WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Says He’ll Soon Leave Ecuador Embassy | Wall Street Journal

Two Years Later, WikiLeaks’ Assange Still Pushing For Freedom, Transparency | MintPress News

Co-founder and editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks, Assange sought to create an organization that aligns with his belief that a transparent government reduces corruption and in turn creates a stronger democracy, which explains why WikiLeaks has released more classified intelligence documents than all other media organizations around the world combined.

Assange likely had an underwhelming birthday weekend in July, as the journalist remains a refugee at the Embassy of Ecuador in London, a place he has been unable to leave since June 19, 2012. If Assange were to leave the embassy, he would run into the British police officers stationed outside the embassy 24 hours a day, seven days a week, armed with handcuffs, assault rifles and orders to deport Assange to Sweden. (This police presence has cost U.K. taxpayers about $10 million so far.)
