I would like to contribute to this thread by posting these recent leaks concerning Assange.http://uk.businessinsider.com/highlight ... 018-2?IR=T
In these messages Assange comes off as a thoroughly unpleasant individual. His comments about Chelsea Manning (and women in general) are absolutely abominable. Besides these recent leaks, it's widely known that he has actively campaigned for the worst types of reactionary nationalism. I would like to ask DiEM25 to stop associating with such a despicable individual, who stands against every principle upon which this movement was founded: internationalism, solidarity, inclusiveness. Julian Assange needs to be removed from the Advisory Panel as soon as possible, if we don't want to tarnish DiEM25's reputation. I wonder, do Varoufakis, Horvat and Chomsky know that they are actively associating themselves with a man who has cooperated with Trump, Putin and Farage? And if they do, how can they possibly justify that?
