Ben Cohen, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s and Jodie Evans, co- founder of @codepink, will risk arrest by burning a large scale replica of the Bill of Rights in protest against The Department of Justice’s prosecution of Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange.https://t.co/Xbjk76IJFN— Assange Defense (@DefenseAssange) July 6, 2023
@codepinkalert #FREEASSANGE! ✌️ Today, our co-founder Jodie Evans and Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Ben Cohen were both arrested at the Department of Justice while protesting the US government’s prosecution of Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange. Assange has been indicted on 18 charges for the publication of the Afghan War Diary and the Iraq War Logs, which uncovered war crimes, torture, and civilian deaths perpetrated by the US government. He has been held in solitary confinement for years, facing psychological torture as well as intense surveillance. This month, UK High Court Judge Jonathan Swift rejected Assange’s most recent appeal, pushing him ‘dangerously close’ to extradition. If extradited, he will face up to 175 years in prison. Members of Congress, world leaders, as well as major publishers, have urged the Department of Justice to drop the charges against Julian Assange due to the threat it poses to the First Amendment and press freedom. Previously, the Obama administration declined to indict Assange because it would risk criminalizing basic journalistic activities that every mainstream media outlet engages in on a regular basis. The Australian government, where Assange is a citizen, is currently working through diplomatic channels to end Assange’s incarceration, while his legal team continues the appeal process. In the meantime, we’ll continue fighting in the streets for his freedom — peace depends on it. #peace #antiwar #activism #war #whistleblower #wikileaks #assange #iraq #politics #dc #departmentofjustice #protest #freepress #freespeech ♬ original sound - CODEPINK
