Who else is excited that Assange has been offered political refugee status by Mexico?
Can't think of a safer place. The U.S could never get to him in Mexico.
For the record, I think Assange is a good guy and all charges should be dropped because he never did anything wrong.
@snack yeah I’m worried about the practicalities as well, but I think it sends a strong signal to the international community that journalists should not face prosecution for publishing material that’s in the public’s interest. Hopefully more offers will be extended to him.
@kindzmb Other than that though, I am excited. I love that AMLO is happy to give the middle finger to the US (no matter who the president is).
