Assange’s lawyer says he may not be released tonight…
3.34pm: Assange’s bail conditions include surrendering his passport, a curfew, and an electronic tag.
3.31pm: Assange’s next court appearance will be January 11 2011. (Sorry about the technical problems in the last few minutes).
3.25pm: Assange has been granted bail, to cheers from inside and outside the court.
3.00pm: We doubt whether this actual category of rape would be rape under English law, Robertson told the court, according to Mostrous. (This is the weirdest way to report court proceedings. Why don’t they televise it and have done with it?)
Public support for Assange has been overwhelming and Wikileaks is now mirrored on over 2,130 sites. Today, Michael Moore offered servers to Wikileaks.
Furthermore, I am publicly offering the assistance of my website, my servers, my domain names and anything else I can do to keep WikiLeaks alive and thriving as it continues its work to expose the crimes that were concocted in secret and carried out in our name and with our tax dollars.
We were taken to war in Iraq on a lie. Hundreds of thousands are now dead. Just imagine if the men who planned this war crime back in 2002 had had a WikiLeaks to deal with. They might not have been able to pull it off. The only reason they thought they could get away with it was because they had a guaranteed cloak of secrecy. That guarantee has now been ripped from them, and I hope they are never able to operate in secret again.
