Julian Assange’s rape case: is Sweden just making it up? Julian Assange’s former lawyer writes

2 December, 2010 — Crikey

Apparently having consensual sex in Sweden without a condom is punishable by a term of imprisonment of a minimum of two years for rape. That is the basis for a reinstitution of rape charges against WikiLeaks figurehead Julian Assange that is destined to make Sweden and its justice system the laughing stock of the world and dramatically damage its reputation as a model of modernity.

Budrus Official Film Website | Just Vision

4 December, 2010 — Just Vision

Budrus tells the story of a Palestinian community organizer, Ayed Morrar, who unites members of all factions along with Israeli supporters in an unarmed movement to save his village of Budrus from destruction. Success looks improbable until his 15-year-old daughter, Iltezam, launches a women’s contingent that quickly moves to the front lines.

Recently, the Boston Globe said of Budrus, “this film will single-handedly change how many people view the conflict. It’s that good and that important.”
