Some commentators have expressed surprise that Sweden wasn't given a heads up - after all, the reason Assange turned up at the Ecuadorian embassy on June 19, 2012, was because he had lost his UK Supreme Court appeal against extradition to Sweden on allegations of sexual assault and rape.
"Despite being sick and in pain from prolonged detention and torture".
"He needs us to stay strong to keep him strong in the battles ahead!"
The accusation was first made against Assange in 2012 and led to charges from the Swedish government.
Actress Pamela Anderson - a friend of Assange - has said the United Kingdom is "America's bitch" in response to the arrest.
"It would be right to extradite him to Sweden, it would not be right to extradite him to America, at this point in proceedings", James said.
"Certainly, this is an issue of vengeance or revenge of the U.S. political establishment".

They opened with a 20-14 record, but James suffered a strained groin on December 25. Johnson called an impromptu press conference Tuesday where he announced the news .
President Donald Trump declared that "I know nothing about WikiLeaks" after Assange was hauled out of the Ecuadorean Embassy.
Ms Massi Fritz said in a text message sent to the Associated Press that "we are going to do everything" to have the Swedish case reopened "so Assange can be extradited to Sweden and prosecuted for rape".
The WikiLeaks founder's arrest Thursday was sudden: immediately after being told of his arrest, British police stormed the Kensington district embassy building and grabbed him, having been warned by Ecuadorian authorities of threats Assange had reportedly made to Jaime Merchan, the Ecuadorian ambassador to the United Kingdom: that he would hit a "panic button" that would bring "devastating consequences" to the embassy if he felt threatened or feared arrest. He has been arrested under a USA extradition warrant for conspiring with Chelsea Manning to publish classified information, specifically those related to supposed war crimes committed by the US army in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Many of those donations have come in the 24 hours since Assange was taken into custody.
Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott said Assange should face the criminal justice system if Swedish authorities decide to charge him.
Worse, the implication that the charges were dropped following the standard course of a preliminary investigation is misleading, and risks damaging a potential future rape probe into Assange. He had stayed inside the embassy building for almost seven years. The allegations by two women have not been tested in court and Assange has denied wrongdoing.
