Christine Assange is the mother of Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange. This is the first interview she has given following her trip to Ecuador. Christine talks about the people of Ecuador and Julian’s life as a refugee in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. She reveals the personal and professional price paid for exposing truth and explains how the behavior of governments has forever changed her view of political leaders. Christine shares some history making leaks that earned Julian an Australian Walkley Award equivalent to The Pulitizer for “most outstanding contribution to journalism” and answers questions about and the US Government’s ongoing efforts to silence him and criminalize whistleblowers. Christine touches on Ecuador’s pressure on Sweden to interview Julian at the Embassy, President Correa’s battle against his Nation’s ruling class media and deafening silence of US/UK/Australia MegaMedia who fail to defend free press, free speech, accountable government or Wikileaks and ways individuals can help.
