Anyone know who the guy might be sitting in back of him during the speech he read?

Do you mean the guys inside the embassy that filmed Assange's speech?

No... the guy sitting out of sight holding onto his belt to pull him back into the sanctuary of the embassy should one of the Bobbies run over, grab him, and drag him out over the railing into British custody...

No..blow up my picture and look inside the building behind his back in the shadows...

I think this comment has merit..also don't think he will be in there long...it's not the hilton..were not even any beds when he walked in..

Civil Disobedience

It's funny how people forget that civil disobedience doesn't preclude punishment; in fact, in the Gandhi/Thoreau model, it is necessary to go to jail and be the prisoner of conscience in the jail of a coercive government.

Besides, as I recall, the United Kingdom was about to extradite Assange to Sweden to face sexual assault charges. I think he's still in trouble, even were the US to give him a pass on the, um, disclosure voodoo he practiced? Which brings me to my next point.

Now we suspect that English isn't his first language, so perhaps this is a minor point, but a witch-hunt is a zealous search for people who behave differently so as to try them (and find them guilty and burn them) and assuage an angry god currently punishing a community. The metaphor is a tad stretched for his situation. Assange released embarrassing documents and the powerful don't like to be embarrassed. He did it - it's no frame or implication by out of the norm behavior or by being a non-submissive female - and except for some metaphorical "God of National Security" there is no supernatural entity to be appeased by his sacrifice. No, it's just a garden variety instance of attempting to [profane four-letter word]-up the guy who put "Soothe Foreign Dignitaries But Don't Give Them Too Much on Treaties, Aid, Etc." on the State Department's full To-Do List."

Might be Baltasar Garzon who is Assange's "legal adviser".

I've got it!

The Brits should only allow Indian Curries to be delivered to Assange. The Ecuadorians won't be able to take the "fallout" from that for long and will boot him out.

And the young lady in your photo is serving in what capacity? That was never a typical paralegal or secretarial outfit in any legal meetings I've ever attended...

I think the girl is just a news reporter and the photo was set up...so what is the red tank and hoses in the corner by the wall with the holes in it ?

Edit: figured it out ..fire extinguisher and looks like was mounted on the wall at one time.

I was looking for a tank top and panty-hose.
