acTVism Statement:  “Stand with Assange and Protect Press Freedom”

Today on the 11th of April 2019 Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was arrested in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.  From this day onwards we can expect our press freedoms to deteriorate even further as a precedent has been set for journalists and publishers that expose the crimes and corruption of governments and powerful actors. Any Media outlet or journalist who publishes classified information can now be tried as a criminal, and to name a few examples, this could potentially include The New York Times that published the Pentagon-Papers uncovered by Whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg or The Guardian that published the NSA-Snowden-leaks. The fine line that existed between whistleblowers and publishers was officially eliminated today in the name of national security.
