The Severity of the Assange Affair Reaches Year High

Yesterday marked a year high in the number of people airing their concerns regarding Assange in terms of aggression, either toward Assange himself, the Swedish judicial system, or the possible intervention of the UK Government in order to extradict Assange to Sweden. The graph below illustrates that the steep rise in volume during the past 24 to 36 hours diminishes most of the previous on line activities. Although Assange is more or less inseparable from Wikileaks in that he is heavily associated with the organization, at the moment, the public’s subject matter of concern clearly lie with Assange himself.
