DFAT taking the same approach to Assange's health and our govt takes to the environment.
Here's the 31.5.19 DFAT Statement which states 'We are confident that Mr Assange is being treated appropriately in Belmarsh Prison.'

How can Peter Garrett, who sang: "US forces give the nod. It's a setback for your country", & whose words Julian used as a young man: "You talk of times of peace for all & then prepare for war" fail to see injustice of #Assange's case? Very disappointing. Talk about #Assange.

The US-UK are slowly killing Julian Assange because he believed in your right to know. Most journalists in our society collude with power to make sure you never know what they do in the world. The persecution of Assange is about keeping that system robust and you in the dark.

The Biden Admin's attempts to extradite Assange to the US to imprison him for life for his reporting - and their ongoing success in keeping him imprisoned pending appeal - is the worst assault on western press freedom by far. That only independent journalists care speaks volumes.

An eerie image: Assange is seen via video, sitting in a blue room in Belmarsh prison, looking pale and sick, as the prosecution can be heard in the background arguing to the court about his mental state, painting him as a malingerer. He is then escorted out the room by a guard.

Julian looks very bad - this is a crime against Humanity - They have been trying to kill him slowly...
Replying to @Tareq_Haddad
Update: Assange now appears on the videolink for the first time. Appears to be coughing and wincing in pain.

Please, can we unite on one this one true moral principle, one that affects whether we will ever have free-speech or the ability to criticize our governments in the west?

The search feature on @Twitter is STILL not working when you search assange. Instead it brings up results for the word arrested. Court is tomorrow. I’m sure this is just a coincidence. 🙄 #FreeAssange
