Jeremy Corbyn calls for Assange extradition to be blocked

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has called on the British government to oppose Julian Assange extradition to the US.

The WikiLeaks co-founder was dramatically arrested at the Ecudorian embassy on Thursday and forcible dragged by police out of the embassy, down the steps across the pavement and thrown into a police van.

Christine Assange the mother slammed Theresa May, the Ecuador’s president, and District Judge Michael Snow for branding her son a “narcissist.”  She called the arrest, “thuggish, brutal, unlawful arrest.”

Corbyn tweeted, “The extradition of Julian Assange to the US for exposing evidence of atrocities in Iraq and Afghanistan should be opposed by the British government.”

WikiLeaks editor Kristinn Hrafnsson fears that more charges could be added by US authorities, meaning Assange could face decades in a US prison.

From what District Judge Michael Snow said to Assange yesterday, it seems clear that the legal system is supporting an extradition request by the US government.

Pamela Anderson is a supporter of Assange and on Thursday said the British government “are America’s b****” and needed adiversion from “Brexit bull****.”
