Australian whistleblower, with a background is in physics, mathematics and computer programming, best known for his work with WikiLeaks, an investigative journalism Internet-based organization whose mission it is to make public otherwise secret information. Assange is spokesperson and editor-in-chief of the organization. His name became nearly a household word when on November 28, 2010 he leaked over 250,000 classified diplomatic cables of the US government and therefore caused an uproar in government circles. Prior to that he had published many classified documents and a video from the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. In August, the Swedish government posted a warrant for his arrest on rape and molestation charges. Although the rape charge was revoked a few days later on lack of evidence, the charge of molestation remained. The rape charges were resurrected and the search for Assange was on. He was located in London, and, on December 7, 2010 at 9:30 AM (according to the British press) he was arrested in London. The warrant cited "one count of unlawful coercion, two counts of sexual molestation and one count of rape, all alleged to have been committed in August 2010." Assange denies the charges and he and his many supporters feel that they are fabricated to prevent him and his colleagues from continuing to publish otherwise classified material. Assange is fighting to prevent being extradited to Sweden. In June 2012 the High Court finally denied his appeal. On 19 June 2012 Assange walked into the embassy of Ecuador in London to ask for political asylum.

In the book 'Unauthorised Autobiography' published on 22 Sep 2011 Assange himself writes: "Back in Townsville on 3 July 1971, my mother was taken to the Basel Hospital, and I was born around three in the afternoon. She says I was round, dark-haired, loud, with the look of an Eskimo." Previously, in early December 2010, Tem Tarriktar and Mary Plumb of The Mountain Astrologer magazine wrote that they received this data from a source who wished to remain anonymous but who was citing birth certificate for 2:05, 2:06 or 2:08 PM (the ink on the time was reportedly a bit smudged). The anonymous person later clarified via Tem Tarriktar that "The birth record (is) from the registry which has appended to it a copy of the birth certificate but the hour was not on the certificate but on the record in the registry files." However, as Sy Scholfield points out, Australian birth certificates do not bear a time of birth and the registry could not have had the information. Therefore this birth data remains questionable and unreliable.
