to publish unredacted U.S. cables. Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 9

The US is the poster child for bullying because god forbid anyone expose their lies, wars, political maneuvering and capitalist greed. It’s almost more absurd other countries put up with it like Australia who has nothing to stop the extradition of Assange. Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 8

Imagine if every government in the world took up this torch and started extraditing journalists, publishers, or any media worker for that matter who revealed spies, government sources, or national secrets and criminality? Journalists from around the globe being extradited to Saudi Arabia, Egypt, China, or Eritrea…Have you ever heard of anything so absurd? Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 7

Forty “human rights, free speech and political observers” are still being banned from the extradition hearing including Reporters Without Borders and Human Rights Watch.  Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 6

Day Six with pre-hearing details, updates, witness list, summaries, statements, court documents, interviews, and articles. Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 5

If Assange is extradited and found guilty, he faces 175 years in a U.S. prison which would likely be in a Supermax prison under SAMS, an abusive, administrative process that would cut Assange off from the rest of the world for the remainder of his life. Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 4

There’s a certain level of insanity in a UK prosecutor asking a witness to apologize for an alleged diatribe against Trump and it shows the UK’s willingness to protect his interests during these proceedings. Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 3

This is literally some Qanon (and 2016 election) shiz coming from UK prosecutors on behalf on the U.S. government that Trump is at war with the intelligence agencies and he’s here to save Assange. Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 2

I got the distinct feeling there was some serious “We have to save Trump’s ass in this” from the prosecutors today which that ALONE makes the case against Assange political! Read

Assange Extradition Hearing 2020: Day 1

The first witness called in the hearing was Professor Mark Feldstein via video link and his first words were “I’m having trouble hearing you” because seriously the U.K. court system really is a dumpster fire. Read

Things You Should Know Before We Head Into the Hearing Tomorrow

The indictment against Assange is an overreach “beyond its territory,” which if the court agrees to extradition that would mean any journalist or publisher in the world can be extradited to the U.S. for writing/publishing something the U.S. government doesn’t like. Read

The U.S. Illegally Spied on Assange and His Attorneys

The UK court refuses to dismiss the US extradition request for Assange despite the fact they illegally spied on him, breached confidential meetings between Assange and his attorneys, and plotted to kidnap or kill him. Read

U.K. Judges Undermine Legal Proceedings

There will be no due process for Assange, no fair hearing, and a mountain of human rights violations committed against him during this process at the hands of two U.K. judges who are a complete and utter disgrace to their profession. Read

Being Honest: Considerations of a Julian Assange Supporter

IF history has taught us anything it’s that there has always been someone who wanted to use Assange for their own benefit, or worse, betray him to the very people and governments that want to hurt him. It pays to be vigilant.
