Quito, August 29, 2012

 To the above mentioned joined the support of organizations of the civil society and regional and hemispheric integration organisms to the decision of Ecuador of granting diplomatic asylum to Julian Assange and to reject the threat of the United Kingdom of intervening in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to arrest him.

We attached the text of the open letter:

Freedom of information has had one of its biggest defenders in Julian Assange, today persecuted for showing the world the real and deep bottoms of the international relations. Unveiling the true face of the power games has lead Assange to the imputation of absurd charges, at the same time unleashing the dynamic of a surprising violation of the international law and the international codes of behavior with the threat of Great Britain of intervening on Ecuadorian territory (Embassy, official cars, etc) to keep Assange’s right to asylum from consummating.
