E xactly who has Julian Assange betrayed? The charge of “traitor” applies to a person who has betrayed their country/govt “secrets”. Julian is NOT a USA citizen! He is an Australian national, being illegally imprisoned in a UK maximum prison, for “jumping bail,” now 6 months pass the original term of the farcical & ridiculous 500 days! On what authority have the UK/USA judiciary collusion have to continue the persecution of an Australian journalist? Where is the Australian govt in this case, defending, assisting and/or legally advocating for the protection of the rights of an Australian in a foreign court? Shame on our (Australian) govt & people, silence is compliance. The real guilty parties are not in the dock, they’re the ones conducting the bs “trial”! Thank you Graham (Elwood) & other independent journalists, who continue to bring this “kangaroo court” injustice, immoral & corrupt proceedings into the public arena whilst our “media” fails once again, here in Australia.
