  • Julian Assange stands on the balcony — around six feet away from U.K. soil — as he criticizes the U.S. government for the "witch hunt" against his organization, Wikileaks.

  • Assange's pre-prepared statement was cautious to avoid political rhetoric as this would have breached his asylum conditions with the Ecuadorian government. However, the statement was very strongly worded in opposition of the U.S. government's tactics and actions.

  • A camera operator can be seen to the bottom-left of the picture, taking close-up video of Assange's speech, which lasted no more than 10 minutes.
