Panel discussion, plus video statements from:

and Jennifer Robinson, Julian Assange’s London attorney

Join us for a panel discussion of leading attorneys, human rights defenders and social justice activists as the London trial of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is underway. If Assange is extradited to the United States, he faces the first-ever charges under the Espionage Act of 1917 for the publication of truthful information in the public interest. Speakers will present the critical legal and policy issues involved as well as rebut government efforts to undermine the reputation and credibility of Assange. In these difficult times for civil liberties and democratic rights we demand: Free Julian Assange! Defend Free Speech and the First Amendment!

The U.S. government and its corporate media have created an Orwellian world of lies and half truths regarding the origins of the present war in Ukraine. Obliterated from the record has been the central role of the U.S. in its orchestrated 2014 coup that imposed a fascist-led U.S.-dominated government aimed at seizing control of Ukraine’s resources to advance the wealth and power of the U.S. corporate elite.
