WikiLeaks: vote on Julian Assange in Washington DC on Monday
Is Julian Assange a humanist of the highest order or is he a rapist, crook like some Western government officials and politicians are insisting?
In spite of the general outbursts that Julain Assange has put human lives in danger, some people in southwest Asia believe the cables that he released to the world's premier media outlets like The Guardian and The New York Times might actually save human lives in the long haul.
An organization espousing the independence of Balochistan in southwest Asia, the American Friends of Balochistan is organizing a Press briefing and talk entitled "WikiLeaks, Balochistan and U.S. Foreign Policy."
The WikiLeaks cables have showed that the U.S. government organizations are relying heavily on Pakistan Inter-Services Intelligence and military -- the fourth largest in the world and one armed with nuclear weapons -- when it comes to the future of Balochistan.
In spite of grave violations of human rights in Balochistan, the U.S. appears to be doing business as usual with Pakistan even though the Kerry-Lugar Bill has has tied any foreign aid to Pakistan with its annual progress on human rights.
The talk is being held Second Floor, Reeves Center (DC Government building) at 11 am sharp. The Reeves center is between 14th and U Streets. The closest metro station is U Street/African-Amer Civil War Memorial/Cardozo station on the Greenline.
The Press talk is open to the general public.
A vote will be also be held if Assange is a humanist or a rapist.
