Today, marks Julian Assange's 51st birthday, and third consecutive year in maximum security prison, without crime.
In fact, the publisher originally won his case in January of 2021, and has only remained imprisoned at the behest of the United States, who seeks to extradite the publisher and use him as a vehicle to destroy first amendment rights and press protections the world over.
Today is a solemn day.
It is a day in which we are reminded that the balance of power surely exists out of favor of the common citizen.
That the egalitarian idea of equality has yet to be actualized.
We stand only with the crumbling edifice of this in tow. A system that sharply veers toward protecting an elite class of criminals, while punitively punishing all who would seek a better world with different masters.
In the case of Assange, more than a decade has been spent ruthlessly persecuting him and attempting to malign/kidnap/kill him in any way possible. Conversations were had at the highest levels about assassinating him. Discussions within the US government took place over murdering him on foreign soil, even as the US DOJ planned to serve him with a superseding indictment based off of the testimony of a sociopathic pedophile the FBI had hired and granted immunity to for unrelated crimes against children.
The Assange case has put on full display for the World, the decrepit and false nature of what is being done to people under the guise of "justice". It has shown us, as a society, as a collective of people of all ages, of medical professionals, of journalists and reporters, exactly how far we have to go.
The price of speaking truth to power, of embarrassing it before the world, seems to be an endless amount of state-sanctioned murderous intent directed at the individual and all those surrounding them.
Assange's family is at stake here too.
As are your own.
Because once the extradition they are seeking has gone through, they will have effectively set precedent for all the illegal and heinous acts they actively attempted on foreign soil.
Far more is at stake than people realize.
