We don't know Polish either, but our policy director @ChipGibbons89 writing on the CIA's plot against Assange has been translated into Polish.
If any followers read Polish (I sadly do not), my latest piece on the US government's war on Assange and WikiLeaks has been translated into Polish. krytykapolityczna.pl/swiat/c…

🚨 The @CCRB_NYC has substantiated abuse of authority allegations and recommended charges against the NYPD Legal Bureau lawyer who participated in arresting 12 @NLGNYCnews Legal Observers I'm proud to represent as co-counsel with @LegallyFemme @j_remy_green and @JessicaMassimi
In a first, the @CCRB_NYC has recommended charges against a lawyer with the NYPD's Legal Bureau over his direction during the June 4, 2020 Mott Haven kettle that "Legal observers can be arrested." theintercept.com/2021/10/15/…

Defending Rights & Dissent has long opposed "Communications Management Units.” That Daniel Hale, a whistleblower, has been placed in one is clearly designed as a punitive, retaliatory move by a government angry he exposed their crimes. rightsanddissent.org/news/ci…
Finally heard from Daniel Hale last night. He is allowed two ten minute calls a week, and all his communication is recorded, read and scanned. He is at one of the two CMUs in the country, “Gitmo North). This is how @POTUS treats whistleblowers. (Screenshots from @theCCR)

It is a dystopian irony that Wikileaks first gained notoriety when it published a video that depicted U.S. military gun down 2 Reuters journalists, only for the CIA to later plan to intentionally assassinate the journalist behind the release of the video. exposefacts.org/the-end-game…
