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,

    ulian’s should be lauded for his excellent journalism because he exposes corrupt governments to inform the citizens, he has never had to retract any thing published. He is a hero BUT as George Orwell wrote in ‘1984’ explaining Authoritarian governments, “In a Time of Universal Deceit — Telling the Truth Is a Revolutionary Act” because corrupt governments crucify to silence those who expose their corruptions.

    Dear PM Boris Johnson this man has been arbitrarily imprisoned courtesy of a judge and Ms May ex PM in Belmarsh no justice

    Ex Home Secretary Javid and wannabe PM Jeremy Hunt all conspired to sign an extradition order on orders from CIA part of US gov to remove him to a secret grand jury under a false indictment

    No charges were ever laid in terms og Sweden

    What man wants to be charged for rape when women consented?

    He woke to find the police had spread in the press a lie

    So a court appearance on that a red alert issued and Assange was left with no choice but to seek Asylum from there he was sold with the assistance of ex foreign minister Alex Duncan who bragged on his twitter about that

    Dear Boris stop the corruption which does that to people

    Next time it could be you or me off to Guantanamo anyone
