  • One man, believed to be involved with the Ecuadorian embassy, looks up at the building ahead of the announcements. The unnamed man introduced a number of people to speak to the media ahead of Assange's statement.

  • Craig Murray, former ambassador to Uzbekistan, spoke to the media ahead of Assange's statement, responding to questions about British law and police entering the embassy to "legally" arrest the Wikileaks founder.

  • A riot police vehicle remains hidden from sight, but prepared in case protesters become riled. In many past cases, anarchists have hijacked peaceful demonstrations and protests and the police have reacted often with excessive force and tactics.
