Vivienne Westwood protests for Assange in London

Fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, dressed in yellow, was locked into a giant bird cage outside England’s Old Bailey court on Tuesday, in a show of support for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. ’I am Julian Assange. I am the canary in the cage. If I die down the coal mine from poisonous gas, that’s the signal’, Westwood said. Assange is wanted by U.S. authorities to stand trial for 18 offences.

"To some, Assange is a hero for exposing what supporters cast as abuse of power by modern states and for championing free speech. But to others, he is a dangerous rebel who has undermined U.S. security" "Assange made international headlines in early 2010 when WikiLeaks published a classified U.S. military video showing a 2007 attack by Apache helicopters in Baghdad that killed a dozen people, including two Reuters news staff." While governments across the world question why Assange did what he did, no state is willing to question why the US brazenly gunned down a dozen people and 2 journalists.
