Julian Assange spoke out Friday after rape charges against him were dropped by Swedish prosecutors.
"Today is an important victory for me, and for the UN human rights system. But it by no means erases seven years of detention without charge – in prison, under house arrest, and almost five years here in this embassy without sunlight," Assange said from the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy in the UK.
"Seven years without charge, while my children grew up without me. That is not something that I can forgive, it is not something that I can forget.
"The inevitable inquiry into what has occurred in this moment of terrible injustice is something that I hope will be more than just about me, and this situation, because the reality is, detention and extradition without charge has become a feature of the EU.
"A feature which has been exploited, yes, in my case, for political reasons, but for other cases have subjected many people to terrible injustices."

Despite Sweden dropping charges, the UK says they'll still arrest him under a separate warrant for skipping bail back in 2012.
