Who is afraid of Julian Assange? Why are they so determined to suck the life slowly out of his body?

My dear friend Julian continues to waste away in Britain’ Guantanamo, the victim of ruthless Western governments determined to suck his life slowly from his body as a cautionary tale to anyone who dares expose inconvenient truths. DiEM25, the movement that Julian co-founded, is moving heaven and earth to stop them. Today, Saturday 3rd July, we were demonstrating in front of embassies to celebrate his 50th birthday, to demand his immediate release and to wish him at least another 50 years of being a thorn in the global oligarchy’s backside.
