Release Julian Assange

Founded in 2006 by Julian Assange, Wikileaks offers journalist and others an anonymous, secure online submission system to reveal war crimes, the inner workings of governments, human rights abuses, corporate crimes, and much more. It is one of the most important tools for journalists and whistleblowers, Assange has been one of the most important figures protecting the right to freedom of speech and press.

Thanks to Julian Assange:

  • WikiLeaks documents have informed the public about U.S. war crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, and more.
  • WikiLeaks documents have released tens of thousands of articles and academic papers.
  • WikiLeaks releases have been used in numerous court cases where human rights defenders have been on trial.
  • Julian Assange’s only “crime” is that of exposing crimes the U.S. government hoped to keep the world from knowing. Rather than being extradited to the U.S to be tried and imprisoned, he must be released immediately by the U.K. and ensured safe passage home to Australia. Add your name to our letter to Prime Minister Theresa May.

Petition

Dear Theresa May,

The fate of free speech and free press protector Julian Assange is in the hands of the United Kingdom. As prime minister, we appeal to you to do everything in your power--make a public statement, use your position and influence--to appeal to the British courts not to extradite Assange to the U.S. and instead release him immediately.

The relentless attacks on Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning and others threaten the future of free press, which is the bulwark of democracy. Thanks to Julian Assange:

  • WikiLeaks documents have informed the public about U.S. war crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, and more.
  • WikiLeaks documents have released tens of thousands of articles and academic papers.
  • WikiLeaks releases have been used in numerous court cases where human rights defenders have been on trial.
  • Rather than being a criminal, Assange is a truth teller, bringing to light war crimes and human rights abuses that must be exposed and abolished.

Assange’s health is in severe decline as a result of his years confined inside the Ecuadorian embassy. He must be given immediate medical treatment and freedom to care for himself and continue his important work.

Sincerely,

    The incredibly courageous, award-winning journalist, Julian Assange, has been viciously hunted down for nearly a decade for exposing Illegally classified atrocious crimes in powerful places. His devotion to his sources has been unmatched, and the 100% accurate publications have benefited humanity like no other.


    Julian has not committed any crime but he’s been deliberately, systematically vilified and captured through the hideous misrule of law & disregard of his human rights. Those incensed at being exposed have been out for revenge and have wanted to send a terrifying message to all truth-tellers that they can run things as they like.


    Julian Assange must not be extradited to the US. Doing so would submit him to a secretly-run Grand Jury- where he will be locked up, tortured for methods/codes/sources & permanently silenced. It will seal their Orwellian State and create an assassin’s paradise. Please save this extraordinary man, the future of democracy, the future of journalism… our very right to know!!!

    War Crimes of Governments deserve to be Exposed

    Those Brave Enough to Expose them Deserve to be Honoured not Jailed

    Stand Up For Julian and All the Brave Journalists, Publishers and Whistleblowers

    Who Risk Life and Liberty to Free the People from the Chains of Corrupt Governments

    Until They Are Free to Work Without Threat to Life We Will All Remain Enslaved In Ignorance

    Freedom for journalist and publisher Julian Assange, who’s work, as a highly valuable contribution of fundamental importance regarding freedom of press and human rights, strengthened journalism over the past decades and submitted significantly to the historic record of humanity. ‘Information is the currency of democracy’ -Thomas Jefferson,

    Therefore: any effort of governments against journalism delivering accurate information to the people is an effort to undermine democracy. Theresa May, stand for democracy.
