Julian Assange supporters gathered outside the Ecuadorian Embassy in Knightsbridge on Wednesday night to “fight” for his freedom of speech. The Wikileaks founder conducted a talk with the Oxford Union via video-link, which dozens of students protested against. Assange still faces extradition to Sweden in relation to sexual assault allegations. He used the talk to criticise a new film, “The Fifth Estate”, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Assange and looks at the story of Wikileaks.
