Dear Editor,

Pro-Zionist, pro-Apartheid Israel and US lackey Lib-Lab (Liberal-National Coalition and Labour) Australia has utterly betrayed free journalism and the founder of WikiLeaks and arguably the world's most famous journalist, Australian Julian Assange, who has been dragged out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London by British police, convicted of the asserted crime of violating bail conditions, and faces up to five years in a US prison on extradition after they revealed hacking charges against him. There are also adumbrated espionage charges carrying the death penalty.

Julian Assange is an Australian hero, world hero, and a prize-winning journalist for revealing the crimes and machinations of the evil American Empire. Decent people around the world will condemn the rotten manoeuvrings of the UK, Swedish and US authorities, and will continue to demand “Free Julian Assange”.
