The context of what has been done to Julian Assange explained by Tulsi Gabbard, Noam Chomsky, Diane Abbot and featuring the opinions of others. Assange’s Arrest is another threat to freedom of the press. “The arrest of Julian Assange is meant to send a message to all Americans and journalists: be quiet, behave, toe the line. Or you will pay the price.” - Tulsi Gabbard https://twitter.com/TulsiGabbard/stat...

We must work to #FreeAssange #NoExtradition #FreeChelsea
Free Julian Assange

“In this country we have protections for whistle-blowers, those who take personal risk to disclose wrongdoing in the public interest. Julian Assange is not being pursued to protect US national security. He is being pursued because he has exposed wrongdoing by US administrations” - Diane Abbot https://twitter.com/HackneyAbbott/sta...

The threat to press freedoms posed by Julian Assange's arrest simply cannot be overstated https://twitter.com/Truthdig/status/1...

Arresting Julian Assange for publishing is an attack on fundamental press freedom that democracy depends on. Like Chelsea Manning, US empire wants to imprison him for the "crime" of revealing what our government is doing. All who support democracy must resist! Dr. Jill Stein 🌻 https://twitter.com/DrJillStein/statu...

The continued imprisonment of @xychelsea is an utter disgrace. The arrest of Julian Assange represents an extremely dangerous crossing of the rubicon. This is an assault on journalism and a free press. All journalists should stand in fierce opposition. Jeremy Scahill https://twitter.com/jeremyscahill/sta...

Julian Assange is a journalist and publisher persecuted by the US government for publishing information in the public interest. He is a citizen of Australia and Ecuador. His arrest today in UK should be denounced by media, journalists and all who believe in a free press. - Eva Golinger https://twitter.com/evagolinger/statu...

.@TulsiGabbard says the Julian Assange prosecution sets a precedent where the US government can designate a journalist or publisher as a hostile foreign intelligence operation “simply because they don’t like what they publish or the things they’re saying.” https://twitter.com/MaxBlumenthal/sta...

This is really horrifying and a sad day for press freedom. Shame to everyone who celebrated this injustice. Assange’s crime is doing journalism that exposed US empire & his extradition marks a dark precedent that affects us all #FreeAssange - Abby Martin https://twitter.com/AbbyMartin/status...

We’ve dreaded this day for 7 years.

Assange has done more for journalism over the last decade plus than ALL major networks & newspapers combined. Any reporter who doesn’t kneel before the empire should be outraged by & terrified of the precedent this sets. Viva la información! - Anya Parampil https://twitter.com/anyaparampil/stat...

Mr. President, do you still love WikiLeaks?
PRESIDENT TRUMP:  I know nothing about WikiLeaks.  It’s not my thing.  And I know there is something having to do with Julian Assange.  I’ve been seeing what’s happened with Assange.  And that will be a determination, I would imagine, mostly by the Attorney General, who’s doing an excellent job.
So he’ll be making a determination.  I know nothing really about him.  It’s not my — it’s not my deal in life.
Q    What would you like to see happen?  What is it that your Attorney General —
PRESIDENT TRUMP:  I don’t really have any opinion.  I know the Attorney General will be involved in that and he’ll make a decision, okay?
