On people’s need to discredit Julian Assange’s accusers.

December 10, 2010

This post will be updated as more articles are written. Feel free to leave links in the comments.

This case is such a triumph and such a bummer. On the one hand, it is hard not to be excited that consent violations of the kind that Julian Assange is being charged with are being taken seriously. However, it is impossible not to realize that these allegations are only being privileged because it suits powerful governments. Reading about this hurts my heart.

A potential trigger warning is implicit in reading any of these articles.
