OTF – The “Independent” Internet Freedom Organization That Makes All Your Favorite Privacy Apps – is Staffed Full of Spies

6 December 2021 — MintPress News

      Silent War on Cyberspace

By Alan Macleod

WASHINGTON – The Open Technology Fund (OTF) is one of the most influential and celebrated organizations in the hacking and internet freedom communities. Well over two billion people globally use OTF-produced software, including communications app Signal and web browser Tor, services that are specifically marketed to privacy-conscious consumers looking to circumvent government censorship and surveillance. Yet its close links to the U.S. national security state raise many worrying questions about whether the world is making a mistake by trusting the organization and its products.

Chris Hedges: PEN America and the Betrayal of Julian Assange

27 December 2021 — MintPress News

PRINCETON, NEW JERSEY (Scheerpost) — Nils Melzer, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Torture, is one of the very few establishment figures to denounce the judicial lynching of Julian Assange. Melzer’s integrity and courage, for which he has been mercilessly attacked, stand in stark contrast to the widespread complicity of many human rights and press organizations, including PEN America, which has become a de facto subsidiary of the Democratic National Committee.

“Coerced Vaccination”: The Left’s Contempt for Bodily Autonomy during the Covid-19 Pandemic. A “Gift to the Right”?

23 December 2021 — Global Research

When did parts of the left get so contemptuous of the principle of “bodily autonomy”? Answer: Just about the time they started fetishising vaccines as the only route out of the current pandemic.

Only two years ago most people understood “bodily autonomy” to be a fundamental, unquestionable human right.

Voices of Concern: Aussies for Assange’s Return

23 December 2021 — South Front

Written by Dr. Binoy Kampmark

With Julian Assange now fighting the next stage of efforts to extradite him to the United States to face 18 charges, 17 of which are based on the brutal, archaic Espionage Act, some Australian politicians have found their voice.  It might be said that a few have even found their conscience.

The Assange Issue Is NOT Complicated: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix

15 December 2021 — Caitlin Johnson

by Caitlin Johnstone

Listen to a reading of this article:

The most powerful regime on the planet imprisoning a journalist for journalistic activity is as brazen and obvious an act of tyranny as you could possibly come up with, and yet you still get pseudoleft pundits acting like you’re some kind of weird freak for expecting them to oppose it.

Your Man Back in the Public Gallery: Assange Extradition, US Appeal Result

13 December, 2021 — Craig Murray

On Thursday afternoon I was in Edinburgh High Court to get back my passport, which had been confiscated during my own court proceedings avowedly to stop me going to Spain to testify in the trial of David Morales of UC Global. He stands accused by whistleblowers in his own company of spying on Julian Assange, his lawyers and other associates (including myself), on behalf of the CIA, and in engaging with them on plans to kidnap or assassinate Assange.

A Day in the Death of British Justice

12 December, 2021 — Dissident Voice

By John Pilger

The pursuit of Julian Assange for revealing secrets and lies of governments, especially the crimes of America, has entered its final stage as the British judiciary – upholders of ‘British justice’ – merge their deliberations with the undeterred power of Washington.

I sat in Court 4 in the Royal Courts of Justice in London with Stella Morris, Julian Assange’s partner. I have known Stella for as long as I have known Julian. She, too, is a voice of freedom, coming from a family that fought the fascism of Apartheid. Today, her name was uttered in court by a barrister and a judge, forgettable people were it not for the power of their endowed privilege.

Let’s stop Covid passes across the UK

Dear friends,

  • Today, the EU Commission President said that mandatory vaccines must be considered across the EU.
  • Yesterday, Greece announced a monthly fine for over-60s of EU100, in perpetuity, if they are not vaccinated against Covid.
  • Austria has already used Covid passports to enforce a lockdown for unvaccinated people – and is making vaccinations mandatory from February.
