A Letter Regarding the Immediate Release of Julian Assange to the US and the UK

To the governing body of the United Kingdom:

Now that Sweden has dropped all inquiries in the Julian Assange case, how can you arrest him for missing a bail appointment on charges that were never filed?  Please take a closer look at your case and the money you are wasting keeping him in the Embassy and release him. Truly, he did nothing wrong.  If in fact you are keeping him there to extradite him to the United States, stand up for yourself! Wikileaks published information, they did not steal it or hack the US government to get it. The UN ruling states that keeping Assange in the Embassy is inhumane. Is that really how you want the world to view the UK?

To President Trump and the Department of Justice:

You represent the American people and the Constitution of the United States that clearly states a right to freedom of speech and free press. By trying to charge wikileaks and Julian Assange, you are violating those rights. You were appointed to office to stand up for justice and the American way. By seeking to prosecute a news source such as Wikileaks, you violate the First Amendment which states:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Wikileaks has done nothing wrong except publish information that the people of this country needed to know. Our government is controlled by the people, not the other way around. By going after a news organization like Wikileaks, you commit a great crime against the citizens of the United States.

Also, if you choose to prosecute Assange and the Wikileaks staff, you must also arrest any news organization that has published any leak over the past 10 years including but not limited to New York Times, Washington Post and CNN.

I ask that the United Kingdom and the United States drop this mess and release Assange to continue to publish and edit Wikileaks that he might once again be free. It is only right that he see his children and family again and feel the sun on his face. Even criminals in prison are allowed to go outside and exercise freely in the prison yards. By violating his human rights you violate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which was put in place on December 10, 1948.

By allowing Assange and his staff to be free once again, you do a great service to the people of our countries and the world.

Thank you.

Why We Should Support Wikileaks.org

The Reasons to Support Wikileaks, Julian Assange and Edward Snowden

I could go on and on talking about this particular subject, but I am going to try to just stick to the basic facts.

  1. Wikileaks informs the public. Most governments, whether its the US or not, hide things from the general public. Basically, the Shadow government does things that are illegal. A leaker such as Snowden, brings these crimes to light. Many consider these leakers to be traitors or spies, but in certain cases, they see something wrong going on and report it. Watergate is a good example. You had a leaker who talked to a journalist who exposed what was going on.
  2. Wikileaks is against war crimes. In 2010, Wikileaks and Julian Assange exposed the US government in Afghanistan. They were killing citizens and other heinous acts. Sometimes, war cannot be helped, but shooting sprees on citizens is wrong.
  3. Do you dislike Hillary Clinton? Why? Wikileaks exposed her criminal activities as well as John Podesta and #Pizzagate. Also we learned about #spiritcooking this way.  Do you support pedophilia?
  4. Wikileaks also brought to light the fact that Hillary and Obama created ISIS and armed them.  This again is criminal activity by government officials. This enables the public to see the truth and to get rid of the problem. As individuals, we can educate ourselves by researching these items on the web, which leads to us not being ignorant.
  5. Wikileaks has never been proven wrong in 10 years.  This a fact.
  6. Wikileaks has been attacked and Assange put in prison for exposing the truth.  Sweden made up lies about two fake rapes and Britian arrested him. Basically, they were considering expediting to the US to stand trial for “TELLING THE TRUTH”.  Julian is only the messenger. In fact, Edward Snowden was just a leaker who saw that the government was spying on it’s own citizens. Now he is in asylum in Russia.
  7. For the past 5 years, Assange has had to seek political asylum to avoid possible torture or death in the United States. Some say the US wouldn’t torture him, but Wikileaks exposed the US torturing Manning, so why wouldn’t they torture Assange to get names of leakers?
  8. Julian and Wikileaks are not rich. His huge legal fees has depleted any savings he had and if released, he would rely on us ot support him and his work.

In essence, everything Wikileaks has done in the past and will do in the future relies on our donations to the cause.  Please if you can afford to, go to justice4assange.com and donate. Or go to wikileaks.org and buy a t-shirt or book from their shop.free-assange

What Is a Government Gray Op PsyOp?

In researching PsyOps used by the federal government, I found that many have no clue what they are, let alone what their mission is.  First of all, the definition of PsyOp (which literally stands for psychological operation or psychological warfare), is basically a way to influence someone else’s behavior, emotions, thought processes and objective reasoning.  In other words, they use information they have collected on the human mind to influence the way a person feels about certain things.  First used in military operations, the government discovered it could be used to influence the general populations behavior and how they feel.  There are 3 different types of pysops but this article is about the use of Gray Ops, or the Pied Piper strategy commonly used in social media such as television, the news and the internet. The propaganda used to influence the populace during an election period to vote for a candidate is a good example of a psyop.download.jpg

Here is an excerpt from my article How Intelligence Agencies Undermine Support for Whistleblowers and Publishers :

First,  I have included a copy of part of the strategy used by First of America in 2010 and the following intel agencies ( Palantir Technology, HBGary & Berico Holdings) in hopes of destroying Wikileaks. As you know, this strategy didn’t work.0_BLnRbyxZCukTEmc1.jpg0_iFD4zKwzZVebx62b.jpg

Intelligence Agencies across the world have used technology and their vast ability to collect information on the human psyche in order to better achieve their goal of world domination.  By using techniques,  they are able to manipulate the average citizen into believing nearly anything they choose.  It’s simply a form of brainwashing used on a higher level.

By first establishing an audience that begins to believe in what they are releasing, even using actual facts at first, they begin to make people believe their Pied Piper scheme.  They will naturally lead their followers to believe they are on their side with statements that shows support of the followers opinions and beliefs.  Once a large following has been put into place, they begin to drop statements that will begin to undermine support of people like Edward Snowden, KimDotCom, Wikileaks, Julian Assange and others.

A government Operative will never be targeted by intelligence agencies unlike truth tellers like Wikileaks and Julian Assange.  Their will be no false allegations from the governments.  Supporters will be left alone.  People who back the govt op will never be marked as criminal or face jail time. You will never see an FBI investigation or CIA going after them as whistleblowers even though they may release truth. They will make you believe you are getting hidden facts and that you are “in the know” of what is really going on, when in fact, they never really gave you anything to begin with but “clues”.

Is this strategy starting to make sense?  Often, a gray pysop will target other supporters of a group in order to bring more attention to itself and make themselves look more legitimate. They may undermine the other supporters with lies, by doctoring statements made by other supporters or simply by degrading them.  By misleading others into believing these supporters are fake, they bring more support to themselves.  They may claim to be an insider or try to appear as an insider in the support system.  images.jpg

A pied piper strategy is very similar to the old story. By misleading others into believing they are on their side and infiltrating as a supporter of a cause such as #FreeAssange or #DrainTheSwamp or #Resist, they are able to establish a base with other supporters.  By making them believe they are fighting for the same objective they win faith in themselves.  Once established they begin to slowly mislead these supporters through lies and the mischief they cause which undermines support for the cause which they have chosen to destroy.

According to wikipedia: (link source)

Gray PSYOP[edit]

The source of the gray PSYOP product is deliberately ambiguous.

The true source (U.S. Government) is not revealed to the target audience. The activity engaged in plausibly appears to emanate from a non-official American source, or an indigenous, non-hostile source, or there may be no attribution.

Gray is that information whose content is such that the effect will be increased if the hand of the U.S. Government and in some cases any American participation are not revealed. It is simply a means for the U.S. to present viewpoints which are in the interest of U.S. foreign policy, but which will be acceptable or more acceptable to the intended target audience than will an official government statement.[5][dead link]

Also from wikipedia:

PSYOP can encourage popular discontent with the opposition’s leadership and by combining persuasion with a credible threat, degrade an adversary’s ability to conduct or sustain military operations. They can also disrupt, confuse, and protract the adversary’s decision-making process, undermining command and control.[1] When properly employed, PSYOP have the potential to save the lives of friendly or enemy forces by reducing the adversary’s will to fight. By lowering the adversary’s morale and then its efficiency, PSYOP can also discourage aggressive actions by creating disaffection within their ranks, ultimately leading to surrender.”

When you reduce supporters willingness to fight by disrupting, confusing and controlling the thoughts of these individuals, they undermine the support for the causes in which they want to destroy.

Another way to reduce support is to use “Divide and Conquer” against supporters,  THe PsyOp would look for a belief that will separate supporters into two groups and thus weaken the force of that support.  This technique is being used currently against Julian Assange supporters through political bias.

The true victims of psychological operations are the movement itself as well as the followers of that movement.  Just remember:

  1. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  2. If the only evidence against someone comes from the same source or followers of that source, investigate.
  3. Make sure it’s not a trick to undermine your support of an individual or movement.
  4. Obvious doctoring of information or DM’s.
  5. More often than not, the op will be an anonymous source with very little personal information available.

Information from this possible operative will rarely be directly misleading but will use suggestive ideas.

Also:

  1. Operative will profess to view share values and belief system as the audience it wants to influence. It hopes to establish a devoted following that believes every statement made by the Op.
  2. Subtly will shift focus from the movement to attacks on high profile followers of the movement, or anyone who may contradict it’s claims.
  3. Often, the movement they engage in will be a target of the government such as Wikileaks.  Regardless of information it releases, it will not be a target of that government unlike other high profile supporters/
  4. Like the Pied Piper story, it will first mislead the audience into believing it is a good source of information and then subtly begin its real campaign to undermine support.
  5. Often, the op will target supporters rather than the actual movement in order to gain more influence.

My advice to the reader? Think and decide for yourself before believing what someone tells you.  Look at more than the evidence given you by one or two sources.  Look at the supporter or supporters being attacked.  Quite often, the ones being attacked are not what they are being attacked as.

Despair for Assange

The suffering you endure causes me great despair

Sometimes it seems as though no one else cares

That you have given them the truth and exposed the lies

Can they hear our cries?

To free you has become my ultimate goal

Without your voice this world is not whole

They’ve tried to destroy you before, they cannot see…

All the people who support you like me.

I will not let them forget you, I will fight to the end

Until you are free, my dear, dear friend.

 

Letter Example with Addresses to President, VP, DOJ and Senate

Dear ——,

Julian Assange is in great jeopardy and it appears that you may be the only one who can help him. His asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy is threatened and he is living under intolerable conditions. Yet, if he leaves, he is exposed to arrest and imprisonment in the US. Senior US law enforcement officials have stated that they intend to do anything they can do to imprison him in the US. In recent days heavily armored police vehicles have surrounded the Embassy and the media is reporting that his arrest is imminent. You can prevent this and we urge you to free Assange.

The relentless attacks on Assange and Wikileaks threatens the future of a free press that is the bulwark of democracy.

Assange has been held without charge inside the Ecuadorian Embassy for more than 2700 days and he has been gagged since March 28th. All the while, not a shred of evidence has ever been found that he has done anything but publish the truth. He is relentlessly attacked by those who fear the truth will put them in jeopardy and those who cannot accept Hillary Clinton’s defeat.

We urge you to take action. Only you can end this travesty.

Thank you,

About Freeing Julian Assange: What I intended to say in my speech in front of the White House

Julian Assange is a lot of things to a lot of people. He is a truth teller, a journalist and publisher and a true courageous warrior for the people. He is the most persecuted publisher in American history and posssibly the world.

Our government seeks to destroy this man because he exposed their corruption and war crimes. He stood up against their lies with documents that were verified and in vengeance, they responded by attacking his character. By falsely accusing him, they attempted to destroy his reputation and character and thus enabled the UK government to illegaly detain him for over 7+ years.

If we do nothing to stop this violation of human rights and free speech, what happens to Julian will set a precedent for other journalists who expose through truth and soon, all we will have is government controlled media and propaganda. It is so important that we as citizens have government transparency to show us what our government is doing behind our backs. Government corruption has run rampant in recent decades and Julian Assange and Wikileaks have made it known.

In 2012, under threats of extradition to the US and the possibility of being tortured, Julian sought political asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. He has been illegally detained there ever since without fresh air, sunlight or proper medical care. Do you know why? Because our government wants to charge him with espionage for publishing the truth!

On March 28th of this year, Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno issued a gag order for Assange taking away his rights to internet access, phone and visitors. In essence, he is now in solitary confinement. According to the UN Nelson Mandela Act, anything over 15 days is considered torture. This has to end! Julian Assange is being tortured for being a journalist!

Mr. Assange has not been able to watch his young children grow up there or be there in the capacity a father wants to be for their beloved children.  He has been without family for just as long.  This is cruel not only to him but to his kids and his loving mother.  As a mother myself I can tell you how it hurts to see your child suffer.  Christine Assange has been a stronghold for supporters, denying herself in the process while supporting her son.  We must end this family tragedy and give them a chance to grow and prosper as families should.

Standing up for Assange isn’t just about one man.  It is about free speech and free press.  It is about a violation of human rights to an individual who could be me or you at any time.  Allowing the persecution of a publisher and journalist sets a precedent for future truth tellers.  It enables our governments to inhibit free press and our right to know.  If we allow them to destroy one, we allow them to destroy all.  We will only be seeing government propaganda that is fed to us.  We will all live in a fascist state where all our rights do not exist.  Do we want this for ourselves and future generations? The answer is NO!

By silencing Julian they are silencing you! We must demand his persecution end today! Julian is the voice of the people! Assange is an example of integrity and courage. He stood up to the most powerful government in the world and didn’t back down because of their threats of harm. We cannot let this man slowly fade away. We must stand up and say “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” We must demand that Trump drop all charges and the grand jury against Julian Assange or issue a pre-emptive pardon in order to free him. We must supply him with security to protect him against those who seek to destroy him.

What our government didn’t realize is that by coercing Ecuador into gagging Julian, they made our movement even bigger and we are taking it to the streets all over the world and we will continue this movement until he is free of his bondage in the Embassy.  We will stand and fight.

My message to President Trump:

Sir, I believed enough in you to vote for you in 2016.  You stated 150 times that you loved Wikileaks and its editor Julian Assange. Yet you have done nothing to help this man or free him in a year and a half. Sir, this disgusts me and makes me feel that I voted for a hypocrite.  You have kept many of your promises but this promise is to the First Amendment rights to free speech and free press. You vowed to uphold the Constitution.

You also are a humanitarian who stands for human rights of the individuals as seen in previous actions.  However, this man has been illegally detained for almost 8 years without fresh air, sunlight or proper medical care.  He has not seen his children since before this terrible atrocity took place and he was framed by the Swedish government and now is being held against his rights by the United Kingdom.  He has been in solitary confinement imposed by the President of Ecuador since March 28th of this year without internet access, phone or rights to visitors.  Sir, this is torture!

I am asking you as your voter and have confidence that you will listen to the people crying out for this man.  Please, sir, open your heart and help free this man with either a preemptive pardon or telling your DOJ to drop all charges, allegations and the grand jury against him and Wikileaks staff.

Thank you Mr. President

To Julian Assange:

We will not let them destroy you nor will we forget what they have done and are doing.  We will fight for you and your staff until the day the persecution ends and you are free to live your life and prosper!  Thank you for all you do for truth and justice!

 

A poem of freedom for Assange

I’ve watched as they try to destroy what is you and fought for your release,

You stand alone against the powerful, will they ever cease?

To end your persecution, allow justice to proceed,

Give your children what they deserve and need?

They say the truth will set you free but it’s only made them hate

A man of integrity and courage, there is no debate

Free Assange cried out in the crowds who gather to fight your duress

We fight for your freedom, free speech and free press

Will they ever hear our pleas to end this atrocity

Or will justice never be served,  only agony?

I will fight for you until my last breath, you will see

Until we can say Assange is finally free

 

How Intelligence Agencies Undermine Support of Whistleblowers and their Publishers

Recently the Q-Anon phenomena has been brought to my attention through constant tweeting by followers who seem to view them as a sort of information source for all things Trump.  I kept out of the discussion as it was not doing any harm for these people to follow a horoscope like Anonymous but recent events from Q have come to light which have made me believe that they are very much a govt psyops invented to move the people in the wrong direction. images.jpg

Suzie Dawson has covered this in her series of tweets found here. (@suzi3d thread on Q Anon ) However, that is not what this thread is about.  It is more about how the NSA and CIA can use something like this to mislead people and undermine support of whistleblowers and publishers like Wikileaks.

First,  I have included a copy of part of the strategy used by First of America in 2010 and the following intel agencies ( Palantir Technology, HBGary & Berico Holdings) in hopes of destroying Wikileaks. As you know, this strategy didn’t work.0_BLnRbyxZCukTEmc1.jpg0_iFD4zKwzZVebx62b.jpg

Intelligence Agencies across the world have used technology and their vast ability to collect information on the human psyche in order to better achieve their goal of world domination.  By using techniques, such as Suzi Dawson mentions in her thread, they are able to manipulate the average citizen into believing nearly anything they choose.  It’s simply a form of brainwashing used on a higher level.

By first establishing an audience that begins to believe in what they are releasing, even using actual facts at first, they begin to make people believe their Pied Piper scheme.  They will naturally lead their followers to believe they are on their side with statements that shows support of the followers opinions and beliefs.  Once a large following has been put into place, they begin to drop statements that will begin to undermine support of people like Edward Snowden, KimDotCom, Wikileaks, Julian Assange and others.

Recently, a statement made by QAnon was simply “We have the Source” which many believed meant they had Julian Assange.  The statement in itself is not direct but misleads the reader to believe they have Julian.  Another recent statement definitively stated that Julian was free and Wikileaks was compromised by the CIA.  This is just an example of how what appears to be a good source of info becomes a false source that followers believe without a doubt. This did not come about until Wikileaks itself questioned who QAnon was and Julian himself was gagged by the Ecuador government.  Of course, right now, Julian cannot defend himself on Twitter because he is not allowed internet access, phone, or visitors to do so. It is also suspicious that the group that originally was hunting down Edward Snowden was known as the Q group.  If that doesn’t raise eyebrows, I don’t know what will.

By first spreading true information, intelligence agencies, posing as anonymous sources inside the government, are able to bring about an audience of believers who are looking for someone to make their wishes come true.  #DrainTheSwamp #LockHerUp #Justice4Assange are what many want and are not getting.  They give supposed dates that this may or may not happen with clues and codes that really have no definitive statement in them but allow the reader to “suppose” or come up with their own conclusions of what it means.  That way, followers can never say, “AHA! They are wrong!”.  Instead, they tell themselves, I just misunderstood the clue or code. By getting the reader to come to their own conclusions of happenings in the news and on social media, it enables that psyop to create a false atmosphere of truth.

A government Operative will never be targeted by intelligence agencies unlike truth tellers like Wikileaks and Julian Assange.  Their will be no false allegations from the governments.  Supporters will be left alone.  People who back the govt op will never be marked as criminal or face jail time. You will never see an FBI investigation or CIA going after them as whistleblowers even though they may release truth. They will make you believe you are getting hidden facts and that you are “in the know” of what is really going on, when in fact, they never really gave you anything to begin with but “clues”.

In order for this type of psyop to work it must be based originally in reality.  By showing false support in a narrative such as #MAGA or #DrainTheSwamp:, they enable themselves to destroy those they choose to destroy.  All statements must be based on something the devotees believe.  It must be a credible truth constructed in a manner that it cannot be questioned by the reader.  The source must also not be known. This is known as a GRAYOP. This op is intended to sway large audiences into believing a government produced narrative that is actually false.  Example would be weapons if mass destruction in Iraq.

3 ways this is used is through the news, social media and simply word of mouth.  It is more believable when you hear from someone who believes in it.  Think about the story of the Pied Piper.  How he made the city believe he was a savior but later was found out to be evil and stole their children.  This is what a govt operative is. It misleads people to believe it will somehow save them from what is bothering them the most. It makes you believe that it is helping rescue you when in fact, its objective is to do the exact opposite.

 

Wikipedia describes psychological operations here psyops on wikipedia

The purpose of United States psychological operations is to induce or reinforce behavior favorable to U.S. objectives. They are an important part of the range of diplomatic, informational, military and economic activities available to the U.S. They can be utilized during both peacetime and conflict. There are three main types: strategic, operational and tactical. Strategic PSYOP include informational activities conducted by the U.S. government agencies outside of the military arena, though many utilize Department of Defense (DOD) assets. Operational PSYOP are conducted across the range of military operations, including during peacetime, in a defined operational area to promote the effectiveness of the joint force commander’s (JFC) campaigns and strategies. Tactical PSYOP are conducted in the area assigned to a tactical commander across the range of military operations to support the tactical mission against opposing forces.

PSYOP can encourage popular discontent with the opposition’s leadership and by combining persuasion with a credible threat, degrade an adversary’s ability to conduct or sustain military operations. They can also disrupt, confuse, and protract the adversary’s decision-making process, undermining command and control.[1] When properly employed, PSYOP have the potential to save the lives of friendly or enemy forces by reducing the adversary’s will to fight. By lowering the adversary’s morale and then its efficiency, PSYOP can also discourage aggressive actions by creating disaffection within their ranks, ultimately leading to surrender.”

When you reduce supporters willingness to fight by disrupting, confusing and controlling the thoughts of these individuals, they undermine the support for the causes in which they want to destroy.  By fabricating stories about those causes such as keeping whistleblowers from facing prosecution because they are “free” or compromised, it enables the agencies to better destroy those involved.  Not just by taking away your willingness to fight for them but by you not supporting them monetarily.  Many activists, whistleblowers and publishers rely on donations. If donations dwindle they are unable to support their own legal defense because they have no funds to pay for attorneys.

The only way to end this type of operation is to know what it is, think for yourself and instead support those it targets.

“The truth will set you free”

An Open Letter To President Trump Regarding the Gagging of Julian Assange

Dear Mr President:

First, I would like to thank you for bringing back jobs to the US and for all you have already done for the citizens of this great country.  I am proud to have you as my President.

However, a month ago, a great man was gagged by Ecuador after receiving his citizenship in that country.  Julian Assange has been put in solitary confinement in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.  President Lenin Moreno removed his internet access, his ability to make phone calls and his rights to receive visitors other than his lawyers.  This is a clear violation of Free Speech and Free Press as it was done to silence the voice of a publisher and journalist.  As you are an advocate and protector of the Constitution of the United States of America and vowed to uphold this great piece of our history, I know you understand the ramifications of this unconstitutional act.

Mr. President, according to the United Nations Nelson Mandela Act, solitary confinement over 15 days is considered torture.  According to this PBS article seen here (PBS article on torture ) and my article that I researched thoroughly (the effects of solitary confinement ), this gag order will leave permanent irreversible damage to Julian Assange.  Mr. President, Assange saved us from Hillary by exposing her corruption, it is very possible, she would have won if not for the DNC emails and Podesta emails that Wikileaks released prior to the election.  Please read the above articles on torture and ask yourself, “does this man really deserve this?”  He has been detained for almost 8 years without proper medical care, sunlight or fresh air as well as being unable to see his own family. Is that not punishment enough for a man who simply published documents given to him by Daniel Manning aka Chelsea Manning?

President Obama gave clemency to Manning before he left office Mr. President, to a man many consider a traitor due to his taking of documents that he gave to Wikileaks and yet he walks free and even is running for Senate.  Why should an innocent publisher and journalist suffer for doing what is simply releasing the truth to the public as any good journalist does?

Mainstream Media and the DNC have targeted Wikileaks, Julian Assange and you in an attempt to remove you from office and have gone so far in recent days as to try and sue all of you for the loss of the election.  This witch hunt must end now!  Wikileaks and Julian Assange are being targeted just as you have been.  Perhaps, you don’t agree with their ideas or their beliefs, but isn’t that the great part of America? That we can disagree and even discuss our ideas without punishment?  Our Constitution protects our right to think for ourselves and speak those thoughts.  Why should it be any different for an outside publisher?

Mr. President, on behalf of Wikileaks supporters worldwide, I ask you to free this man and see to it that he is reconnected to the world and his family.  Stand up for what is right and good and free the very person who helped you win the Presidency and Make America Great Again.  Be the President who is known for upholding the Constitution and fighting for our rights! I thank you and the world thanks you!

How Solitary Confinement Effects the Mind: Plight of Julian Assange

Julian Assange has been without internet, phone or visitors for 28 days as of tomorrow, this is an extremely wicked and cruel act against an innocent journalist and publisher.  According the the UN’s Nelson Mandela Act, anything over 15 days in solitary is considered torture.  I want to explain to you what complete isolation does to the mind and the body and how this will effect Julian’s current state.assange_time_secret_wikileaks-e1476855073934

It is a proven fact that lonely people are more prone to certain physical ailments including high blood pressure, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and are more prone to infection. Mentally it has been reported to play with your sense of time, cause hallucinations, and paranoia.  Many completely isolated individuals who had no meaningful human contact lost track of reality all together as studies have shown. In a study on other primates regarding isolation, they found that after only 30 days the monkeys became enormously disturbed and after a year were unable to have social contact of any kind. ( Reference for studies ) In fact, a good example of lack of proper human interaction would be the orphans in Romania who were literally mentally handicapped because they were never held or given affection. In fact, it has been proven that solitary confinement can drive a person literally crazy.

We are talking about permanent damage here folks.  It is not temporary and is considered torture for a reason. Most examples when introduced back into society have a lack of life skills and have lost the ability to relate to others as a normal individual would.  They are highly anxious around people, often paranoid and fearful, leaving them with no joy in every day tasks or happiness. What emerges from reports on solitary confinement is literally like reading a medieval novel about torture. Some even experience pyschosis afterwards.

And as Alexis Agathocleous from the Center for Constitutional Rights has aptly noted (link reference ) :

We know that keeping someone in solitary confinement puts them at very serious risk of descending into irreversible mental illness. That’s not tolerable in a society that values the dignity and humanity of all people, no matter whether they are incarcerated or not.

 

So you may be asking why this has been done to someone like Julian Assange?  It is simply to silence the truth.  Many have contemplated the real reasons behind Moreno’s gag order including

  1. He spoke about Catalonia and Spain pushed Ecuador into this act.
  2. Julian was going to testify in the case against Cambridge Analytics and Facebook in the well know court case.
  3. Ecuador is looking for help from the US government with security in Columbia and help with their failing economy.  Perhaps, it was a deal made behind closed doors.images (6)

Regardless of the reason, this man is being persecuted for simply doing what journalists should do.  He investigates what information is given to him and tells us about it.  This is not a crime.  He is not in prison but in an Embassy to keep him from being extradited for political reasons to the United States to face a fixed grand jury that would put him away for 45 years, the rest of his life.  His rights are being violated by the UK and now the very country that gave him asylum in the first place.

Lenin Moreno is literally guilty of torturing a man who his country offered protection through political asylum. Asylum is defined by the Collins English Dictionary as

“The protection granted by a nation to someone who has left their native country as a political refugee.”

Punishing a man for tweeting about his views and the truth is not protecting him.  Even prisoners in solitary confinement are allowed the occasional video conference with friends and family.  Ultimately, President Moreno will be known as the man who destroyed Julian Assange. He will be known for violating the human rights of one of his citizens (Assange was granted Ecuadorian citizenship a few months ago).  He will be known for making a hypocrisy of free press and free speech if this act of suffering continues.

Please contact the leaders in your country and demand they contact Ecuador and request the reconnection of Julian Assange to the world and his family.104775233-2ED1-REQ-Assange-R1-101617.1910x1000
