Julian Assange on Aiding Snowden, Tiff w/ The Intercept & Whether He'll Ever Leave Embassy Refuge
Publicerades den 9 jul 2014 democracynowhttp://www.democracynow.org - WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange sits down with Democracy Now! inside the Ecuadorean embassy in London, where he has been living in political asylum for over two years.
Assange explains his critique of First Look Media and The Intercept for agreeing not to name a country targeted by bulk National Security Agency spying, following U.S. government concerns that doing so could lead to increased violence.
Assange and WikiLeaks went on to reveal the targeted country, Afghanistan, which along with the Bahamas had all of its cell phone calls recorded. "That is as great an assault to sovereignty as you can imagine, other than completely militarily occupying a country, to record the intimate phone calls of every single Afghan citizen," Assange says. "My perspective is, [this is] up to the Afghan people."
Assange also gives an overview of the close to eight million documents WikiLeaks has released since 2007 about nearly every country in the world; details how WikiLeaks helped Edward Snowden evade U.S. arrest and find political asylum in Russia; and addresses his prospects for ever being able to leave the Ecuadorean embassy without fear of arrest.

WikiLeaks' Julian Assange Responds to Hillary Clinton: Fair U.S. Trial for Snowden "Not Possible"
Publicerades den 9 jul 2014 democracynowhttp://www.democracynow.org - In part two of our exclusive interview, Amy Goodman goes inside Ecuador's embassy in London to speak with Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks.
Assange has been living in the embassy for more than two years under political asylum. He faces investigations in both Sweden and the United States, where a secret grand jury is investigating WikiLeaks for its role in publishing a trove of leaked documents about the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, as well as State Department cables. Assange responds to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's recent comments that National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden should return home to face trial.
"It's the advice of all our lawyers that he should not return to the United States. He'd be extremely foolish to do so," Assange says. "It's not possible to have a fair trial, because the U.S. government has a precedent of applying state secret privilege to prevent the defense from using material that is classified in their favor."
