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,

    Might as well delete Freedom of the Press from the Bill of Rights. If anyone deserves to be behind bars it’s Trump, his fascist cronies, and all those who support American war crimes (Hillary, etc.)!

    Why do war criminals get away with crime and truth tellers get locked up? UK can not call themselves socially just!

    The freedom of expression is paramount to keep humanity from injustices and bondage. 1000 years of Middle Ages was enough and it took much blood to where we are. Let us keep our freedom and progress.

    Julian Assange has been treated in a manner more like a police state than a Western democracy. Britain has a lot to answer for, but so does Sweden, which allowed a right-wing prosecutor to pursue Assange on a personal vendetta. The United States threatens him with a notorious kangaroo court to which it brings all cases where a political judgement is wanted. Its an evil star-chamber operation from start to finish. If Assange is tried and convicted in the United States on the flimsy charges so far made public, both the rule of law and the protection of the 1st and 4th Amendments will be dead and buried, along with a free press!
