Today, June 19, marks the 4th year that the heroic WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been kept a prisoner in the Ecuadorean embassy in London thanks to the connivance of the US and UK governments, using their puppet government of Sweden as the legal “justification” for his illegal and totally unwarranted incarceration. We say: US/UK: DROP ALL CHARGES AGAINST JULIAN ASSANGE, NOW! Julian Assange is suffering from illnesses that have developed and intensified during his illegal confinement to the Ecuadorean embassy; the UK government has refused to allow him to obtain the medical attention that he needs. This is an outrage! The UK once was a place where political refugees could find respite from their persecutors; now under the Conservative government of David Cameron it has become a trap for those who dare to speak out against the many criminal activities of governments like the USA and its fawning satellites like Sweden. The US and UK governments are criminalizing the courageous and self-sacrificing citizens like Assange and Edward Snowden who expose governmental excess and criminality and are protecting the high government officials who are guilty of war crimes, mass murder and torture! In the USA, it is the government of the “lesser evil” Democrats led by Barack Obama who have been persecuting brave US government whistleblowers without mercy! It is the Democrats – the “lesser evil party”, if you believe the hype – who have outdone their Republican predecessors in criminalizing those who have the courage and decency to expose criminal activities they have observed inside the US government! The workers of the USA and the UK must stand up in defense of Julian Assange, Edward Snowden and all the other whistleblowers who have exposed “our” governments’ monumental criminality! Free Julian Assange! Free Edward Snowden! Whistleblowing is not a crime! For workers socialist revolution in the USA and UK!
