Julian Assange News:
  • William Blum, expert on CIA assassination plots, wrote on how Julian Assange is a major target of the U.S. Government.
  • Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Corrigan Maguire, who visited Julian Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy last month, wrote on her experiences and why people should stand up for Mr Assange.
  • An article in WikiLeaks Etc. dissects a piece by The Guardian and how it left out major points about Julian Assange's Oxford Union speech in order to smear his character. A number of people, including Thomas Drake and Annie Machon, signed a short letter to The Guardian noting that Mr Assange has many allies, despite The Guardian's misleading title.
  • A photo set has been published of support for Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy, from June 2012 to the present day.

Bradley Manning News:
