On the 50th day of the 24/7 Vigil, I participated in this discussion hosted by George Galloway – expelled from  British Labour Party for his his opposition to the illegal (U. N.) immoral (Pope JP2) Neo Con Invasion of Iraq that finished off Saddam government. The Clinton Liberals had already destroyed Iraqi Civil Society with genocidal sanctions! 

With Gaddafi gone & Assad to go – the defeat of Arab Nationalism by  Modernist Capitalism led by the U. S. in alliance with Saudi variety of Pre-Modernist Islam is near complete! .

 The US/UK Empire will soon be getting back to doing what it does best – killing Catholics in Latin America with a Post- Brexit recolonisation. Australian anti- war publisher Julian Assange appears to be roadkill in these seismic imperial shifts! 

Julian remains resolute, I saw his profile through the window the other day – laughing!

Some talking points: – Why is the UK refusing to comply with the UN’s Working Group findings stating that Julian Assange should be released? – Will the disregard of these UN Working Group findings affect the legitimacy of various democratic institutions in the UK? – Is Assange’s struggle for freedom a sign of growing authoritarianism in the West? – What is behind the Ecuadorian government’s change of stance on Assange, given that he was permitted refuge 5 years ago?

  3. Subject: VID–Interview with Ciaron O’Reilly as 24/7 Solidarity moves with Julian Assange to Belmarsh Prison

    Hi Folks,

    As you maybe aware on the 138th day of my 24/7 Solidarity Vigil with Julian Assange outside Ecuadorian embassy/London – I had to go to Dublin on urgent family business.
    4 hours after I left the traitorous Ecuadorian government and British Special Branch moved against Julian extracting him from the embassy.

    By the time I returned at 2 am Saturday April 13-Julian was in Belmarsh Category A maximum security prison near Woolwich (South) London.

    We cleaned the Alley, hired a van that was just the length of my “Coffin Crib” & I lay on top of the box in the dark under a pile of material including a bicycle for the 90 minute drive across town. I can’t recall ever wanting to be an astronaut as a child.

    Anyways, this is interview is conducted on my first day living on a Traffic Island at the entrance of Belmarsh Prison – confining Julian Assange! *He’s in there for us, We’re on the streets for him!”

    *You can an financially contribute to this ongoing solidarity through my Go Fund Me Page

    I’m presently focusing on local solidarity organising

    • I couldn’t work out why we are discussing Assange’s guilt or innocence on a range of matters while the helicopter pilots go free for murdering unarmed civilians in Baghdad, or why George W can go to parties and get blind drunk or not without a single hand laid upon him.

      Photo: Sapper Jamie Larcombe and his partner. Larcombe, 21, from the 1st Combat Engineer Regiment, was killed on February 20, 2011 in the Mirabad Valley region of Uruzgan Province.

      The song ‘I dream of snakes’ at the end of this piece is played by “Jumping Fences” and the first verse translates as:

      There are men who struggle for a day
      and they are good.
      There are men who struggle for a year
      and they are better.
      There are men who struggle many years,
      and they are better still.
      But there are those who struggle all their lives:
      These are the indispensable ones.
      — Bertolt Brecht

      The song was composed by Silvio Rodriguez

      Then a friend reminded me: “Because not only do the victors write the history, but they also prosecute in the courts.”

      That said, here are my concerns.

      I have read a little about the sex allegations on and off since 2010 when the allegations were made by two women. The facts stated say that Assange refused the plea of one woman to use a condom during sex. That he ‘interfered’ with a condom with the second and later, while she was asleep, began unprotected sex with her. Both women asked that he submit to an STD test which he didn’t.

      I think that on these facts alone, if true, he is guilty of sexual misconduct and should be held accountable for it. If true, I think what he did was rape.

      However I can’t see how Assange can be held to account for rape while locked up in a terrorist cell in Belmarsh Prison awaiting extradition to the US. I think the two women in Sweden were the victims of a ‘sting’, their experiences with Assange were used to manipulate a situation where he could be prosecuted by the US Attorney General for releasing classified information with the assistance of Chelsea Manning. Manning refused to be a party to any of it and that is why she is locked up again even though Obama pardoned her. They may crack her yet … but they already have all the info needed to prosecute Assange. Their problem is that they can’t legally get hold of him. He eluded them for 7 years with the help of an anti-yankee Ecuadorian government. But in the end his mental and physical health suffered and the authorities used this to get him out of the embassy. When I saw his face last week as he was dragged from the embassy I was shocked by the toll that it had taken upon him.

      This could indeed be ‘the last train’ for a person who revealed to the world the atrocities of the Iraq war but who also, by releasing a cache of Hillary Clinton’s emails before the presidential election, might have contributed to the election of Trump – which is an international disaster. Mind you, I do not think Clinton would have been much better, if at all.

      For what it is worth, that is my take on the long sad story of Julian Assange.
