Opinion: Is The Zeitgeist Finally Shifting In Favor Of Julian Assange?

#ReconnectJulian #Unity4J #DefendWL #FreeAssange

This article is an attempt to encourage people to help in whatever way they can, and also to provide hope by seeing what people have already done! eg: Roger Waters' demonstration of solidarity at a concert, @ChrisLynnHedges's twitter thread, artists like @yarraspot & more!
As I wrote in the article, the ideas and opinions expressed in the piece are singularly my own, & are not endorsed by Wikileaks or any other person besides myself! 🙂
"Readers and viewers must understand that efforts to help do not end at the period finishing the last sentence of this article, or the last guest at a vigil.

The public must empower themselves - we can ALL help in this fight.

WiseupAction recently announced a postcard and letter-writing campaign to Assange at the embassy.


The public is encouraged to send postcards and letters to Julian at the following address:
It is very important that the public writes letters of support, solidarity and encouragement to Julian Assange himself. The impact of this action was discussed by both CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou and long-time human rights activist Ciaron O’Reilly during the Unity4J vigil.
Both men spoke to the positive effect of receiving letters during their own experiences of confinement and imprisonment. O’Reilly and Kiriakou both referred to the letters representing an unbroken thread tying them to humanity, at least somewhat reducing the pain of isolation.
The @WISEUpAction campaign also has postcards for you to send to the British Medical Association, calling for it to intervene on the grounds of the detrimental effects on @JulianAssange’s physical and mental health of prolonged confinement and isolation.

Do not underestimate the power of your retweet, Facebook share, conversation with friends, or blog post!! The public can support Assange on social media, by using hashtags #ReconnectJulian, #Unity4J, #1TweetADay4JA and the like.
During the @Unity4J vigil, @KBZeese spoke about how to ensure that activism is impactful. Zeese is a long-time activist, lawyer, is a member of the Board of the Courage Foundation, and co-director of PopularResistance.org.

Listen to what he had to say!
Quote from @KBZeese: (1/2) “I don’t think we’ve understood, yet, the potential of our power…There is research that shows that if 3.5% of the population gets mobilized on issues where there is a national consensus, the movement always wins..."
Quote from @KBZeese: (2/2) "... For the last one hundred years, with 3.5 % of the population active, & a national consensus, the movement has always won, in a dictatorship or a democracy, it doesn’t matter what kind of government. People have won in those situations.”
The urgency of this issue cannot be over-stated. At the time of writing, @JulianAssange has been cut off from communication with the outside world, apart from counsel with his lawyers, for 74 days. The #NelsonMandela Rules apply “#torture” to just 15 days spent in isolation.
In other words, #JulianAssange is fast approaching five times the limit of consecutive days in isolation that is classified as torture under these rules.

Five. Times. Over. In addition to the nearly six years of confinement in the embassy, and two prior years of house arrest.
If some of the tweets and images in this article are familiar to some readers, it's because I turned to these same inspirational examples during the #Unity4J vigil. I wanted to get these eg's down in one place in a written form, to reach more people. :)

"How can we view the ongoing silence from within the confines of the Ecuadorian embassy as anything other than a political, enforced disappearance in the middle of a so-called free, liberal society?"

#Unity4J #ReconnectJulian #FreeAssange #Auspol

Although #Assange is isolated by the Ecuadorian government, it is overwhelmingly clear that as per the definition, #Ecuador is "acquiescing" to the desire of the US & UK governments.

To the tune of $500 million.

Evolution of the #RussianCollusion Narrative ─ Part Three

Latest from Richard Levine, and a fascinating read.


"Thus, a primary foundation for what became the #Russiancollusion narrative did not involve Russia, but arose due to Britain’s visions for itself."

Sidenote: Levine also cites the connection between British Intelligence, the CIA and the infamous Collin Powell WMD speech at the UN.

In #DecipherYou, @Suzi3D and myself noted SIDToday files wherein the NSA brags about influencing this same speech among others.

The Critical Difference Between Tim Canova And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

This article is intended to highlight - through contrast with Cortez - why it is so critically important that the entire US - not only Floridians - throw the full weight of their support behind Canova's campaign in these last few weeks leading up to the November election.
"Canova’s campaign accepts no corporate funds whatsoever despite the fact that it faces one of the most overtly corrupt and powerful political figures in the country." Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is the former DNC Chairwoman at the heart of rigging the 2016 primary against Sanders"

This may be the biggest pile of steaming horseshit that the @washingtonpost has ever published.

Some of the disinformation re: #Guccifer2.0 can be easily debunked by reading articles like the following:
The linked article here, authored by @with_integrity, also debunks claims made by the Mueller indictment which are cited in the above WaPo piece.

"In view of the more recent work published by the #Forensicator regarding potential media collusion with #Guccifer2.0, we are inclined to revisit an interview given by #WikiLeaks Editor-In-Chief #JulianAssange in August of 2016.."

"The significance of revisiting #Assange’s statements is the degree to which his most significant claim is corroborated or paralleled by the #Forensicator’s analysis."
