Julian Assange // Amnesty Watch

Temporibus autem quibusdam et aut officiis debitis aut rerum necessitatibus saepe eveniet ut et voluptates repudiandae.





Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has been detained in the United Kingdom’s Belmarsh Prison since April 2019, raising serious questions about the legality of his detainment. Assange has been a controversial figure since WikiLeaks began publishing classified documents in 2010, exposing corruption, human rights abuses, and war crimes committed by various governments around the world. His detainment brings to light critical issues regarding freedom of the press, political asylum, and extraterritorial jurisdiction.


Firstly, Assange sought and was granted political asylum by Ecuador in 2012, fearing extradition to the United States, where he could face charges that might lead to the death penalty or life imprisonment. International law recognizes the right to seek asylum, and the United Nations’ 1951 Refugee Convention prohibits the refoulement of a refugee to a territory where his life or freedom would be threatened. Despite this, the Ecuadorian government, under President Lenin Moreno, controversially revoked Assange’s asylum in April 2019, leading to his arrest by British police. This revocation and subsequent arrest are dubious at best, as international law mandates that once asylum is granted, it cannot be arbitrarily revoked.


Secondly, the case against Assange revolves around his role in the publication of classified documents. However, it is crucial to recognize that Assange is a publisher and journalist. The charges against him set a dangerous precedent for press freedom, as they criminalize activities that journalists regularly engage in, such as receiving and publishing classified information. This has led many to argue that the charges against Assange are politically motivated and designed to stifle investigative journalism.


Finally, the extraterritorial application of U.S. law is deeply concerning. Assange is an Australian citizen who operated outside the United States, yet he faces extradition to the U.S. to stand trial for alleged offenses under U.S. law. This raises fundamental questions about jurisdiction and the extraterritorial application of national laws.


In conclusion, the detainment of Julian Assange raises significant legal and ethical concerns. From the revocation of his asylum to the implications for press freedom and the extraterritorial application of U.S. law, there are compelling reasons to argue that his detainment is illegal. It is essential to address these issues to uphold the principles of international law, human rights, and press freedom.

The CIA’s Plan to Assassinate Julian Assange

In 2021, Yahoo News reported that the CIA had discussed plans to kidnap or assassinate Julian Assange during the Trump administration. According to the report, senior officials within the CIA and the Trump administration had discussed various options to deal with the WikiLeaks founder, who was at the time taking refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. The discussions reportedly included proposals for kidnapping, poisoning, and even a shooting in the streets of London. These discussions were part of a broader effort by the CIA to label WikiLeaks as a “hostile non-state intelligence service,” which would then justify more aggressive actions against Assange and his organization.

The revelations about the CIA’s plans to assassinate Assange raised serious concerns about the lengths to which the US government is willing to go to silence its critics. It also raised questions about the legality and ethics of such actions. Many human rights organizations and legal experts have argued that the assassination of Assange would have been a clear violation of international law and an affront to the principles of democracy and freedom of the press.

The reports about the CIA’s plans to assassinate Julian Assange are deeply troubling and highlight the need for greater oversight and accountability within the intelligence community. It is essential that governments around the world respect the principles of international law and the rights of individuals, regardless of their actions or opinions.

Alexei Navalny is a Russian lawyer, anti-corruption activist, and opposition leader. He gained prominence in Russia and internationally for his investigations into corruption by Russian officials and his criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his government.

Navalny started his career as a lawyer and began blogging about corruption in 2008. In 2011, he started the Anti-Corruption Foundation, an organization dedicated to investigating and exposing corruption in Russia.

He has been arrested multiple times for his activism and has spent time in jail on several occasions. In 2013, he ran for mayor of Moscow and came in second with 27% of the vote, a remarkable achievement for an opposition candidate in Russia.

In 2020, Navalny was poisoned with a nerve agent while on a flight from Tomsk to Moscow. He was treated in Germany and made a full recovery. He returned to Russia in January 2021 and was immediately arrested upon arrival. He was subsequently sentenced to two and a half years in prison for violating the terms of a suspended sentence from a 2014 fraud conviction, a case that he and his supporters argue was politically motivated.

David McBride // Amnesty Watch




🟠 // Support David McBride Directly

David McBride, lawyer and whistleblower. He served in the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and completed two tours in Afghanistan. He is best known for leaking classified documents to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) that exposed alleged war crimes committed by Australian special forces in Afghanistan.


The documents, known as the “Afghan Files,” were the basis for a series of investigative reports published by ABC in 2017. The reports alleged that Australian special forces had killed unarmed civilians and prisoners in Afghanistan, and that these incidents were covered up by the ADF.


McBride was charged with multiple offences, including theft of commonwealth property, unauthorized disclosure of information, and breach of the Defence Act. He admitted to leaking the documents but argued that he did so in the public interest, as he believed that the ADF and the Australian government were engaged in a cover-up.


His case has raised important questions about the balance between national security and the public’s right to know, and has sparked debate about the need for stronger whistleblower protections in Australia.


As of September 2021, David McBride’s trial was ongoing, and he faced the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence if convicted. Please note that I am unable to provide any updates on his case or any other events that have occurred since that time
