Despite his condition of being granted asylum in the Embassy of Ecuador, Julian Assange continues with his work with WikiLeaks, reporting against the United States diplomacy.
Through a video message played out in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, Assange presented the new work of his organization. Now it comes to publish more than 1.7 million U.S. diplomatic documents, dating from the 70’s.
Assange said that those cables were already declassified, from Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he’s a refugee for 9 months to avoid extradition to Sweden over a case of alleged rape and sexual assault.
“The messages were hidden in a border between secrecy and complexity,” Assange held a videoconference with journalists in Washington. Shortly after its introduction, the National Archives of the United States, explained that the 1973-1976 documents released by WikiLeaks had been published since 2006, and even gave an address on the Internet for viewing them in their databases.
Assange had previously reported that such documents were not accessible except through the U.S. National Archives, in a searchable format that prevents concrete words contained in the documents.
According to Assange those cables, reports and maps show the “full range and domain of U.S. influence in the world.” This presentation took place one week after the Ecuadorian ambassador in London, Ana Alban, met with the Labour Party, to seek a solution to the precarious future of the hacker.
