From leading the Wikileaks revolution to hiding in a consol.
A few weeks ago, Julian Assange lost his case for extradition to Sweden to answer to charges of rape. He has always claimed that if he was to be sent there, he would be extradited to the USA and face the death penalty. To prevent this, he walked into the Ecuador embassy and is claiming asylum.
Ecuador has one of the worst reputations for fair and honest journalism and reporting. Free speech is a pipe dream and not a reality for the country.
So, someone who said that deep secrets should be revealed is now asking for help from someone who routinely suppresses information.
Is Assange right to do this, to avoid extradition as a political refugee or has he set himself up as more important than his ideals?
