NYC Free Assange answers the call to action to defend award winning journalist and WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange and our civil liberties. We have two demands: “Free Julian Assange” and “No Extradition.”
Julian Assange, an Australian citizen, is the first publisher ever to be charged under the 1917 Espionage Act and is liable for extradition from the United Kingdom to the United States where he faces 175 years in prison.
His prosecution is a direct attack on freedom of the press and our right to know the truth about crimes and human rights violations committed by the United States in our name. We unequivocally demand “Free Julian Assange” and “No Extradition!”
