Video: Watch Julian Assange's address to the Oxford Union

WIKILEAKS founder Julian Assange's address to the Oxford Union is now viewable on the video below.

The Union last month invited Mr Assange to speak during the Sam Adams Award ceremony that recognsies people who show devotion to the truth.

Yet, because he is claiming political asylum inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and would arrested over allegations of sexual assaults in Sweden should he take a step outside, the Australian made his address via a videolink.

However, the Union's decision to invite Mr Assange led to a protest by about 40 people outside during the event on Wednesday last week.

The Sam Adams award was won by Thomas Fingar, a former US official who reported in 2008 that Iran had halted its nuclear missile programme.

Not until those allegations of sexual assault have been resolved one way or another.

They never will until the Swedes will give an assurance that the Yanks will not be able to get their grubby hands on him. These are trumped up charges designed to let the Yanks get their revenge. Free the Embassy One.
