Dear Julian: Ecaudor's Attack on Free Speech
Manuela Picq, Al Jazeera
I heard you have taken refuge in Ecuador's embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden on sex crime charges. By now, the government of Ecuador should be about to decide on your asylum request. You have been so busy lately, fighting legal battles while under house arrest, with so much going on in your life that you may have overlooked world news. Maybe you heard that freedom of expression is under attack in Ecuador. So before you decide to board a plane to Quito, I thought I would fill you in.
TAGGED: freedom of speech, Ecuador, WikiLeaks, Julian Assange
