6 years today since Assange walked into the Ecuadorian embassy. Ecuador granted him asylum based on fear of political persecution for activities in Wikileaks. He never faced any charges and case has long been dropped in Sweden.
A global demonstration has been organised for today to mark the occasion.
The villification of Assange is not an ordinary or natural occurrence.
Intelligence reports from 2008 and 2011 show the systematic planning to take down Wikileaks, and continuous public attacks are how they operate in practice.https://t.co/dOU6ICJeHr https://t.co/0LK6O78hQF pic.twitter.com/HrF0vtaa6O
