In support of Julian Assange
Julian Assange is at risk of being extradited to the United States and sentenced to life imprisonment. The reason? To have done his job as a journalist by publishing documents that prove war crimes by the United States and other countries. For 12 years, the WikiLeaks founder has been deprived of his freedom: first as a political refugee in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, now detained in the British maximum security prison of Belmarsh, surrounded by a chilling media silence. We cannot accept this. In the name of freedom of information and the defense of human rights, we would like to express our full support to Julian Assange and his family.
