The injustice being served to Julian Assange is an injustice to us all and the torture being inflicted on him is torture for us all, at least all of us who truly care and oppose torture and injustice everywhere.
The response of the West’s governments to the plight of Julian Assange says a lot about their priorities and whose interests they serve, being the purveyors of police state security and permanent war. Clearly our politicians care little for their fellow citizens, even less for the principles of free press, due process and the rule of law, let alone freedom and democracy.
If the people had true representation and real influence over our governments, as in democracy, the world would be a very different place, where the dollars now spent on weapons and war would instead feed the poor, serve the people and drastically reduce inequality.
