Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning did not fire those 30 mm cannons and kill civilians and journalist, the United States government did. If you condemn Julian and Chelsea then you condone the war crimes they sacrificed their liberty to expose.

Thousands evacuated as Canary Isles sandstorm fuels wildfires https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/02/thousands-evacuated-canary-isles-sandstorm-fuels-wildfires-200224125723860.html
#AssangeCase is revolting. A parody of justice in a kangaroo court! A pathetic attempt at justifying the unjustifiable: the persecution of journalistic activities, revealing war crimes and lies to the world without compromises, in a raw, uncensorable way.

We all think of plants as silent, but they're not. 🌱
Plant bioacoustics is the study of how plants generate and respond to sound. Turns out, plants aren't silent at all. It's just that the sounds they make are outside our hearing range, mostly being ultrasound.
Plants which are distressed by lack of water even squeal at around 20-100 kHz. We can't hear that, but some animals can. Moths will even avoid these distressed plants and lay their eggs on healthier leaves.
