“Truth Ultimately Is All We Have:” Julian Assange Appeals for Public Support

Assange explained that since he was convicted on trumped-up bail charges shortly after his arrest on April 11, he has been “isolated from all ability to prepare to defend myself, no laptop, no internet, no computer, no library so far, but even if I do get access it will be just for half an hour with everyone else once a week.”

In his first publicly-released comments to supporters since his arrest, WikiLeaks founder and publisher Julian Assange has detailed the repressive conditions he faces in Britain’s Belmarsh prison and called for a campaign against his threatened extradition to the United States.

“I am defenceless and am counting on you and others of good character to save my life,” Assange wrote, adding, “Truth ultimately is all we have.”

Assange’s comments were made in a letter addressed to independent British journalist Gordon Dimmack, who decided to make it public following last Thursday’s announcement by the US Justice Department of additional charges against Assange under the Espionage Act. The WSWS is republishing the letter, with Dimmack’s permission, in full below.

  1. Dr. Bramhall, can you reblog my today’s post? I know this seems odd; but as you can see when reading it, it is not all my personal post. The Burning Blogger of Bedlam Blog was shutdown without any warning to him 18 days ago. As far as I remember, you know his blog too. And generally my post is both related with him and the censorship, plus my opinions. Also, because of my request from you seems very odd even to me,(as you know me, I did not make any similar request from you until today) I totaly respect your decide, if you wouldn’t reblog!

  2. Thank you so much Dr. Bramhall! WordPress shut down the blogs, not any government. From many corner of the planet some blogs are shut down, and they don’t give any warning before shutdown to the bloggers. I did not know the others, but I don’t think Burning Blogger of Bedlam can violated any terms, he is experienced blogger and decent person. He is from Britain. There is something else I think all behind. As you mention your expection, like you, myself see the sword of Damocles over my head.
