Operation HotPockets Is Launching To Help Julian Assange Get Back On Line.
by Pamela Williams
Operation HotPockets is being launched to help Julian Assange after all he has done to bring the public awareness of hidden government workings. The movement is calling for people to go to the Ecuadorian embassy with open mobile Wi-Fi hotspots, taking turns to ensure that the WikiLeaks founder is able to stay online. It is a noble endeavor, but it remains to be seen if it will work.

The operation is scheduled to happen tomorrow. There’s no word on how many people will show up, or if Assange is even aware of its existence. Given 4Chan and Twitter have responded enthusiastically to the idea, I’d be surprised if there wasn’t a large turnout.
Ecuador kicking Assange off the Embassy Wi-Fi seemingly hasn’t had much of an impact on the activities of WikiLeaks. Its Twitter account is still active, and earlier today it posted another caché of emails from Clinton campaign chief John Podesta.
