Wikileaking embassy-stayer has accused Google of being born bad and getting badder as it grew. We know how Assange feels about Google, and we know how Google feels about Assange.
The WikiLeaks man, writing in a new book, entitled When Google Met WikiLeaks, says that Google is an evil, bad, government sanctioned and supporting blight on the internet. Google says that Assange is paranoid. Assange seems to have more muck to throw around, though, and accuses Google of being something of a state puppet that is possibly dangling from the arm of Hillary Clinton. He reckons that Clinton punked him through Schmidt and bagged a couple of State-suits a free lunch on his tab.Read more
Julian Assange has transcended the confinement of his Ecuadorian embassy asylum to attend the 2014 Nantucket Project – as a hologram. In his ghostly entirety Assange was speaking about censorship, control and manipulation of history.
Speaking with filmmaker Eugene Jarecki, Assange closed the 2014 event, sharing his thoughts on importance of research and free access to information, and risks of censorship. “As a researcher, I'm all too well aware of what people are now calling Google blindness, that the information you can’t find on the Internet doesn’t exist,” Assange said, not missing a chance to take on the corporation and call it a “revolving door” of NSA and close partner of the US Government.Read more
Recently, the files of FinFisher, a set of malicious programs for monitoring the users‘ activities, have become available on the Wikileaks website. It can be found with the help of some antiviruses.

In 2011 Wikileaks published information on such a development, and since that moment Julian Assange with his employees are watching for FinSpy activity for all time and sometimes they publish new data for the SpyFiles program.Read more
"I can confirm I will be leaving the embassy soon", Julian Assange told a press-conference in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
But that would not be for reasons of health. He also said he would not hand himself over to the British police. The Wikileaks whistleblower repeated his protestations of innocence over claims made against him in Sweden over allegations of rape. The Wikileaks founder said he had not been charged with anything in Sweden or the UK and that the basis of his asylum was the US Justice Department's bid to charge him with espionage. For two years, Julian Assange has remained inside the white painted rooms of Ecuador’s embassy in London.Read more

From his sanctuary in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, with roughly a dozen police officers outside, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Saturday that everyone in the world will be just as effectively monitored soon -- at least digitally.
"The ability to surveil everyone on the planet is almost there and, arguably, will be there in the next couple of years," said Assange, speaking to a large audience at the South by Southwest Interactive festival here.
Assange rocketed to international fame, and infamy, in 2010 after Wikileaks began helping publish secret government documents online.Read more
Julian Assange has called on the White House to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate NSA spying on WikiLeaks. Secret documents have revealed how the NSA spied on WikiLeaks and its followers, seeking to classify it as “a malicious foreign actor.”
In its latest release of US government documents, WikiLeaks has accused the National Security Agency of tracking its members and followers.

What would a former Gitmo detainee, a journalist in a small central Asian newspaper and an editor of a big Western publication have in common? They are provided with documents from WikiLeaks about politics in the region, but what will they do with them?
For a former Gitmo detainee, the documents reveal a bit about why he was captured – for knowing more about the movements of refugees in the area, information that he says “everybody knows.” But for editors in Central Asian capitals, WikiLeaks files are a hot potato. The documentary film dates back to 2011, when WikiLeaks activists were just starting to realize the power of the leaked US cables they had received from whistleblower Bradley (Chelsea) Manning.Read more
