"I would like to post this with acknowledgements to Tony Gosling. I understand the letter was first in print in the Guardian newspaper. And with our best wishes, Sue and myself, to the couple. I say this is the ultimate expression of the fascism in Britain - so long existing.
Sue brought me a small report in the Western Morning News which included a photo, with Stella in a wedding gown made by Vivienne Westwood. I note that DEA - Don't Extradite Assange, from which I get frequent updates, did not send this very truthful letter from Stella.
I see it as vengeance first of all - by the axis especially, for the telling of its most terrible crimes. That 'axis of evil' as first spoken by the psychopath Bush, but instead Israel/UK/US. One can search this phrase and find it in 'halpin surgeon'. https://dhalpin.infoaction.org.uk/search?searchword=axis%20of%20evil&searchphrase=all 11 references
This written in the certainty that the torrents of present evil will be a self limiting disease.
Finally this is the reference http://markcurtis.info/2020/01/23/julian-assanges-judge-and-her-husbands-links-to-the-british-military-establishment-exposed-by-wikileaks/ to an article by Mark Curtis ( His seminal book - Web of Deceit) and Matt Kennard, describing connections between the Lord Chief Justice and those having influence in the unlawful and most cruel incarceration of journalist Julian Assange."
‘Today I will marry the love of my life’: Julian Assange’s fiancée Stella Moris This is not a prison wedding, it is a declaration of love and resilience in spite of the prison walls, in spite of the political persecution, in spite of the arbitrary detention, in spite of the harm and harassment inflicted on Julian and our family. Their torment only makes our love grow stronger.
Every part of this private event is being intensely policed, from our guest list to the wedding picture. Behind the scenes we have been locked in a dispute with the Ministry of Justice and prison authorities, who have denied our proposed witnesses because they are journalists; and who have denied our proposed photographer because he also works as a press photographer, even though they would all attend in a private capacity.
The prison states that our wedding picture is a security risk because it could end up in social media or the press. How absurd. What kind of security threat could a wedding picture pose? Belmarsh regularly permits photography. Tommy Robinson and other convicted prisoners were allowed to be interviewed on camera when ITV filmed inside Belmarsh prison. But for Julian, who isn’t even serving a sentence, there appear to be a different set of rules.
What are they so afraid of? I am convinced that they fear that people will see Julian as a human being. Not a name, but a person. Their fear reveals that they want Julian to remain invisible to the public at all costs, even on his wedding day, and especially on his wedding day. For him to disappear from public consciousness. The press has not been permitted to photograph Julian since 2019. The last time he was photographed by the press was through the scratched windows of a Serco prison van on his way to court, shortly after his arrest on 11 April 2019.
After those pictures were published, the authorities switched his transport to vans with automatic steel shutters, which prevent even that type of press photography. Julian hasn’t been seen by the public in three years. Recently, he has not even been permitted to be in court for his own hearings.
In October, he suffered a transient ischemic (TIA) attack, or mini-stroke. The way he is being treated is cruel and inhuman, and the public doesn’t like it. So the authorities hide it from the public. Julian is being turned into prisoner X, an abstraction that is neither seen nor heard, and therefore nonexistent. Julian is being disappeared because his imprisonment is a national disgrace, an embarrassment for the British state, and a vicious, authoritarian move.
The logic of disappearing a person in the hope that they will be forgotten is what Soviet Russia did. But it’s too late to hide what is being done to him. The UN special rapporteur on torture, Nils Melzer, has deconstructed a decade of persecution and psychological torture inflicted on Julian. Julian is being made to suffer in a monstrous, undeniable, political persecution.
