The Ecuadorian embassy has moved to prevent Julian Assange from using the internet or social media; his supporters say Ecuador has been pressured to do.
Electronic jammers have been placed inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London to prevent WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange having access to the internet or social media, sources say.
The Ecuadorian government took the measure on Tuesday evening, stopping Assange from tweeting, using the internet or phone.
He has also been refused any visitors to the embassy, where he has been living since June 2012, believing he will be extradited to the US for questioning over the activities of WikiLeaks if he leaves.
The measures follow the publication of an article in the Ecuadorian press concerning Assange’s tweets about the arrest of former Catalan president Carles Puigdemont in Germany earlier this week.
In a phone call to Assange’s lawyer on Tuesday, an adviser to Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa said the WikiLeaks founder must stop tweeting about the Catalan issue.
He was also asked to erase a tweet which said: “In 1940 the elected president of Catalonia, Lluis Companys, was captured by the Gestapo, at the request of Spain, delivered to them and executed. Today, German police have arrested the elected president of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, at the request of Spain, to be extradited.”
Assange did not erase the tweet.
His lawyer was told that a decision had been taken to isolate Assange by preventing him from communicating with the outside world and that this was “by order of the president”, say sources.
The serving Ecuadorian ambassador to Washington DC Francisco Carrion tweeted on Thursday: “The decision of the government of Ecuador to prevent Assange from tweeting is correct.”
The Ecuador government said in a statement: “The government of Ecuador has suspended the systems that allow Julian Assange to communicate to the outside of the Ecuador embassy in London.
“The measure was adopted due to Assange not complying with a written promise which he made with the government in late 2017, by which he was obliged not to send messages which entailed interference in relation to other states.”
WikiLeaks sources said there was no such agreement.
Former Greek minister Yanis Varoufakis and musician Brian Eno said in a statement: “Only extraordinary pressure from the US and the Spanish governments can explain why Ecuador’s authorities should have taken such appalling steps in isolating Julian.”
They added that the Ecuador government had only recently granted Assange citizenship, saying it must have been “leaned on mercilessly” to stop attempting to provide a diplomatic route to safety and even drive the WikiLeaks founder out of the embassy.
“Clearly, Ecuador’s government has been subjected to bullying over its decision to grant Julian asylum, support and ultimately, diplomatic status,” they said.
Ecuador briefly suspended Assange’s internet connection in 2016 during the US presidential election.
Thousands of people have signed a petition calling on the government of Ecuador to reverse its decision.

When you hear the interview of David Hogg below, you will be shocked and concerned for the power he is currently wielding in the United States. Further, as I am writing this, I am concerned that I may be ridiculed for even mentioning young Hogg’s name.
It seems he is in control of the media and is extremely intimidating to the US people. Laura Ingraham of Fox News made a comment about Hogg, and he complained. She has apologized, but he has refused her apology. He is also calling for a boycott of Fox News. Ingraham is losing advertisers, and you can see the power that young David Hogg is wielding here in our society. It is actually frightening to me, and a portent of things to come.
“Any student should be proud of a 4.2 GPA —incl. @DavidHogg111. On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the brave victims of Parkland. For the record, I believe my show was the first to feature David…(1/2)”
As you can see Hogg is angry, and he has spent much of his time recently trying to help with an advertiser boycott against Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
Basically he has made an enemy of her due to the comment she made about him on her show. However, no one is allowed to mention David Hogg’s name without being condemned.
I find this extremely unnerving as he is in the news media 24/7 saying whatever he pleases about his elders and the people of this Country.
Ingraham had tweeted out an article about Mr. Hogg revealing that four colleges had turned down his application and commented that it was “totally predictable.”
“David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.)” she wrote.
In my opinion she was basically saying , it was nothing personal against Hogg, and he should not worry about it. In her own way, she was trying to tell him that was typical.
But Hogg is not to be criticized, yet we are talking about someone who is trying to affect the Second Amendment – oh, well, no big deal – he is a young person – a child, but one who is being used as a poster boy for gun rights by the Far Left.
This is too serious of an issue to be ignored.
If he can make his way around the United States speaking about gun rights, I think we have every freedom to comment on his campaign. After all, it is a campaign – make no mistake about that.
While the Liberals sit back and praise him, he wields more and more power with the news media. We know who controls mainstream news media.
I ask that David Hogg respect my rights as an American citizen to comment on what is in the media. Is that too much to ask?

Good morning, I’m still reporting on: Is FBI Linked to Mass Shootings?, 2123
I have hesitated and hesitated and hesitated to make this link, but at some point I’m not doing the truth any favors to not mention it as a possibility.
There may be a secretive element within the FBI – or possibly not part of the FBI, but working closely with it – that will stop at nothing to help Deep State maintain its power. Unfortunately, that doesn’t just mean like – dirty tricks. I mean stopping at nothing, including a Murder, Inc., sort of system that may on the one hand work to eliminate reporters, but on another hand even be facilitating these mass shootings to serve some perverse political agenda like repeal of the 2nd amendment and the removal of the President.
Yes, evidence seems to be mounting that the FBI has been involved in support for, or encouragement of several of the mass shootings of the last few years.
I know that this concept was so out there just a few months ago, I wouldn’t even have muttered this possibility to my wife for fear of being tin-foiled. But this stonewalling of documents has now reached the emergency zone where many are wondering – why?. Three committees of the House of Representatives have now subpoenaed a total of 1.2 million documents over the course of the last 2 years and have only received around 3,000 of them. Only criminals behave this way.
