“We always expect tremendous criticism. It is my role to be the lightning rod ... to attract the attacks against the organization for our work, and that is a difficult role. On the other hand, I get undue credit.”

-Julian Assange

“Remember, it’s not the leaks that are killing anyone. It’s the secrets that have killed people.”

-Michael Moore

since may 2010,

before any kind of trial at all has taken place,

bradley manning rots in solitary

confinement,

“being denied exercise, any kind of social

interaction & sunlight” as well as often

“being kept completely naked”

clearly undergoing what some have rightly called

torture---

julian assange’s life is threatened on a

daily

basis

& if no one kills him before he is imprisoned for life

or executed

in this

great american witch hunt

you can bet your bottom dollar that

the EMPIRE will do everything that they can to

silence him &

shut down wikileaks

screaming & thrashing

having its little temper tantrum

because some of its

EVIL

WAYS

have had a bright light shined on them.

 

meanwhile,

you & i can either climb to the highest

mountain that we can find in these here

united states

stand on the edge of a cliff

and together,

we can raise our hands & wave goodbye to

the

first amendment as mr. obama & co.

“pursue the prosecution of more whistleblowers

than any other administration in US history”

then subsequently

jump off into the quiet &

complete annihilation of our freedom of speech---

or,

because manning, assange &

so many anonymous others

are simply individuals

who

WANT

THE

TRUTH,

we can join them!

we can stand beside them & support them

in any way possible!

at the very least we can understand that they are

heroes that should be honored as being

vital

voices &

promoters of a better humanity---

one

that cannot

that WILL NOT

be

undermined by the overwhelmingly oppressive

forces

that still thrive amongst us.
