WikiLeaks Julian Assange Fears he will be “Assassinated”

Let’s for a minute contemplate the appearance of Julian Assange, he looks as if he is attempting to apply for this year’s role of Santa at a shopping centre. He might be slowly losing his marbles considering a few of his comments concerning his stay at the Ecuadorian embassy during an interview with The Times Magazine.

Can I source this link? Noooo, why? Behind a paywall, oh where else can I find a summary, I know, the many sources on the internet of course. Anyway, Julian Assange fears he will be assassinated if he steps onto either a balcony or out the door of the embassy. This is technically possible, although he might need to move further away from the building than that for it to look less obvious. Now for the weird, the following comments are his views on being “droned”

I’m a white guy,” Mr Assange said. “Unless I convert to Islam it’s not that likely that I’ll be droned, but we have seen things creeping towards that.”

I am just going to let that sink in for a sec, he also describes receiving bomb and death threats and he has also not been able to have any fresh air or sunlight for 3 years. His situation could be resolved in the next 2 years by which point his hotel stay at the embassy will be nearer five years.

Julian Assange is controversial yet has, through Wikileaks, been able to expose many a scandal which has included Surveillance and also disgraceful military practices. His situation depends on your viewpoint, many spectators have formed a conclusion that he does indeed have a target on his head, but it’s difficult to quantify his situation, after all, where will he be in 5 years.  Let’s hope he re-enters the world otherwise officials will start charging him per night for his room.

US Embassy in Berlin Receives ‘Beamed’ Graffitti to Protest NSA Spying Activities

It looks like a German artist has used a different form of “graffiti” to protest the NSA early this morning in Berlin. Oliver Bienkowski, a self-proclaimed “guerilla marketing expert”, has used a powerful projector mounted in a cargo van and beamed it on the US Embassy. The image is said to have illustrated a silly portrait of US President, Barack Obama, and a message: “NSA in da House”.

The United States Embassy in Berlin is said to be in a heavily police-patrolled area near the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate and due to this, the police have peacefully shut down the projection within minutes, according to the video below, posted online by the group of German artists.

It is said that this is not the first time Bienkowski used the side of a building to express his work and protest. Last year, he projected the words “United Stasi of America” on another building structure to protest against spying activities, having the past year not being a good one for US-German relations.

A series of uncovered information have pointed out the extent of NSA surveillance activities in Europe the past year. German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, had her phone under surveillance by the NSA and there are still concerns of widespread surveillance of internet activities which pass through US servers. A CIA chief in Berlin has even been expelled by the Germans last year as a sign of its displeasure with US spy activities in their country.
