More About This Issue
“Every time we witness an injustice and do not act, we train our character to be passive in its presence and thereby eventually lose all ability to defend ourselves and those we love.”
~ Julian Assange
Scores of press, freedom organizations, news outlets, United Nations representatives, politicians and public figures are speaking out against Julian Assange’s arrest and warning of its implications. The New York Times, the ACLU and The Nation all oppose US government indictment of WikiLeaks for publishing truthful information.
Amnesty International believes that Julian Assange should not be extradited or subjected to any other transfer to the USA, where there are concerns that he would face a real risk of serious human rights violations due to his work with Wikileaks:
- Violation of his right to freedom of expression
- Violation of his right to liberty, arising from any pre-trial detention and/or prison sentence that was imposed on the basis of a prosecution that violated his freedom of expression
- Violation of his right to life, if the death penalty were to be available in any proceedings that he might face in the USA
- Being held in conditions that violate his rights to humane treatment and respect for his dignity and potentially his right not to be subjected to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
So join us on February 24 for this momentous event and stand up for the Right to Free Speech for all global citizens.
