Why is Julian Assange still under House Arrest? It’s the American Hegemon* harassing the Custodian of the Empire’s Secrets.
*Hegemony derives from a Greek term that translates simply as “dominance over” and that was used to describe relations between city-states.

Two members of the German parliament, the Bundestag, visited Julian Assange in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London on Thursday to pass on their “greetings of solidarity from the [opposition] Left party and his many supporters from Germany,” and to discuss the possibility of a “humanitarian solution” to the WikiLeaks founder’s legal situation.
Sevim Dagdelen and Heike Hänsel, who also sit on the Bundestag’s foreign affairs committee, traveled to London as Ecuador increases the pressure to end Assange’s six-year stay in the embassy.
“He was really happy to see us, he hugged us tightly when we left,” Dagdelen told DW after the hourlong meeting, which she said was his first visit from parliamentarians in at least eight months. “It was obvious that he was happy about our visit.”
