Assange Defense

  • Ten years ago today, WikiLeaks released the largest classified military leak in history: the Iraq War Logs. The Assange Defense Committee will be releasing a video next week to commemorate this anniversary. We will be exploring the background of the leaks, what was revealed, and the impact of the Iraq […]
  • Here we recap the major arguments and revelations from expert witnesses who testified in Julian Assange's extradition — and why they matter legally. Topics range from the dangerous threat Assange's indictment poses to journalism, to the abusive conditions Assange would face in the United States' prison system, to the politicized […]
  • Lawyers, journalists, academics, and activists testified about the enormous importance of WikiLeaks 2010-11 publications. They explained how the Iraq and Afghan War Logs documented previously uncounted civilian casualties, war crimes and the true nature of modern warfare, how the State Department cables exposed backroom corruption and the U.S.’s global influence, […]
  • Psychiatrists and doctors who have interviewed, visited, and treated Julian Assange testify that he has Asperger’s syndrome, clinical depression, and is at a high risk of suicide in the event of extradition. U.S. lawyers, prison experts and a former warden testified that if sent to the United States, Assange would […]

We will never be browbeaten into silence on the […]
  • Today was a particularly interesting meeting of the Holyrood Inquiry into the mishandling of the Salmond affair, with two senior civil servants, Judith Mackinnon and Barbara Allison, who both had very convenient and complete failures of memory, about key points which just happened to be the very points on which […]
  • The true mortality rate of covid-19 remains a matter of intense dispute, but it is undoubtedly true that a false public impression was given by the very high percentage of deaths among those who were tested positive, at the time when it was impossible to get tested unless you were […]
  • The security services put an extraordinary amount of media priming effort into explaining why the alleged novichok attack on the Skripals had a delayed effect of several hours, and then failed to kill them. Excuses included that it was a cold day which slowed their metabolisms, that the chemical took […]
  • No matter how much you dislike Trump, only a fool can fail to see the implications for public access to information of the massive suppression on the internet of the Hunter Biden leaks. This blog has been suffering a ratcheting of social media suppression for years, which reached its apogee […]

Kevin Gosztola’s Coverage on Shadowproof
