Assange in crowdfunding drive to build a statue of himself!
Assange has used the whistleblowing website’s official Twitter account to publicise a funding drive for the creation of a life-size bronze public artwork featuring himself, Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden, described as a “a monument to courage”.

The proposed statue by Italian sculptor Davide Dormino, entitled Anything to Say?, will depict the trio standing on chairs, with another empty seat beside them onto which members of the public will be encouraged to climb - allowing them to stand shoulder to shoulder with the whistleblowers.

Organisers need £100,000 to complete the project, a sum they hope to raise by 1 Jan through the crowd-funding website Kickstarter. With just 21 days to go, only £19,360 has been pledged.
