Julian Assange

(idioms: EN & ES ) Former President Rafael Correia : ”Assange is, and has been since last year, an Ecuadorian citizen”. As such, today’s arrest ”is not only unlawful in terms of the legal obligations with respect the status of those granted asylum (the rights thereof) and binding International Law , but also, the Ecuadorian Constitution” – which Correa classifies as ”unheard of” and ”outrageous”.
_____
El expresidente de Ecuador Rafael Correa – Correa ha recordado que “Assange es, desde el año pasado, ciudadano ecuatoriano”, con lo cual, según explica el exmandatario, la detención llevada acabo hoy “no solo rompe las reglas de asilo y el Derecho internacional, sino la Constitución ecuatoriana”, algo que Correa ha calificado como “inaudito” e “indignante”.

ACLU | American Civil Liberties Union : comment on Julian Assange Arrest  
(April 11, 2019)

(Portion taken of the article. Please click on the available link for the full article)

« Ben Wizner, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project, issued the following comment in response:

“Any prosecution by the United States of Mr. Assange for Wikileaks’ publishing operations would be unprecedented and unconstitutional, and would open the door to criminal investigations of other news organizations. Moreover, prosecuting a foreign publisher for violating U.S. secrecy laws would set an especially dangerous precedent for U.S. journalists, who routinely violate foreign secrecy laws to deliver information vital to the public’s interest.

In response to the unsealed indictement, Wizner added:

“Criminally prosecuting a publisher for the publication of truthful information would be a first in American history, and unconstitutional. The government did not cross that Rubicon with today’s indictment, but the worst case scenario cannot yet be ruled out. We have no assurance that these are the only charges the government plans to bring against Mr. Assange. Further, while there is no First Amendment right to crack a government password, this indictment characterizes as ‘part of’ a criminal conspiracy the routine and protected activities journalists often engage in as part of their daily jobs, such as encouraging a source to provide more information. Given President Trump’s and his administration’s well-documented attacks on the freedom of the press, such characterizations are especially worrisome.”

« Under what law did Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno capriciously terminate Julian Assange’s rights of asylum as a political refugee? Under what law did Moreno authorize British police to enter the Ecuadorian Embassy—diplomatically sanctioned sovereign territory—to arrest a naturalized citizen of Ecuador? Under what law did Prime Minister Theresa May order the British police to grab Assange, who has never committed a crime? Under what law did President Donald Trump demand the extradition of Assange, who is not a U.S. citizen and whose news organization is not based in the United States? »

Oil exploration threatens narwhals and an entire way of life.

A tiny community is fighting Big Oil, and they need our help.

Off the coast of Clyde River, Nunavut, unspoiled Arctic waters are home to 90% of the world’s narwhals. These whales, with their unique tusks that look like a unicorn’s horn, take up a important role in the aquatic ecosystem. They are also an important food source for the native Inuit people, many of whom must rely on subsistence hunting to survive. But Clyde River, the narwhals, and everyone whose way of life depends on the ocean are in danger.

The Canadian government just granted oil corporations the right to search for drilling sites in the ocean near Clyde River. The environnmental devastation that comes with offshore drilling is bad enough, but the search is worse – these oil companies will use “seismic testing,” setting off huge explosions underwater. Like all whales, narwhals use their hearing to communicate and to find their way safely beneath the Arctic ice. The search for oil will deafen, disorient, and kill any narwhals caught in its path.

Save the narwhals! Sign the petition to stop Big Oil from destroying Arctic habitats.

For generations, big corporations have stripped northern Canada of its natural resources, trampling the rights of native peoples and destroying entire ecosystems for profit. The government has been complicit in this, auctioning off oil and mineral rights to the highest bidder and ignoring the consequences.

The people of Clyde River have had enough. They are standing up to the government and to Big Oil and fighting to protect their home. But there are only 900 people in Clyde River. They need us to stand with them. If we act now, we can stop the oil companies in their tracks before the damage is done.

Sign the petition to the government of Canada, saying NO to Big Oil wrecking the Arctic Ocean.
