HACKING organisation Anonymous has threatened to “unleash the force of the internet” on the UK Government unless it releases Wikileaks founder Julian Assange after his arrest at the Ecuadorian embassy yesterday.

And the shadowy organisation claimed the world was on the brink of a “revolution”, which it would spearhead. Mr Assange was arrested by British police after they were invited into the embassy, where he has been claiming asylum since 2012. The UK must now decide whether to extradite Mr Assange to the United States, where the Department for Justice wants to question him in relaxation to claims he conspired with former US intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to download classified databases.

The lengthy video message, posted on Facebook and delivered by an animated figure closely resembling the character V from Alan Moore’s graphic novel V for Vendetta, is aimed at “the UK government and their cohorts around the world who are working to silence whistleblowers”.

The message said: “As many of you know, UK authorities have arrested Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange on behalf of the US government.

“This is a move that has been expected for some time and Assange himself has even warned us about his impending arrest.

“This arrest and the greater persecution of Wikileaks and other whistleblowers sends a clear message that these governments will stop at nothing to maintain their secrecy.

“After exposing Hillary Clinton, Assange was labeled as a Russian asset, although there is no evidence to support these claims.”

Instead, the message described Mr Assange as “a true journalist who speaks truth to power and exposes corruption whether it is on the left or the right”.

It added: “Influential people representing the governments of the UK, the United States, and Ecuador have all signed off on this unprecedented attack on journalism.

“By these actions, they are bringing the free world closer to a widespread revolution, and that is honestly what may be needed to stop these constant advances on our freedom.
