Tonight I spoke with @carlbildt at the Stockholm City Hall - I asked him to support Julian Assange and Bradly Manning. He refused. #SIF

I asked for clarification about why Sweden won't send people to question Julian in London as they do in other cases.
Jacob Appelbaum @ioerror
I also asked if Sweden would extradite Julian Assange to the US when we operate death camps (eg: #gitmo) and have the death penalty.
Jacob Appelbaum @ioerror
The response from @carlbildt was essentially that we all know what will happen to Julian Assange. Chilling.
Jacob Appelbaum @ioerror
Does @carlbildt really represent #Sweden on this issue? Does Sweden really refuse to comment about extradition of journalists facing harm?
Jacob Appelbaum @ioerror
There is a happy compromise to be made - #Sweden could easily question Julian in the Ecuadorian embassy - in service of justice.
Jacob Appelbaum @ioerror
By questioning Julian in the Ecuadorian Embassy, #Sweden will move the case forward. It also mitigates concerns of extradition to the US.
Jacob Appelbaum @ioerror
Julian and Manning are suffering injustice. @carlbildt has the power to speak out against their torture and the criminalizing of journalism.
Jacob Appelbaum @ioerror
Whenever one might say these things, politely and firmly, I encourage it. Especially when the people are powerful and the cause is Just.

I also asked about Anakata and how it was that he was kidnapped from Cambodia - I was told it was legal, though no specific law was cited.
Jacob Appelbaum @ioerror
When we see that States are not proportional in how power is wielded, such as in the case of Manning, Anakata, and Assange, please speak up!
Jacob Appelbaum @ioerror
I should clarify, I was personally invited to the #SIF event at Stockholm City Hall tonight. I did not crash it looking for trouble.
Jacob Appelbaum @ioerror
On Internet Freedom, we must remember that the cases of Manning, Anakata, and Assange are persecutions that chills speech on the internet.
