Special to Consortium News 

In the last week before Julian Assange’s extradition hearing, people flocked from around the world to London, to defend the imprisoned journalist and call for his release. CN Live! covered a myriad of events and spoke with a number of participants about the significance of this case, which the UK Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell has referred to as “the Dreyfus case of our age; the way in which a person is being persecuted, for political reasons, for simply exposing the truth about what went on in recent wars.”

    “Julian refused to give up a source in the hope of securing his own freedom.”

    This dedication to journalistic confidentiality is the reason the UK at the behest of the US military AND industrial complex continues its suppression of truth for criminal practices.

    Free Julian now and with him the weapons we need to battle onerous international rapaciousness.
