Justice for Assange.

As the news breaks that Julian Assange has been remanded in custody until 14th December I am ashamed to be British. This decision shows the contempt for democracy that our Government has.

I believe that we need to stand up and speak out for what we believe in. It is hard at times to do that, particularly when fear and threat are rife. When the foundations of free speech are removed in such a flagrant and outrageous fashion we will only have ourselves to blame if we stand to one side and allow these things to happen.

I believe in Assange's actions.
I believe that transparency and honesty are the way forward.
I believe that this is a pivotal time for the future of our world.
