Online drive generates 13K emails supporting Assange
The U.S. online activist group RootsAction has sent emails from over 13,000 people to the Ecuadorean Embassy in Washington in support of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s request for asylum.
The emails are generated when anyone signs and clicks “Send” on this page: http://act.rootsaction.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=6213.
The flood of supportive messages has been publicly noted by the government of Ecuador.
“Sweden has a record of bowing to U.S. pressure, including the handing over of two men to the CIA in 2006 — leading the UN to find Sweden complicit in torture,” reads RootsAction’s appeal. The WikiLeaks founder faces the possibility of extradition to Sweden from England, and then to the United States from Sweden.
