Defend Julian Assange! Behind the witch-hunt of WikiLeaks

5 February 2011

The publication of US diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks provides an invaluable insight into the real state of international relations, the plots, conspiracies and crimes of the United States and other governments, and the mounting global tensions that threaten to spark new military conflicts.

The organisation’s founder, Julian Assange, has faced death threats from US politicians and media figures as well as calls for his trial and execution.

The British authorities are participating in efforts to extradite Assange to Sweden on trumped-up sex charges, where he will almost certainly face extradition to the US and a possible death sentence.

Much of what passes for the liberal or “left” milieu has either joined in the right-wing campaign against Assange or, in what amounts to the same thing, are silent as to the grave threat to democratic rights that is posed by this counter-attack by the imperialist powers.
