Julian Assange House Arrest: WikiLeaks Video

Wikileaks has had an enormous impact across the globe over the last year and yet despite its extraordinary revelations from ‘collateral murder’ to the US Embassy cables, the only people currently under arrest are Julian Assange, an Australian citizen and founder of Wikileaks and the alleged whistleblower Bradley Manning.

Julian Assange has now been held under house arrest for six months without being charged with a crime in any country, while many of the very real crimes exposed by Wikileaks are yet to be investigated yet alone any one arrested and charged.

Julian Assange is now not only at risk of going to Sweden but if the current American Grand Jury and administration is successful in its attempts to manufacture a case against him, Julian may still be extradited to the USA.

It is time for Australian citizens and supporters around the world to step up and speak out, not only for Julian Assange but for the protection our own human rights and civil liberties.

2010 was a massive year for Wikileaks and for Julian Assange – here is how it went down:
