“Enough Is Enough”: Australian PM Throws Support Behind Movement to Free Julian Assange

By Democracy Now

HAVANA TIMES – A growing number of politicians, including Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, are calling on the United States to drop its case against WikiLeaks founder and Australian citizen Julian Assange, who has been locked up for four years in London’s Belmarsh prison awaiting possible extradition to face espionage and hacking charges for publishing leaked documents about U.S. war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. Among Assange’s supporters is Australian human rights attorney Jen Robinson, who has been a legal adviser to Assange since 2010. She joins us from London, where she calls for the case against Assange to be dropped and warns that continuing his prosecution “threatens free speech around the world.”

  • The powers that be cover up their actions with lies.
    It is a fact that wikileaks shone a light on those lies.
    The powers that be would prefer if their actions were left buried and their lies left in the dark. They prefer that information and that truth are suppressed.
    The powers that be now wish to shoot the messenger.

    Don’t really understand why someone would so slavishly trust and support the powers that be to the extent that they would favor suppression of information and suppression of truth??

    As an aside, one of Cuba’s key problems is the suppression of information and truth.
    If that’s a bad thing in Cuba, it’s a bad thing everywhere else.

  • Democracy Now! has no credibility on this topic.
    Hacking into computers that don’t belong to you is criminal activity that should be prosecuted. It has no connection to “publishing leaked documents”, and it is dishonest of Democracy Now! to say so.
    No, the continued prosecution of him dies not threaten free speech. It threatens Julian Assange.
