Why Assange, Why Mexico?

5 January 2021

“… by offering Assange asylum López Obrador adds political clout to the growing international outrage at the detention and psychological torture of Assange. AMLO has also put Mexico on the world stage and has conferred legitimacy on the actions of Assange and Wikileaks, that revealed to the world numerous illegal activities perpetrated by the U.S., including war crimes, clandestine operations and meddling in the internal political affairs of dozens of countries, foes and allies alike. Offering asylum to Assange shows respect, from the heart of the Americas, for human rights, international law, sovereign equality of nations, political independence, and multilateralism.”

    Assange collaborated with Roger Stone, Cambridge Analytica, and Putin.
    He told a big lie about the 2016 Democratic primaries that has caused a huge amount of human misery.

        Trump’s election as President in 2016, which Assange contributed to, has had a great deal to do with Mexico, Central America, and the Carribbean.
