We all know what the Australian Federal Government has done publicly to try and stop WikiLeaks and Julian Assange. What they are doing privately we do not know but one has to surmise they are doing a lot given their public statements.
In an article in the SMH (Sydney Morning Herald) by Ross Cameron on the 13th January 2011 it starts off:
“I recently put the proposition, to a senior frontbencher in Federal Parliament, that the WikiLeaks horse had bolted, and that shutting down Julian Assange could not reverse a fundamental shift in the balance of power towards the citizens and away from the institutions that govern them.”
His response was: ”The Catholic Church shut down Galileo for a hundred years. I think we can shut down Julian Assange.” (Click here to read more)
One has to ask on what basis are they trying to stop WikiLeaks and Julian Assange and to whose benefit.
Given the legal and court issues surrounding WikiLeaks and Julian Assange and the actions of the Australian Governement I will write further on this topic as it falls into the confines of the focus of this site. That being corruption in the judicial system.
