Celebration ensued here this morning!
Ecuador decided that it would grant the wikileaks founder’s request for asylum! This happened despite several threats from the UK, that it would enter the embacy and arrest Assange. The UK foreign secritary released a statement saying that he was disappointed in the decision. I, on the other hand, am definitely not disappointed, and neither are the wikileaks supporters I follow on twitter! Soon after the announcement, (which I watched live,) I was watching a stream from outside the embacy, and there was lots of cheering going on! Of course I decided to celebrate too, and the dance I did to don’t stop believing was more than the twists, it was mostly in the ballet position of relevé . I think I stayed in that position longer than I have in like 13 years!
