JULIAN Assange needs help.
He has been arrested in London and is no longer in the Ecuadorian Embassy. He faces the prospect of extradition to the United States for publishing facts delivered to him as a journalist. The facts revealed systematic government corruption and war crimes.
He has been 'arbitrarily' detained for more than eight years. For the past year, he has been tortured by being in continuous solitary confinement, and being deprived of sunlight, contact with the outside world, and proper healthcare.
As an awarded and respected international journalist, he has never incorrectly published any news.
If he is extradited to the United States he can be held indefinitely, without trial, under the US National Defense Authorization Act.
Julian Assange is an Australian citizen who has committed no crime here. He must be brought home. He must be freed.
