Prosecutors Threw the Book at Julian Assange. Here's How That Could Backfire

https://time.com/5607364/julian-assange-extradition-espionage-act/#

The Justice Department argues Assange is not a journalist. Journalism advocates say that makes the case even more dangerous, because the Espionage Act doesn’t differentiate between reporters and everyone else. That in turn means a successful prosecution of Assange will set the precedent for prosecuting journalists as spies down the road.

Julian Assange's full five-day extradition hearing will be in February 2020.

A British court on Friday set February 2020 as the date for the full extradition hearing on whether Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, should be sent to the United States to face a slew of charges, including several under the Espionage Act.

… la tentative d'emprisonnement en vertu de la loi sur l'espionnage est un geste profondément inquiétant qui devrait alerter tous les journalistes. Vous pouvez ne pas apprécier Julian Assange mais sachez que vous serez le suivant.

US efforts to jail #Assange for espionage are a grave threat to a free media

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/may/26/prosecuting-julian-assange-for-espionage-poses-danger-freedom-of-press

...the attempt to lock him up under the Espionage Act is a deeply troubling move that should serve as a wake-up call to all journalists. You may not like Assange, but you’re next.

Think of Julian #Assange, of what you know of his life, his personality, what he has been accused of...

Now ask yourself if he should spend his life in a US prison for exposing war crimes, lies and the cold machinery of imperialism?

After #Assange, #Ecuador’s #LeninMoreno escalates persecution of critics & perceived foes. In one especially egregious case, @olabini@twitter.com is being prosecuted largely on the basis of his political sympathies. @doctorow@twitter.com #FreeOlaBini #FreeAssange https://thegrayzone.com/2019/05/12/lenin-moreno-persecution-ola-bini/ @DenisRogatyuk@twitter.com

50 weeks of jail for #Assange. 1 year for "skipping bail" in the UK, while being arbitrarily detained for 7 years.... That should leave time for the US to further their persecution and extradition attempts .

If we let him be extradited to the US, it's potentially any journalist, any activist, any troublemaker that could follow...

#FreeAssange #FreeChelsea #FreeOlaBini
Donc, c'est confirmé. Voici la preuve que les US veulent #Assange pour "obtention et dissémation d'informations confidentielles" (journalisme, quoi), dans le cadre de l'"Espionnage Act" de 1917 (pour lequel les sanctions vont jusqu'à la peine de mort...).

Même si vous n'aimez pas le type, s'il n'est pas parfait, si vous pensez qu'il a pu dire ou faire des conneries, il est tout de même moment de le soutenir.

#WikiLeaks: The US is indeed investigating #Assange for publishing secret information, DOJ letter suggests

The United States is officially charging Julian Assange for hacking, a crime seemingly perfect for extradition. However, the US Attorney’s Office is also investigating him for „obtaining and disseminating secret information“, punishable by death. That is what the Department of Justice wrote in a letter we now publish.

First, They came for Assange…

"Throwing Assange in prison aims to discourage anyone from following his inspiration to publish without compromise what exposes the crimes and lies of the powerful."

The Chaos Computer Club demands

* the immediate release of Chelsea Manning
* the immediate release of Ola Bini
* an immediate stop of any plans to extradite Julian #Assange to the U.S., where he would not face fair trial

We call for citizens, journalists and European governments to stand in solidarity.
