In a tweet this morning Wikileaks confirmed Assange can now see his lawyers and will have meetings with them over the next few days. This is good news after Assange was held for 11 days without any visits. The question now being raised is if he is getting the health care he needs as he was in dire need of a root canal and an MRI on his shoulder according to doctors.
May 2nd Assange will be sentenced on the breaking bail charge in the UK as well as his first extradition hearing. The process can take up to 5 years.
Many human rights organizations and activists around the world are voicing their concerns about the illegal detainment of this journalist and publisher. Many truth tellers throughout history have been silenced. It seems our world has never valued integrity and honesty but has always cared more to be coddled and lied to. After all, who wants to deal with the idea their leaders are liars and evil?
Only a great movement by the people will save this hero from torture and wrongful punishment now. We must rise up and fight.
