A sculpture of Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange and whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning, returned to Berlin on Wednesday as Germany’s Bundestag held a public hearing on Assange’s UK extradition case.
The event was organised by German political party, Die Linke (The Left), and marks the second time the artwork, titled ‚Anything to Say?,‘ has been on display in the German capital. The sculpture was created by Italian artist Davide Dormino who was present at the rally.
The demonstration was also attended by Assange’s father John Shipton, Wikileaks Editor-in-Chief Kristinn Hrafnsson, Die Linke key figures Dietmar Bartsch and Sara Wagenknecht, amongst others.
„He [Julian Assange] is, as Nils Melzer describes, suffering from years of psychological torture, increasing psychological torture – increasing psychological torture. So it’s quite moving to see Julian. He may die there [Belmarsh],“ warned Shipton.
Assange is currently incarcerated in London’s Belmarsh Prison while he faces extradition…

ISOLATION IS TORTURE #PrayforJulian
Exploding real estate prices, zero interest rate and a rising stock market – the rich are getting richer. What danger lies in wait for average citizens?
For years, the world’s central banks have been pursuing a policy of cheap money. The first and foremost is the ECB (European Central Bank), which buys bad stocks and bonds to save banks, tries to fuel economic growth and props up states that are in debt. But what relieves state budgets to the tune of hundreds of billions annoys savers: interest rates are close to zero.
The fiscal policies of the central banks are causing an uncontrolled global deluge of money. Experts are warning of new bubbles.

Homelessness, hunger and shame: poverty is rampant in the richest country in the world. Over 40 million people in the United States live below the poverty line, twice as many as it was fifty years ago. It can happen very quickly.
Many people in the United States fall through the social safety net. In the structurally weak mining region of the Appalachians, it has become almost normal for people to go shopping with food stamps. And those who lose their home often have no choice but to live in a car. There are so many homeless people in Los Angeles that relief organizations have started to build small wooden huts to provide them with a roof over their heads. The number of homeless children has also risen dramatically, reaching 1.5 million, three times more than during the Great Depression the 1930s. A documentary about the fate of the poor in the United States today.
