Julian Assange writes his IQ.org sequel at the Ecuadoran embassy?

by | 26th, June 2012

JULIAN Assange remains in the Ecuadoran embassy in London. The Telegraph‘s William Langley notes:

You have to hope he knows what he is doing. Ecuador exports five million tons of bananas a year, and gave the world the Panama hat, but a darkness dwells at its moist and spicy heart in the form of tinpot president Rafael Correa. Irony doesn’t quite capture the mordant weirdness of Assange seeking sanctuary in a country where the suppression of information is a flagship government policy.

Will the Wikileaks founder ever get out?

“We are an organization that does not promote leaking.”

What’s Assange doing in there? As he said:

“Why should I continue to suffer simply to try and do some good in the world? If the world is so viciously against it, why don’t I just go off and… write some books?” 

More of this? Write away…
