Let Julian Assange go

 Medal of Freedom  for Assange!
Sweden has a scandalous system of justice, and the country's leadership is subservient to the will of the US Empire. The case of Julian Assange is only the peak of a wider malaise. After four years, a court asked the prosecutor to do his job. After one thousand days of house arrest in Great Britain and of confinement in the Ecuadorian embassy in London it seems as if Julian Assange will be free pretty soon.

Assange has never been charged over alleged allegation of sexual assault. The false allegations were used as a pretext to lure him to Sweden, so that the country can deport him to the US, where he faces a trial for espionage, because he published videos and secret documents on WikiLeaks that show the colossal crimes of the United States in Iraq. The Swedish and the US legal system are equally lousy.
