Supporters march on embassy to fight for 'persecuted hero' Julian Assange

WikiLeaks has said two high-level sources within the Ecuadorian state have confirmed Assange will be ejected within "hours to days".
The anti-secrecy organisation said its sources in Ecuador had revealed Mr Assange could be removed from the building "within hours to days".
In a series of tweets Friday, former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson, who describes herself as a close friend of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, called on Jeremy Corbyn to become Britain's prime minister and demanding Assange be given "safe passage to Australia" while blaming his potential expulsion from Ecuador's embassy in London on President Donald Trump.

WikiLeaks in a statement called Moreno's charges "completely bogus", saying it reported on the accusations of corruption against the president only after Ecuador's legislature investigated the issue.
Holed up in the building since 2012, Assange had applied for asylum there to avoid being extradited to Sweden to face sexual assault charges. Assange has been a refugee inside the embassy since 2012, fearing that if he were to be arrested the UK would extradite him to the United States to stand trail for publishing classified information.
Police said in a statement there is an active warrant for Assange's arrest and that the police are "obliged to execute that warrant should he leave the Embassy".
Following the release of papers Lenin Moreno also accused Wikileaks of intercepting his phone calls and private conversations.
Assange's defence team suggested on Twitter that Moreno was trying to use the scandal to pressure the WikiLeaks founder.
Mr Moreno today renewed his attack, telling the Ecuadorian Radio Broadcasters' Association that Mr Assange has "repeatedly violated" his terms of asylum.
Julian Assange's relationship with his hosts at the Ecuadorean embassy has deteriorated to such an extent that it is now that of a prisoner with prison guards, a spokesman for Wikileaks has told The Times.
The president also noted that Ecuador was seeking an arrangement with the United Kingdom which would enable him to leave the embassy.
Assange, who was granted Ecuadorian citizenship previous year in an apparent effort to designate him a diplomat and allow him to go to Russian Federation, sued Ecuador for violating his rights as an Ecuadorian.
Last month, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, which is linked to the Organization of American States, rejected Assange's request that Ecuador ease the conditions it has imposed on his residence in the London embassy.
