The ubiquitous Julian Assange has broken free of his “house arrest” and sought refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy for political asylum. It is unclear as to whether Julian’s plans where to evade the ongoing sexual accusations from Sweden against him or whether he was eager to escape his RT-TV contract on – the World tomorrow.
Julian is an odd fellow no doubt. From his prematurely grey hair to his love of encryption he has captured the imagination of people everywhere. As a modern Hacktivist hero; a “David” character against the Goliath of the Global Elite. Love him or hate him, he has something of interest – his mind. Sadly it did not work out too well with his TV show. Is he a radical journalist, an undercover agent, Controlled opposition of just another Hacker with delusions of grandeur? Time will tell…
But now the police are after him for breaching of his bail conditions. The thing is, one can hardly blame him for running, after 500 days house arrest without charge, that chance of him getting a fair trial are slim.
