Petitioning Equador's President Rafael Correa

Grant Political Assylum to Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange

The extradition of Julian Assange to Sweeden is a farce, an attempt to divert the world's attention from Wikileaks while simultaneously disarming it. The world needs Wikileaks, and it's founder.

The most alarming possibility is not that Mr. Assange is extradited to Sweden, but that he could be extradited from Sweden to the USA. Given the treatment of detainees in Guantanamo and even of Bradly Manning, it would be certain that the world could but sit by and denounce the miserable treatment Mr. Assange would receive, without effectively altering it.
