Colours of Revolution and democratic, libertarian hopes
Meanwhile in Australia, Christine Assange, adressing a meeting with PMs and Senators in Canberra, took up a nodal issue about Wikileaks interaction with revolutionary change, a phenomenon that is both politically and technically bound. It is about a Cyber-vanguard alerting citizens exactly in an epoch and in a world-conjuncture screaming for new democratic answers. It reminds me the 68’s movement. In her words:
where internet technology is intersecting with democracy.”
all the citizens of the world for speaking out?” 
They now understand that so-called secrecy in government, justified by so-called national interests, turned out being a simple cloak-and-dagger manoeuvring aimed gagging the emergent whistleblowing voice.
A flag leading this struggle is the pro-transparency organization Wikileaks
It helped vast contingents around the world star asking anew the validity of authority, on whether authority it should be equated with respect.
They ask whether they should respect an authority which only abuses peoples’ rights and despises their trust. They ask anew about the meaning of State, the meaning of democracy, as once Lincoln did.
And further, they ask how far has political government really gone in placing the public interests (and funds) under the economic and corporate profit and rule. They wonder what “financial crisis” of these days really represents. How come that the banks instead get richer, top government and political bureaucrats get investment and corporate involved, armies and police enforcers get stronger in legislation and weaponry?
What the “free press”, both mainstream media and “free”-lance journalists in the establishment’s payroll, have got for assignments? How come those whole nations of people actually believed they were both the problem and cause of such crisis and thus they would have to accept their increasing impoverishment?
This struggle against the politically-based extradition of the Wikileaks founder – and the imperative claim for the liberation of Bradley and all honourable political prisoners – is the wind waving such cheerful colours – the WL flag – in a night of beleaguered political deception.
To bring the truth to the streets of the nation makes the activist “dangerous”.
But to disclose the secrets of governments about the deception to their people in front the whole world, makes the honest fighter a “criminal”, by edict of the exposed ones.
Or others horrible media frauds.
When the street populations of Africa or the Middle East are forced to spill their blood for the chimer of a new order.
When politicians and rulers, and popes, and the journalists that cover them up, and all of that fascist cohort of intellectual servants or “order-enforcing” lackeys guarding only the aggressors’ order, protecting the macabre orgy in which the hyper-rich trade the destiny of those hyper-miserable for a bunch of stockholders in Stockholm, London or Wall Street.

Other developments of today 17 November, regarding the Swedish case against the Wikileaks founder: In Sweden, News Agency TT announced that Julian Assange has changed his Swedish lawyer, replacing Björn Hurtig by Per E Samuelson and Thomas Ohlsson . Hurtig declared to them “good luck”! The change of Julian Assange’s lawyers was communicated to the Courts today, according to TT [See English translation of the cable in Note 3, down below]. The developments were soon published also by Dagens Nyheter, Aftonbladet, Expressen, and SvD.
According to a cable from Stockholm by The Associated Press, Per E Samuelson, who has previously represented one of the four men behind file-sharing web site The Pirate Bay, “has been a critic of Sweden’s sex crime laws.” The cable adds that Samuelson had previously declared to The Associated Press that “(Sweden) has come to use ‘the designation rape in a way no other country uses it’.” . Participants in the Swedish Net-forum Flashback praises Assange’s choice giving details of distinguished ethical and professional record regarding the new lawyers.
“We are at a crossroad in history here with democracy, where internet technology is intersecting with democracy. “Which way are we going to go? Are we going to repress all the citizens of the world for speaking out?”
Julian Assange has appointed lawyers Per E Samuelson and Thomas Olsson new defenders instead of Björn Hurtig.
This has now been notified to the Stockholm District Court.
Lawyer Thomas Olsson told TT that he only had contact with Assange for a short time.
-The reasons why he (Assange) changes his lawers, are up to him to exlain, said Olsson.
Olsson has just started to read up on the legal case – the sexual offenses that Assange is suspected of – and will give their views on it early next week.
He does not want to say whether the change of the defence-team defending has to do with that Assange may have plans to come to Sweden.
As recently as last Tuesday appealed Assange at the Suprime Court (London) the decision to extradite him to Sweden made by the High Courts.
Attorney Björn Hurtig says that it “absolutely not” a conflict between him and Assange lawyer behind the change.
-Why he chose to change (lawyer), you should ask him. But it is not unusual to replace a lawyer and he has chosen two excellent new representatives. I wish them luck, says Hurtig.
