Hero or Villain: The Prosecution of Julian Assange | Four Corners

Julian Assange is likely one of the maximum influential figures to emerge this century. The Australian born founding father of WikiLeaks has harnessed the generation of the virtual age to unharness a data battle in opposition to governments and firms.

WikiLeaks has collaborated with nameless assets to unlock extremely labeled and frequently deeply embarrassing knowledge to the sector.

The organisation exploded onto the sector degree in 2010 when it all started publishing a sequence of impressive leaks laying naked the habits of the United States. At the centre of all of it was once Julian Assange.

The leaks sparked ferocious debate over the appropriate to grasp and the appropriate to stay secrets and techniques.

Now Julian Assange is within the combat of his lifestyles. In April this 12 months he was once dragged, protesting, from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, just about seven years after searching for diplomatic coverage.

He is going through extradition to the United States on espionage fees stemming from the impressive 2010 leaks by way of Private Chelsea Manning.

Everyone has an opinion about Julian Assange, however now you are going to pay attention from those that were at the within.

Four Corners investigates the prosecution of Julian Assange in key interviews with the ones on the middle of WikiLeaks and people who have sought to deliver him to US justice. These insider accounts give robust insights into how those momentous occasions have spread out.

    Propaganda piece, shameful one-sided reporting that assumes a soldier’s life, armed to the teeth is more valuable than helpless civilians, including children and if you dare to point that out, you deserve to be labelled as subversive etc. How do these propaganda agents sleep at night?

    ‘The leaks sparked ferocious debate over the right to know and the right to keep secrets.’

    you’re right, because indiscriminately murdering dozens of civilians, torturing captives (mostly innocents given up by bounty hunters) and other such despicable and vile behaviour by state terorrists should always have the right to remain secret.

    what’s weird is, real people ‘journalists’ read and write this stuff and they really believe the governments of the world have any kind of moral right, ground or thimble. astounding, in fact.

    As an Australian im ashamed and outraged in the way our government has capitulated to the USA.. I am Outraged that Julian is a scapegoat and patsy used to destroy Free Speech, Transparency and Government Accountability by targeting Journalists and True News Media… Thank You 4 corners for showing us that there are atleast somw journalists that are willing to tell the story and truth.. the ABC is the last decent TV station in Australia that attempts to show unbiased Journalism..GOD BLESS YOU JULIAN… I AM WITH YOU…??????

    Julian is the epitome of righteous benevolence, persecuted as Jesus was but forever in the hearts of many. Entirely inspirational. A hero of the world, his strong heart an obvious consequence of growing up in a warm and mindful environment.

    The Australian government is controlled by Israel and the USA.and ultimately by Rothschilds just as every other Western country is. How many Australian citizens are aware of the secret $5 Billion dollars given to Israel by the Australian government to spy on Palestinians? Alex Downer even robbed EastTimor the poorest country on earth at the time for their oil rights and Royalties money. He is now in the USA on a cushy well paid holiday/job.

    Free Julian Assange Australian hero now!
    Shame on criminal politicians that’s cowardly covering for other despicable criminals.

  13. colin porter on 23/07/2019 at 11:29 am

    How come the perpetrators of operation Cyclone face no consequences yet Assange has his feet held to the fire?.

  14. colin porter on 23/07/2019 at 11:31 am

    Is Julian Asanges information as destructive as Americas disinformation?.

  15. Jacqueline Mac Gregor on 23/07/2019 at 12:04 pm
