Thoughts in the 3 hours before Julian Assange’s full extradition hearing.

This is the big hearing, the one that’s supposed to take 3-4 weeks. I’ve followed prior extradition hearings, since we had the ones related to the Swedish allegations, but those didn’t take near as long.
I’ve even gone ahead and rescheduled some Doctor appointments, well the doctor was going to be in a meeting anyway, so I just rescheduled it until after the hearing was definitely going to be over. This is the hearing that’s in the magistrate’s court, the one we’ll probably loos. Although I’m praying for that not to be the case, but the judge seems to have rulings written down days before she makes them.
I actually got to listen to one of the hearings via conference call once. Although even I had trouble hearing, I could hear Baraitser, (that’s the judge,) fine, but had a hard time hearing everyone else. Although I laughed when baraitser said that they seemed to have lost the prosecutor, because we couldn’t hear him anyway. I couldn’t laugh out loud though, because my phone wasn’t muted. Then I went to shift my phone into a different position, because my ear was going numb from nearly planting my phone inside of it for so long. When I did that, I knew voiceOver would say something as soon as my screen went dim. In fact it said, “screen dimmed.” We proceeded to get lectured by Baraitser for not muting our mics, woopsy!!! Then a couple people said “we can’t hear” and Baraitser got frustrated. I’m pretty sure that was the hearing that postponed the proceedings until September, although we didn’t know when at the time.
I forgot to write the conference call code down before I went to put it in, and the page was taken down after that. I never had access again. I think it was erroneously made public. Either that, or they didn’t realize it really wasn’t supposed to be made public until later.
