Julian Assange has been arrested in England on a Swedish warrant.He will appear in court by 7:30 EST, unless granted an extension.
Assange was arrested for non-consensual sex sex charges, nothing to do with Wikileaks. If authorities try to shut down Wikileaks, remember his ominous warning:
The Cable Gate archive has been spread, along with significant material from the US and other countries to over 100,000 people in encrypted form.
