The current threat to Magnetic Island's most famous son
He grew up on Magnetic Island and has set about changing the world. Amnesty International claims his organisation, Wikileaks', role in exposing secrets between the Tunisian and US governments had a direct impact in the start of what has now become the Arab Spring. And that's just one of Julian Assanges' achievements. But, right now, his mother, Christine, is more fearful for her son's future than ever. To get an understanding of just why we suggest you read the following story.
Magnetic Times was contacted yesterday by Christine Assange, with an email titled, "Julian in grave danger", seeking reader's interest and support for Julian at this difficult time.
