Assange Will Get Aboriginal Passport
Just Julian Assange's luck: He's being offered a passport, but it's from a nation that doesn't exist. In a symbolic gesture of support, an Aboriginal group in his native Australia today issued the passport in his name and presented it to Assange's father, reports the Sydney Morning Herald. The Indigenous Social Justice Association is fighting for sovereignty within Australia, and it wanted to express solidarity with Assange, who it says has been left high and dry by the Australian government. Assange, meanwhile, remains in the Ecuador embassy in London as he tries to avoid extradition to Sweden.
