Perfect address from Assange. It's about time we tore down the walls being built up around the corrupt and oppressive governments of the this world... The UK easily falls into that category.
'Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has made his first public statement since entering the Ecuadorean embassy in London in June to seek asylum.
He called on US President Barack Obama to "do the right thing" and for his government to "renounce its witch hunt against Wikileaks".
Mr Assange spoke from a balcony at the embassy and thanked Ecuador's president, who has granted him asylum.
He faces extradition to Sweden over sexual assault claims, which he denies.
Mr Assange said: "As Wikileaks stands under threat, so does the freedom of expression and the health of all our societies.
"We must use this moment to articulate the choice that is before the government of the United States of America.
"Will it return to and re-affirm the revolutionary values it was founded on?
"Or will it lurch off the precipice, dragging us all into a dangerous and oppressive world in which journalists fall silent under the fear of prosecution and citizens must whisper in the dark."'http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-19310335
