WikiLeaks’ Assange arrested at Ecuador embassy in London

Police in London have arrested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorean embassy on a court warrant dating back to 2012. WikiLeaks accused Ecuador of breaching international law by withdrawing his asylum and said the country’s ambassador to London had ’invited’ police into the embassy building to carry out the arrest. Russia accused Britain of ’strangling freedom’ with Assange’s arrest.

'Assange was arrested on a warrant from 2012 for failing to surrender to the court.' wtf? surrender to the court based on what? This is like being charged resisting arrest without a reason for an arrest in the first place.

Telling the truth can be a very dangerous action when it threatens the cover of lies from governments around the world. Very bad day for independent journalism. MSM no change.

so he apparently behaved himself for over 6 years, but then starts acting out when there is more pressure applied to get him out? uh huh that's believable /s I am not sure what is going to happen, but knowing the UK and the EU (Sweden) it isn't going to be good.

This man did more to help expose the international war crimes of the U.S than anyone else in history. He most certainly is a hero.

Knowing how draconian the laws in the UK are getting he was probably humming Aerosmith's "dude looks like a lady" too close to a magazine with Caitlyn Jenner on it and someone in the embassy reported him for it. All kidding aside this is absolutely terrible and terrifying. Julian Assange should be a free man.

Tim Pool's video on the situation just came out, it's sitting in my sub feed, and YT's claiming it's "unavailable." Can one of y'all go try to click on it and tell me if it's the same for you?

Why is it that the real journalist get arrested while the fake journalist get to live free and continue their mass enslavement of the world? (Yes this is rhetorical)

No one can forget about this. If they can come for one for telling the truth they will come for all before you know it. Julian Assange must be freed.
