We Stand with the Founder and Editor-in Chief of WikiLeaks

Julian Assange and the WikiLeaks Team:

Julian Assange is a hero, he has sacrificed his personal comfort and safety to bring us the truth.

Thanks to WikiLeaks, we know that powerful institutions, governments, corporations, have been abusing their power and lying to the public.

WikiLeaks invite us to read the emails, watch the footage, and decide for ourselves, for WikiLeaks is paramount, accuracy, getting the facts straight, presenting the truth unvarnished to the people, is everything in the brave new media world, in an era of lies, deceit, cynicism and war.

WikiLeaks has done us an invaluable service by shining a light into the dark corners where corruption and wrongdoing fester.

WikiLeaks revelations are inspiring countless people to mobilize against corruption and wrongdoing at the high levels, and for that, Julian Assange is our hero, our inspiration.

This year has been seeing journalists attack WikiLeaks for doing what journalists are supposed to do: reveal the facts and the truth to the public.

Mainstream media reports highlight unfunded allegations against Julian Assange, most people have never heard from the mainstream media that an official United Nations has declared this case against Julian Assange to be unfounded.

The United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention has stated, that Julian Assange has been unlawfully detained and must be released immediately.

It shows how the UK government and the Swedish government are going backward and how much these governments have diverted from the rule of law and values in our supposed western democracy.

A working democracy is based on transparency, genuine and factual information. This is no possible when crucial and many times unlawful government policies remain hidden from the public.

Whistleblowing is essential for bringing such policies into the light: exposing key information related to human rights violations, corporate abuses, the environment, civil liberties and war.

Persecution of whistleblowers and investigative journalists is not legitimate and must be opposed by the public.

TODAY 4TH OCTOBER 2016. 10 YEARS OF WIKILEAKS BLOWING THE WHISTLE ON STATE SPYING, WAR CRIMES AND PUBLIC DECEPTION. HEROES OF THE 21ST CENTURY!
