So, as I'm ready to go to sleep, I read that "Paypal has frozen the account of Courage to
Resist" the main fundraising site for Bradley Manning. :
And then, I read that some English judge has ruled to extradite Assange to Sweden. I am beyond outraged. The oligarchy is responding just like Mubarak, like Qaddafi, and they will go down just like those despots did. I would be in despair if not for Wikileaks and Anonymous, and millions of freedom-loving activists aroused throughout the world, like Tunisians, Egyptians, Libyans, Bahrainis, Yemenis, Iraqis, Pakistanis, Palestinians, Algerians, etc, and now, in the US, we are seeing an uprising centered on Wisconsin but spreading, just like in the ME.
The absolute hubris of American corporations acting to refuse to allow the legal transfer of funds by US CITIZENS to the recipient of their choice crosses the line. It was done before, targeting Wikileaks, and Assange, now Bradley Manning, WHO NEXT? Oh, BTW, after reading the briefs related to Assange:
it is palpably obvious that this is a concerted, coordinated effort by our government, in concert wih our allies, to squash the journalistic and free speech rights of the citizens of this country. This is an outrage. If we cannot have a free press, we are victims of fascism.
