Given the years of persecution & the dearth of trustworthy information, the #Assange case seems complex & unmanageable if you’re trying to explain it to someone else. Here is a 1 pager I have authored that you parliamentarians & campaigners may find helpful via @SOASICOP

#Spain’s ex police commissioner José Manuel #Villarejo has told the High Court the Spanish secret service (#CNI) was involved in the August 2017 #Barcelona terror attacks. The aim was to destabilise the #Catalan referendum, but 16 people died. #Catalunya catalannews.com/politics/ite…

Replying to @teymoornabili
It’s easy to shoot the messenger, but I’m more interested in the actual documents they’ve received which appear to be genuine…

Simply unbearable. An outrage against our common humanity, viciously repeated day after day. And yet, a chorus chants: Disputed land. Counter-terrorism. Two sides. Pallywood. No such thing as a Palestinian. Judea and Samaria. No partner for peace. Incitement in textbooks.

Imagine watching your house be demolished and having literally zero recourse or representation.
היום בקילקיס, דרומית לחברון, הצבא מוטט בית של משפחה בת עשר נפשות. בנו על אדמתם הפרטית, אבל אין היתרי בנייה לפלסטינים מהצבא בשטחי C. מדיניות אכזרית. קולוניאלית. בסרטון, שצילם איתי פייטלסון, אישה מבוגרת רצה אל המנוף שמחריב את ביתה.

Low even for the @guardian’s standards…
The Guardian published an obituary for Desmond Tutu which omitted his support for Palestinian rights , naming of Israeli oppression of the Palestinians as a form of apartheid and his support for BDS. It then deleted people's comments on its website highlighting this omission.

The US government should not go unchallenged at its #DemocracySummit while it is torturing and persecuting a journalist for doing his job. They're slowly killing #Assange in Belmarsh prison, right now. Speak now before it's too late for Julian and democracy. #FreeAssangeNOW

The reason many people in the West take freedom for granted is they think progress is inevitable. They think liberal democracy will last forever because how could we go backwards when we're always moving forward? Unfortunately, this couldn't be more historically illiterate:
