Assange under siege at London Ecuador embassy

"We want to be very clear, we're not a British colony. The colonial times are over," Ecuadorean Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino said in an angry statement after a meeting with President Rafael Correa.

"The move announced in the official British statement, if it happens, would be interpreted by Ecuador as an unfriendly, hostile and intolerable act, as well as an attack on our sovereignty, which would force us to respond in the strongest diplomatic way," Patino told reporters.

We Should Do What We Can 16.Aug.2012 08:31

Den Mark, Vancouver WA

There's little we can do to pressure US & UK foreign policy, but we should do what we can do. One thing is to tell officials that we're watching & that we support Assange & Ecuador.

White House Comment Line: 202-456-1111
US State Dept.: 202-647-6575 push 8
UK Embassy: 202-588-6500 push 0 & wait
Capitol Switchboard: 800-270-0309

Ecuador Embassy:  embassy@ecuador.org

If Britain invades Ecuador's embassy in London, we should converge on nearest UK consulate. I think there's one in Seattle. Is there one in Portland?
