Today is Julian Assange’s 52nd birthday. While there is little to celebrate with Julian down to his last chance at appealing his extradition to the United States, moments like this can be used to educate, remember and cherish stories related to the WikiLeaks founder. From the ScheerPost archives, dozens of writers have come to Julian’s side in support, defense and ultimately hope that the grand injustice he has faced thus far can find a positive resolution. The ever-growing tide of support for Julian is heartening, including backing from five of the world’s most influential news organizations—The New York Times, The Guardian, Le Monde, Der Spiegel and El Pais. However, it is disheartening to witness his deteriorating condition and diminishing chances of regaining his freedom with each passing day. Feel free to explore some of our previously published articles on Julian from Chris Hedges to Craig Murray to John Kiriakou, as well as a gallery from our own Mr. Fish:
