Update: On June 17, the British court ordered the extradition to the United States of Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange, who exposed war crimes. Assange is an Australian citizen. Take action.
Julian Assange is charged under the Espionage Act. He is not a spy. He is a journalist. He provided information of public interest to the whole world, not a foreign adversary.
"Because western media are designed to protect the powerful, most people are more aware of smears about Assange being a Russian agent or a rapist than of his victimization by a tyrannical assault on world press freedoms..."
John and Gabriel Shipton, the father and brother of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, are on a nationwide tour to advocate for the release of the journalist, who has been detained in Britain since 2012, and for the Biden administration to drop the U.S. Government’s extradition efforts.
"Assange’s family members will meet with activists, press, and policymakers to raise awareness of the importance of protecting whistleblowers and journalists, and to advocate for the release of Julian Assange, whom the United Nations has declared “arbitrarily detained” since 2010."
“The prevailing atmosphere has been shocking. I say that without hesitation; I have sat in many courts and seldom known such a corruption of due process; this is due revenge.” John Pilger
