Video: Amnesty International says Julian Assange’s “arbitrary” detention must end

As WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange faces up to 175 years in prison if he is extradited to the U.S. under the Espionage Act for publishing classified documents exposing U.S. war crimes, Amnesty International Secretary General Agnès Callamard says his detention since 2010 “is arbitrary and that he should be released.” She adds that allegations made against him by the U.S. authorities “raise a large number of problems and red flags in relation to freedom of the press.”

  1. The US Colonisation of Australia has been going on at an increasing rate since the second world war.

    Words used, expressions used and even accent that was normal, have now almost disappeared an been replaced by Americanisations.

    Australians need to FORCE issues to reclaim our culture, as part of the process of having our own identity. Part of going our on way, is to call for the freeing of free Julian Assange, getting rid of foreign military and troops bases, and building our own relationships with neighbouring countries of the Pacific region, China included.
