The extra-territorial application of US legislation is contrary to international law and will lead to countermeasures that will hurt US businesses

Trade wars are contrary to the rules of the marketplace. A good capitalist believes in free trade without financial blockades and sanctions.

"Competition" entails a level playing field. If the game is rigged, there is no competition.

The US government is full of contradictions and paradoxes. If you advocate "competition", you must play by the rules, not invent them as you go along.

Under article 3 of the #UN Convention Against Torture #Assange simply cannot be extradited to the #US. No ifs, no buts

The principle of non-refoulement laid down in the Refugee Convention is jus cogens. #Assange certainly qualifies under the article 1 definition of someone with a well-founded fear of political persecution #HandsOffVenezuela

The 1951 #Geneva Refugee Convention will be rendered meaningless if a political refugee like #Assange does not receive international protection

According to Wight, the verdict on British justice is "guilty of being a US vassal; guilty of the violation of Assange’s human rights; guilty of putting truth and justice behind bars and setting untruth and injustice free" @JohnWight1

John Wight's latest op-ed reads "Assange is not on trial. British justice is". I would add, Ecuadorian, Swedish and US justice as well @JohnWight1

The Gulf of Tonkin "incident" of 1964 was a shameful false flag. Are we now going to witness a Gulf of Oman resolution ???

Many in the 1930's warned against the Third Reich for aggression. Where is a modern-day Churchill to condemn #US sabre-rattling and aggression?

The policies of the #Trump government are in the bullying tradition of Andrew Jackson, Theodore Roosevelt, George W. Bush. Not new, but not any less frightful

The 1951 #Geneva Refugee Convention clearly covers the Assange case -- if the case is submitted to the European Court of Human Rights, it will so decide. the #UN Convention against Torture similarly applies and prohibits extradition in such a case as Assange's #Assange

#Assange is a journalist and deserves the solidarity of all journalists worldwide

In 1989 the European Court of Human Rights held that human rights take precedence over extradition treaties and prohibited the extradition of a murderer Soering to the US to face the death penalty

British home secretary signed the extradition order of #Assange. Yet, the principle of non-refoulement is jus cogens. the UK simply cannot extradite a refugee.

Bravo Bernie Sanders for saying the truth. The case against Lula was trumped up, his conviction wrong, and therefore Lula must be released #Lula @SenSanders

The US extradition request to the UK must be denied. Assange is a journalist who has done his work as a journalist. The extradition request contravenes the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights #Assange
