In a blog entry entitled “I Am Julian Assange” that was posted on Thursday, Westwood writes, “T-shirts for Julian: you can show your support of a real hero by going Available from Saturday, 3 November. Donations to Wikileaks have been blocked but 100% of T-shirt profits can help fund their work.”

Assange has been living at the Embassy since the summer, avoiding extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over sex offenses.
