Julian Assange News:
  • Julian Assange was listed as one of Reporters Without Borders "100 Information Heroes", a list of individuals who "help to promote the freedom... through their courageous work or activism".
  • During an appearance on the radio programme "A Rational Fear", former Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr was asked about Julian Assange. He said that Australia has "no standing in that case", but his personal view is that "he's been there for too long and it would be appropriate, simply based on the humanity of the case, for the Swedish public prosecutor to beat a path to the Venezuelan Embassy and interview him there." [An audience member corrected him that Assange is in the Ecuadorian Embassy.]
