Julian Assange arrestThe online petition is here — 133,000 have signed so far.  The British establishment has developed a reputation for jailing rebels and yesterday it lived up to this when a judge gave Julian Assange 50 weeks imprisonment for breaching bail conditions, two weeks short of the maximum.

The petition in support of freedom of speech and opposition to corrupt government will be disregarded by the British, but as the articles we’ve reposted show, there is plenty of support for Assange in America and that is more important.
