‘Psychologically Tortured’ Assange Victim of British ‘Rogue State’, London Conference Hears

Three months before his extradition hearing, imprisoned WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange was defended as a pioneering journalist punished for exposing crimes of the state.

The following are remarks given at a conference on Thursday night at St. Pancras Church in London by some of Assange’s biggest defenders, including journalist and filmmaker John Pilger, former British diplomat Craig Murray, the UN special rapporteur on torture, Nils Melzer, clinical psychologist Lissa Johnson, former Ecuadorian diplomat Fidel Narvaez, Lisa Longstaff, spokesperson for Women Against Rape and historian Mark Curtis.

“I am extremely concerned for his life” – Nils Melzer describes Assange’s “Psychological Torture”

“We live in what has become a rogue state!” – Craig Murray’s full #FreeTheTruth speech

Fidel Narvaez: “Julian’s case sets a precedent for the institution of political asylum”

Historian: Corbyn’s media treatment “The biggest propaganda campaign since the war”

“You can’t adequately medically treat a torture victim while continuing to torture them”

“This is mob rule!” Top Women’s Group spokesperson Lisa Longstaff makes defense of Julian Assange

“When we greet each other, I can feel his ribs” – John Pilger describes visiting Assange in Belmarsh

The sporadic musings, ramblings, and rants of a middle aged man who isn't exactly thrilled with the direction America is taking today. I'm extremely opinionated where news and politics are concerned. I call it like I see it and I don't mince any words. Life is too short to stay quiet.
