The one-hour podcast covered the ins and outs of the movement, as well as in-depth discussion on the significance of WikiLeaks and Julian Assange; the topic of source protection; strategies on how to build a mass movement and the historical comparison to Nelson Mandela.
For five years now, WikiLeaks’ supporters have been debating the merits or the gaping holes in the case against Julian. We have taken on the state trolls. We have waited patiently while the legal process goes through its strides. With the February ruling from the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, it is clear now that he has won that. That he has made the point that he is being arbitrarily detained. But it has also become clear that the superpowers that are set against him are not going to respect that decision. So it is going to take something beyond legal forums, beyond international diplomacy, to actually get him out of that embassy now.
To liberate him and to allow him safe passage to Ecuador. So that’s what this movement is all about. It’s about ordinary people all around the world saying “Enough is enough – these superpowers need to respect their own laws. They need to release him.”
