THOSE INCITING MURDER UPON JULIAN ASSANGE AND/OR MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY.
We, among many law abiding citizens of the world deplore and condemn, as applicable, your utterances and writings calling for the extra judicial ie unlawful: kidnapping/assassination/murder/physical harm of Julian Assange, his supporters, Wikileaks workers or members of Assange's family.
We remind you of the laws in your country and others against incitement, inter alia:
In English criminal law, incitement was an anticipatory common law offence and was the act of persuading, encouraging, instigating, pressuring, or threatening so as to cause another to commit a crime....The inciter must intend the others to engage in the behaviour constituting the offence, including any consequences which may result, and must know or believe (or possibly suspect) that those others will have the relevant mens rea."
Codified Incitement Law:
(1) Australian Commonwealth
(1) A person who urges the commission of an offence is guilty of the offence of incitement.
(2) For the person to be guilty, the person must intend that the offence incited be committed.
464. Except where otherwise expressly provided by law, the following provisions apply in respect of persons who counsel other persons to commit offences, namely,(a) every one who counsels another person to commit an indictable offence is, if the offence is not committed, guilty of an indictable offence and liable to the same punishment to which a person who attempts to commit that offence is liable; and
(3) United Kingdom
(1)A person commits an offence if—
(a)he does an act capable of encouraging or assisting the commission of an offence; and
(b)he intends to encourage or assist its commission.
There is no automatic 1st Amendment protection per
Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444 (1969):
Freedoms of speech and press do not permit a State to forbid advocacy of the use of force or of law violation except where such advocacy is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action
We remind you that while such prima facie incitement by way of utterances and writings may go unpunished in your country, they will not necessarily go unpunished in others, and especially so should you have the courage of your convictions to repeat them in those other jurisdictions.
We ask you respectfully, to contemplate this writing of Mahatma Ghandi:
An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self sustained.
And that truth is that Julian Assange is no terrorist; he is not a war defined "belligerent" acting against the United States; he cannot ever be a "traitor"to the USA since by definition he is not a citizen of the United States.
And lastly as Ron Paul put it so well:
In a society where truth becomes treason, however, we are in big trouble. The truth is that our foreign spying, meddling and outright military intervention in the post-World War 2 era has made us less secure, not more, and we have lost countless lives and spent trillions of dollars for our trouble. Too often it’s the official government lies that have given us endless and illegal wars resulting in hundreds of thousands of deaths and casualties.

From a different perspective:- Like him or feel hatred towards him - How many people actually know Julian Assange?
Before we decide whether we like someone - perhaps we should take time to listen to what they have to say. On a previous article an indepth honest interview is posted with video.
Julian Assange has taken huge risk to speak the truth to the people. It is my ethical obligation to speak the truth to you too.
Ethical people do not stay silent.
There is concern with pressure and manipulation where not only Julian Assange life is being threatened but also his supporters. The truth has been exposed. Even with my limited understanding - lying on oath was said to be considered a serious crime.
Politicans, lawyers and officials who have lied on oath are being exposed and so therefore as evidence comes forward, surely this means they must be prosecuted? Yes they protect each other!
It is time for people to demand ethical leadership! Do not turn a blind eye to the lies and obstructing of justice - out of fear?
Fraud and obstructing justice are serious crimes!
We will see ethical leadership when we see an end to war that continues under different guises. We will see ethical leadership when we see justice in the courts. We will see ethical leadership when there is ZERO TOLLERANCE for Corruption. When?
Until then you are the leader in your life - Make your decisions wisely and be very careful who you invest your trust to lead your life. Get to know your Human Rights.
Please share this important message - My articles are written for everyone, including those who find the temptation to lie to be paid. For every lie there is consequence. Many professions carry responsiblity but not everyone cares about what this means.
I trained in holistic health, psychotherapy and business performanace coaching, plus other areas to assist healing and empowerment. My determination to expose legal corruption is since I have experienced this personally, having listened to lawyers and police boasting of lying and innocent people in prison. If you choose not to see the cause of suffering and loss in this world - lawyers arrogantly boast about lies that are told.
Politicans and policies relate to law making.
Politicans know about law breaking too!
