Julian Assange's safety is in serious jeopardy. He is now threatened with imminent arrest and extradition from the United Kingdom to the United States where he faces life in prison. He and his campaign team urgently need your help. Elements in the US government are aggressively pressuring Ecuador to withdraw his asylum status - the time for action is now!

Since 2010 the US government has pursued a secret Grand Jury investigation into WikiLeaks and the US government has already charged Assange in a sealed indictment. These charges are an attack on freedom of speech and the right to publish.  If Assange is to be persecuted for publishing truthful information, then other news organizations and even individuals could be next. 

Publishing is not a crime – it is a fundamental constitutional right. The bringing of criminal charges against Julian Assange for publishing is an extremely dangerous path for a democracy to take.

The CIA has openly said that it is working to "take down" WikiLeaks following its release of thousands of files on the CIA – the largest leak of CIA documents in history. In April 2017, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that arresting Assange was a priority while then CIA Director Mike Pompeo said: "Assange has no First Amendment rights."

The US government will use all its resources to force Assange’s extradition from the United Kingdom and bring him into US custody. By contrast, WikiLeaks is solely funded by supporters and relies on personal donations to promote its journalism, which has a 100% record of accuracy.

Human Rights organizations are completely opposed to Assange’s extradition while the United Nations has repeatedly called for his safe passage to another country.

Julian Assange needs your help to campaign against extradition: please  donate to the WikiLeaks Defense fund today. Please also share this post  widely and encourage others to donate.

Your contributions go solely to the campaign to support WikiLeaks public defense. The Fund is fully audited by the Courage Foundation and is the only official fund endorsed by WikiLeaks. Monies raised will be used for the public, media and political campaign, not legal costs.
