People power delays Ecuador’s asylum betrayal of Julian Assange

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris examine the reasons behind Ecuador’s Foreign Minister stating that they have no plans of revoking Julian Assange’s asylum status. After news broke that Ecuador was planing on expelling Assange from their London Embassy, people gathered in the streets of London, and online voices blasted Ecuador’s decision to deliver Assange to UK authorities, with eventual extradition to the United States.

The Ecuadorian government was compelled to quickly release a statement refuting the news of Assange’s expulsion.
