“They are still killing the children”
The Trial of Julian Assange
By John Pilger, Ray McGovern Roger Waters and Miko Peled
I.C.H. – 18.10.2020
Julian Assange disclosed atrocities committed by the U.S. and other governments. We have rewarded Julian’s courage by allowing our governments to torture him, so that his pain and suffering may be a warning to others who may choose to share any facts, which would inform the public that those we have elected are corrupt, dishonest killers.
They hide behind a mask, which we allow them to wear so as to avoid our own guilt for the destruction and carnage they inflict on our brothers, our children, and the very future of our species.

Where Is My Final Assange Report ?
By Craig Murray
October 17, 2020 “Information Clearing House” — Julian Assange disclosed atrocities committed by the U.S. and other governments.
Numerous people have contacted me in various ways to ask where is my promised report on the final day of the Assange hearing, to complete the account ?
It is difficult to explain this to you. When I was in London it was extremely intense. This was my daily routine. I would attend court at 10am, take 25 to 30 pages of handwritten notes, and leave around 5. In court I was always with Julian’s dad John, and usually for lunch too. After court I would thank supporters outside the courtroom, occasionally do some media and often meet with the Wikileaks crew to discuss developments and tactics. I would then get back to my hotel room, have a bite to eat and go to bed around 6.30pm to 7pm. I would awake between 11pm and midnight, shower and shave, read my notes and do any research needed. About 3am I would start to write. I would finish writing around 8.30am and proofread. Then I would get dressed. About 9.30am I would make any last changes and press publish. Then I would walk to the Old Bailey and start again.
Apart from being exhausting, I was totally immersed in a bubble, and buoyed by the support of others close to Julian, who were also inside that bubble.
But in that courtroom, you were in the presence of evil. With a civilised veneer, a pretence at process, and even displays of bonhommie, the entire destruction of a human being was in process. Julian was being destroyed as a person before my eyes. For the crime of publishing the truth. He had to sit there listening to days of calm discussion as to the incredible torture that would await him in a US supermax prison, deprived of all meaningful human contact for years on end, in solitary in a cell just fifty square feet.
Fifty square feet. Mark that out yourself now. Three paces by two. Of all the terrible things I heard, Warden Baird explaining that the single hour a day allowed out of the cell is alone in another, absolutely identical cell called the “recreation cell” was perhaps the most chilling. That and the foul government “expert” Dr Blackwood describing how Julian might be sufficiently medicated and physically deprived of the means of suicide to keep him alive for years of this.
I encountered evil in Uzbekistan when the mother brought me the photos of her son tortured to death by immersion in boiling liquid. The US government was also implicated in that, through the CIA cooperation with the Uzbek Security Services; it happened just outside the US military base at Karshi-Khanabad. Here was that same evil paraded in the centre of London, under the panoply of Crown justice.
Having left the bubble, my courage keeps failing me to return to the evil and write up the last day. I know that sounds either pathetic or precious. I know the mainstream journalists who revel in portraying me as mentally unstable will delight to mock. But this last few days I can’t even bring myself to look at my notes. I feel physically ill when I try. Of course I will complete the series, but I may need a little time.
They Thought They Were Free
The Germans, 1933-45
Excerpt from pages 166-73 of « They Thought They Were Free » First published in 1955
By Milton Mayer
“What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.

« C’est un incroyable échec du journalisme. »
Stefania Maurizi – L.G.S. 16.10.2020
La journaliste italienne Stefania Maurizi a travaillé pour certaines des plus grandes publications du pays, dont la Repubblica, l’Espresso et, maintenant, Il Fatto Quotidiano. En 2009, elle a commencé à travailler avec Julian Assange et WikiLeaks sur des dossiers secrets concernant la guerre en Afghanistan, les câbles de la diplomatie américaine et les détenus de Guantanamo. Elle a également enquêté sur des dossiers top-secrets divulgués par le dénonciateur Edward Snowden, révélant entre autres des cas graves de pollution environnementale en Italie et d’exploitation de travailleurs pakistanais dans une usine exploitée par une société italienne.
Maurizi a été témoin lors des audiences d’extradition d’Assange le mois dernier. Alors qu’un juge londonien réfléchit à l’opportunité d’extrader le fondateur de WikiLeaks vers les États-Unis, nous lui avons parlé de son expérience de se faire de puissants ennemis, de ce qu’elle décrit comme des campagnes de diffamation contre WikiLeaks et ceux qui travaillent avec eux – et pourquoi Assange n’aurait jamais dû quitter Berlin.
Sept milliards d’individus,
Pas une douzaine d’assez déterminés pour s’armer et aller arracher cet homme à son cul de basse fosse !
Si Julian Assange avait été un chien, il aurait trouvé d’autres animaux de son espèce pour lui porter secours.
