Australia betrays Julian Assange, an Australian citizen

Australia stinks. Apart from a brave effort by Bob Carr, the ABC (Background Briefing) and a few others, the Australian media has ignored Julian Assange. All this while the Australian media recently went on a campaign for “freedom of the press”. ha ha.

As for the Australian government, and most politicians – mealy mouthed spin about “consular support” – is all you get out of them. Exceptions – Andrew Wilkie and a couple of others. I shouldn’t be surprised. We did the same thing decades ago to Wilfred Burchett – who at least was not an Australian citizen. But Julian Assange is. Surely Julian should get the same compassion and help that the Australian government and press give to Australian drug dealers and murderers who are in legal trouble overseas.
