Justice For Julian! DEMAND Congress Sign Thomas Massie, R-Ky. Letter to Free Assange!
Reps. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., and James McGovern, D-Mass., are circulating a letter to their colleagues in the House of Representatives calling on President Biden to end the prosecution of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who is facing a possible extradition to the U.S. for publishing classified U.S. military documents. We must URGE our Congressional members, both in the House and Senate to SIGN this letter, urging Biden to LIBERATE ASSANGE!
The two congressmen asked fellow House members to join their bipartisan effort to "strongly encourage the Biden administration to withdraw the U.S. extradition request currently pending against Australian publisher Julian Assange and halt all prosecutorial proceedings against him as soon as possible."
The letter, which was first reported by Fox News, appeals to Biden by citing his former boss’s administration. “We believe the Department of Justice acted correctly in 2013, during your vice presidency, when it declined to pursue charges against Mr. Assange for publishing the classified documents because it recognized that the prosecution would set a dangerous precedent,” the letter reads. (The Obama administration had also commuted the sentence of former U.S. Army soldier and whistleblower Chelsea Manning, who had provided the hundreds of thousands of documents — and infamous video of an Apache helicopter strike killing Iraqi civilians and two photographers working for Reuters — to Assange.) There should be no double standard, Biden must pardon Julian Assange, drop all charges and LIBERATE him! The whole of Congress must sign this letter, and any letter in the future, until Julian Assange walks a FREE man!
To accept the persecution of Julian Assange is to accept the idea that all media everywhere must function as propaganda organs of the U.S. government.
Good journalism is allowed to be critical, it's allowed to be inconvenient, it's allowed to be controversial, it's allowed to criticize governments, and no one, especially under the protection of the first amendment, should be imprisoned for exercising their freedom of speech and telling the truth!
I can say confidently, thank you Julian Assange, thank you for opening the eyes of so many. Until Assange is free we must fight for him, and for the freedom of speech of those all around us! All of Congress MUST sign Reps. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., and James McGovern, D-Mass’s Dear Colleague letter and FREE Julian Assange!
The American People demand that the United States government drop all charges against Julian Assange, and let him return to his family, as a FREE man. The United States was built on the principles of free speech, including free press for all mankind, these rights are undeniable and god-given. Congress SIGN this letter, demand that Biden pardon and free Julian Assange, now and in the future, until he is free!
