Video: Assange Addresses World from Balcony of Ecuadorian Embassy: 'The WikiLeaks 'witch-hunt' must end'

The building is made up of a series of converted apartments. Ecuador only occupies the ground floor of the building, and U.K. police remain in the hallways and elevators where Ecuador does not extend its reach. Speaking outside or within the doorway of the building would have risked his immediate arrest by U.K. police.

LONDON -- Wikileaks founder Julian Assange today addressed his supporters and the media at the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he remains, days after he was granted asylum by the Latin American country.

He spoke for ten minutes before retreating inside the building where he called for the U.S.-led "witchhunt" against Wikileaks, its staff, and its supporters must end. Assange described Ecuador's move to grant him asylum as "courageous," and outlined a number of points he wished to see in the future. But one of the stipulations of his asylum would be that he is not allowed to give political statements or face his status rescinded -- a balance he was surely careful to manage.

He said the U.S. must "dissolve its FBI investigation," and pledge not to pursue journalists against "shining the light on the rich and powerful." "There is unity in the oppression, there must be absolute unity and determination in the response," he added.

When RP Supporters Are Listed As Terrorists and the Social Security Administration is Buying Up Loads of Ammo, You Know ...

After the horrific events of 9/11, we were told that the cave-dwelling evil doers murdered over 3,000 of our fellow citizens because they hated our freedoms. America's culture and prosperity were to blame. President George W. Bush drew the line in the sand: you're either with us or against us. Logic and reason were replaced with sensationalized nationalism as we embarked on a war against an idea: a War on Terror.

CNN: Ron Paul Campaign Files 2nd Appeal for LA Delegates

"Washington (CNN) - Ron Paul's presidential campaign isn't done fighting for more delegates at the Republican National Convention.

The Texas congressman's campaign sent a memo to the all RNC members, its counsel's office and the convention's credentials committee Friday evening, ahead of its second appeal to strip Louisiana of its delegates to the convention because of rules that it says were violated during the state convention.

The first appeal was rejected by the committee earlier this month.

"There's no way you can argue with a straight face that rules weren't changed," said Charlie Davis, Louisiana chairman of the Ron Paul campaign.

Mothers To Regulators: We Will Not Comply! (Way to Go Liberty Lovin' Ladies)

We peacefully DO NOT COMPLY! That's music to my ears girls!

Article: August 16, 2012-Washington, DC (Business Wire)—On Saturday August 18, 2012 a group of mothers and others, members of the advocacy groups, the Raw Milk Freedom Riders and Lemonade Freedom Day, will take their raw milk and lemonade to the lawn of the US Capitol to celebrate their right to “voluntary exchange.”

By offering raw milk and lemonade for sale or barter, which is illegal in many places including Washington DC, these mothers and other activists risk criminal charges, and possibly jail. Last August, in a similar protest, three people were arrested for selling 10-cent cups of lemonade.

The lemonade stands and raw milk tasting booths will be set up on the mall at 12:00 noon on the lawn of the Capitol reflecting pool. The approximate location is around 3rd Street Southwest between Maryland and Jefferson in Washington DC.

“The law has turned ordinary people into criminals for engaging in normal human behavior,” says Liz Reitzig, one of the event’s organizers. “I am proud to stand with others as we peacefully do not comply with these laws.”

The protest event will be livestreamed at this website:

Then They Came For Me (2012)

Then They Came For Me (2012)

Adapted from the original (First they came...) by Rev. Martin Niemoller (1937).

First they came for the pot smokers, illegally searching and seizing contraband from their private automobiles at these so called “License Check Points,” by non uniformed, military fatigue wearing police officers, who used threats and coercions to obtain permission to search. But I said nothing, because I'm not an illegal drug user!
