World News / Sweden drops Assange rape investigation
« Last post by Gefn on Today at 08:20:21 AM »
Prosecutors in Sweden have dropped an investigation into a rape allegation made against Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange in 2010.

Assange, who denies the accusation, has avoided extradition to Sweden for seven years after seeking refuge at the Ecuadorean embassy in London in 2012.

The 48-year-old Australian was evicted last month and sentenced to 50 weeks in jail for breaching his bail conditions.

He is currently being held at Belmarsh prison in London.

Poff worked at a fireworks stand for nine years, according to prosecutors, and “knew what she was doing.”


And I've made many a trip to their donation "Drop Off".

And I've donated a truck as well. I also have a boat I may see if they'll take as well.
It mentions the Amazon, so I'll be severely disappointed if making the systematic destruction of rain forest a sin doesn't bring it to an immediate halt.
World News / Is It Time Gauguin Got Canceled?

LONDON — “Is it time to stop looking at Gauguin altogether?”

That’s the startling question visitors hear on the audio guide as they walk through the “Gauguin Portraits” exhibition at the National Gallery in London.

The artist “repeatedly entered into sexual relations with young girls, ‘marrying’ two of them and fathering children,” reads the wall text. “Gauguin undoubtedly exploited his position as a privileged Westerner to make the most of the sexual freedoms available to him
