Ecuadorian Congresswoman Paola Vintimilla led dozens of protesters outside the Presidential Palace in Quito, on Wednesday, to call on Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno to revoke Ecuadorian citizenship from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. At least a hundred supporters of Ecuador's last President Rafael Correa also gathered outside the Presidential Palace with photos of Julian Assange to counter-protest in support for the whistleblower, who has been holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for the last six years. "I came here to demand President Lenin Moreno to annul the Ecuadorian citizenship given to Julian Assange. Irregularities occurred, too much money was used, this is a person who disrespected the Embassy in London, and all the people working there," said Congresswoman Vintimilla. "He has played soccer inside, he has a cat defecating everywhere and he has not had any rules. One of the reasons he should have been expelled from the embassy years ago is because of interference in other countries political issues. He did it with Spain, with the US, and our own," she added. Counter-protester and supporter of Julian Assange, Jorge Saavedra, said that he thinks Assange's life is in danger, adding that "after exposing all the information of the international bourgeoisie's sins to the world, he will not be absolved. The same as Snowden." On Monday, a judge in Quito ruled against Assange's request to loosen new requirements that the whistleblower claims are meant to push him into leaving his asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy. Assange was first granted refuge by Ecuador 2012 while on bail over sexual assault allegations against him in Sweden. He feared extradition to the United States. ______________________________ SOT, Paola Vintimilla, Congresswoman (Spanish): "I came here to demand President Lenin Moreno to annul the Ecuadorian citizenship given to Julian Assange.

Frank Holmes, CEO of US Global Investors, joins us to discuss bullish developments occurring in commodities and the TSX Venture exchange. Certain phenomenon such as the nearing of a golden cross, developments with the PMI, and a mixture of the fear trade and love trade from the East all spell an upward trend coming for commodities. Frank thinks we can expect a nice, long, slow move up that is both constructive and positive. He points out that in three decades, there have only been three times, that gold stocks have fallen for three years in a row. According to Frank, there are two big demands for gold that should be appreciated -- the fear trade and the love trade. Frank states that the fear trade has to do with real interest rates that the government is paying. The other sixty percent of demand is what Frank characterizes as the love trade. The love trade occurs in places like India & China that give gold as a gifts. Frank contends that the recent ban for gold imports in India will only prove to be minor detraction from purchases, but it will not affect the cultural affinity for purchasing gold. Which companies is Frank currently looking at? He prefers royalty companies like Franco Nevada, Royal Gold and Silver Wheaton over the large cap miners. When it comes down the junior end, investors should look for potential buy outs and strategic companies. Some names include Comstock Mining, Virginia Gold, and Gran Colombia Gold Corp. Overall things to look for in companies? Frank insists on management. Finally, as long as interest rates stay low, Frank believes that the Dow Jones Industrial Average continues higher. Frank E.
