Assange Agonistes

Julian about to break silence at Ecuador embassy in London, and possibly turn himself in, while cops--and media--swarm outside.    UPDATE: Spoke for just a few minutes.  Thanked supporters, Ecuador government, other backer.  Vowed to fight on.  Called for freeing of Bradley Manning.  Mentioned Pussy Riot, then gone.  See video below of whole thing.  The Guardian has a live blog.  "There must be no more foolish talk about prosecuting any media organisation, be it Wikileaks or the New York Times....The US war on whistleblowers must end."  Here's full BBC report.
