Judgement Day for Julian Assange is January 4. Here’s How You Can Help Us Cover It.

Consortium News and CN Live! have big plans to continue covering the Media Trial of the Century.

Consortium News this year has been celebrating its 25th Anniversary as the oldest independent news site on the Web. Building on the legacy of its founder Robert Parry, Consortium News has continued its non-partisan approach to news in an age of frenzied and deep-seated partisanship.

Among the most crucial stories we’ve covered, from the Middle East, to war crimes, inequality and police violence, has been the Julian Assange case. In the absence of corporate media coverage of the media trial of the century, we have provided daily reports direct from a video link to the courtroom, and nightly video wrap ups and in-depth weekend shows on CN Live!.

Jan. 4 is judgement day for Assange. But appeals are likely after that. Please help us cover the Assange story  in print and video, as well as the many pressing issues of our day by making a completely tax-deductible donation as the 2020 tax year comes to an end.

Go to our home page at consortiumnews.com and click on the big red button that says Donate. We’ve achieved a lot in 25 years but we couldn’t do it without the generosity of our readers and viewers. So please support us as we enter the second quarter century of Consortium News.

    Dear UK:
    How strange a nation you are when Truth Telling is seems as a crime. How strange you are when a judge grants the accused —–nothing –well except for punishment —-while NO crime has been committed. Julian Assange has told the Truth, the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth. What a sad nation you are and what a sad sense of Justice you have—no—that is incorrect—-there is no Justice with that judge, though apparently her husband could benefit from some jail time. What is it about truth tellers that throughout history—truth tellers have been judged by the unworthy. Socrates in Greece, Cicero in Rome— and Julian by a corrupt court.-

    It has become accepted that we are supposed to think there is nothing we can do about corruption and crimes perpertrated by politicians and their families. All this while truth tellers and whistle blowers are jailed if it reveals the above crimes. WHY? Enough is enough. We must organize the end of such governments that procecute heroes such as Julian Assange.

    No one should be unjustly imprisoned for telling the truth. All my prayers are with Julian Assange .

    I feel sorry for Julian Assange, he has been hiding at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and had no way of getting out. Too bad no one could sneak him out. He was a whistle blowing journalist and exposed a lot of bad things going on. Since 9/11/2001, the USA, UK and many other nations have become less free. Emanuel Macron calls what the teacher did by offending Muslims Free Speech but what the UK is doing is violating Freedom of The Press.
