The special relationship Down Under

I am currently in the USA with my family and in-laws. My wife opened a copy of the New York Times to discover a full-page advert with a statement about Australia-US relations that had been signed by 90,000+ Australians. The statement concerns the poor treatment of Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, by the US and Australian governments. It is organised by GetUp! a new internet based Australian political. There is much that I would not agree with  GetUp!  but I thought this was a well thought out and valid statement and so I just signed it.
