Julian Assange Moved to Prison Health Ward as His Health Rapidly Deteriorates Behind Bars
Whistle-blower Julian Assange, who has been charged with 18 felony counts by the Trump administration, is in grave condition at Belmarsh prison as his health is deteriorating rapidly.
His world-renowned journalism organization, WikiLeaks, released the following tweet yesterday updating their followers on the status of Assange:
WikiLeaks has grave concerns about the state of health of our publisher, Julian Assange, who has been moved to the health ward of Belmarsh prison. – See full statement: pic.twitter.com/HnZVks4kWj

At the present time, Assange is serving a 50-week sentence in a British prison for the alleged crime of skipping bail. He was detained because Ecuador finally gave him up after granting him asylum in the British embassy for many years.
The U.S. has charged Assange with 17 felony counts under the Espionage Act and an additional unsealed felony charge. It is widely believed that emails from Hillary Clinton and the DNC published by WikILeaks in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election helped seal Donald Trump’s victory.
While the deep state wants to paint Assange as a criminal actor and a subversive enemy of the state, he has released a tremendous amount of information that has exposed government and private corruption that would have been otherwise ignored by the fake news media.
Cassandra Fairbanks, one of the last journalists to actually meet with Assange, appeared on the One America News Network to discuss what is happening to the whistle-blower:
Free speech advocates on the Left and the Right are up in arms about the mistreatment of Assange and the precedent his prosecution may set against the 1st Amendment. The Trump administration is attempting to extradite him to the U.S. so he can be formally charged in the court of law.
The Vichy journalists of the MSM have finally taken fright that the monstrous US charges against Julian #Assange are now a threat to them. Yet the cowards at the NYT, the Guardian etc continue to smear this heroic man who shamed them by refusing to join their gatekeepers' club.

Between exposing massive US war crimes & then committing the even-worse sin of publishing docs harmful to Hillary & the DNC, Julian Assange is so despised in the west that even slowly torturing him to death with no medical care – what's been happening – is viewed as justified: https://t.co/C6lKHzj034

US Empire wants to set an example with Wikileaks, Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning.
They say to whistleblowers and journalists that if you reveal our secrets we will destroy you.
If you want to know the truth you must defend the truth-tellers. Do something. Now is the time.

President Donald Trump was once a big fan of WikiLeaks back when their disclosures helped him on the campaign trail.
Now, he acts like he’s never even heard of Assange and WikiLeaks when questioned by reporters.
With Assange being in such poor condition that he reportedly cannot engage in a simple conversation with his attorney, It is possible Assange doesn’t even survive extradition. Perhaps that is what the deep state would like to have happen.
