Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was given asylum at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in 2012, but the Ecuadorian government now has cut off his internet access and will not allow him to have visitors, essentially cutting him off from the outside world. The Ecuadorian government says he broke  an agreement to not send messages that interfere in relations with other states. Since the Director of the CIA Mike Pompeo recently said that the Trump administration considers Assange to be a threat to the United States and that they were working to ‘take down’ that threat, it is reasonable to assume that the Ecuadorian government  is cooperating with the US and UK to force Assange out of the embassy so he can be extradited to the US to be imprisoned for life – or worse. -GEG

Julian Assange was officially cut off from communicating with the outside world on Wednesday by the government of Ecuador, most likely due to pressure from the US and EU.

Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in the UK since 2012 after being granted asylum. He faces arrest by UK authorities if he dares to step outside the embassy for breaching bail conditions. Assange fears he will be extradited to the US if arrested by the UK and jailed for life or worse.

Here’s Breitbart’s translation:

The Government of Ecuador suspended the systems allowing Julian Assange to communicate with the outside from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where the citizen remains in a situation of international protection for six years due to risks to his life and integrity.

The measure was adopted following Assange’s failure to abide by a written commitment he assumed with the Government at the end of 2017 that obliged him to not send messages that involve interference in the relations of other States.

The Government of Ecuador warns that Assange’s behavior, with his messages through social media, puts the good relations that the country has with the United Kingdom, the rest of the states of the European Union, and other nations at risk. Due to this, and in order to prevent potential prejudices, the embassy in London interrupted this 27 of May communications abroad which Assange had access to.

The Executive also maintains open the way for the adoption of new measures before the lack of fulfillment of commitments on Assange’s behalf.

Former CIA director Mike Pompeo called Assange an “enormous threat” they’re “working to take down” late last year.

The problem is that there was an agreement between Assange and the Ecuadorian Embassy, that he would not use his internet connection to embarrass other States and harm the relationship between them and Ecuador. Assange being what he is, a champion of freedom of speech, actually exercised this right in order to expose a false flag on the part of the British Government as well as having the sheer effrontery to point out that Angela Merkel was doing what Hitler did , in demanding the extradition of the Anti-Fascist, Puigdemont, from Catalonia. All of this Anarchofascism was too much for… Read more »

I guess Theresa May must be taking a break from her prevarication over Brexit to hone her already considerable skills as an Anarchofascist! She was no doubt moved to action by the pompous barking noises from 10 Downing Street made in relation to Julian Assange exercising his right to freedom of speech.

This is in response to U.S. Pressure on the Ecuadorian Embassy cutting off Julian Assange’s internet connection. I was hopeful that when Trump got elected we had put an end to crime families running the country. Now my hope is going away. It’s time to ratchet up the secrecy subject to another level. The ROOT of corruption in the Federal Government is its ability to declare its actions secret. No more secrets. It’s time to do two things: push to end all Secrets in the federal government and that include the ability to redact information from government documents. WE the… Read more »
