(Newser) – Last night Julian Assange made just his second public appearance since entering the Ecuadorian embassy in London six months ago, giving a 12-minute speech from an embassy balcony—where he promised to release a million more documents in 2013, reports New York Magazine. "WikiLeaks has already over a million documents being prepared to be released, documents that affect every country in the world. Every country in this world," said Assange.

Assange railed against his usual enemies, in particular the governments of the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. "In 2013, we continue to stand up to bullies," he said. "True democracy is not the White House. True democracy is not Canberra. True democracy is the resistance of people, armed with the truth, against lies, from Tahrir to right here in London." He also called the media "corrupt" and criticized the press for "war crimes." You can read Assange's full speech over at WikiLeaks. (Read more Julian Assange stories.)
