Assange Hearing Day 1
The affair around Julian Assange is of course an attack on freedom of the press, but it is much more, it is an attack on democracy and that by war criminals. Woolwich Crown Court is designed to impose the power of the state. Normal courts in this country are public buildings, deliberately placed by our ancestors right in the centre of towns, almost always just up a few steps from a main street. The major purpose of their positioning and of their architecture was to facilitate public access in the belief that it is vital that justice can be seen by the public.
