  1. This is my first time on AcTVism… I know this is about Assange, but I do think he’s been treated unfairly. Freedom of the Press is very important. Assange should be treated fairly. I wonder if he’ll make it out alive. What a travesty his case is being ignored

  2. I think what Snowden did was heroic. I often think about how his is. I wonder if it’s good he didn’t make it to Ecuador considering Covid-19 and so many people lying dead on the street. Leadership changed……and Snowden could have been criminalized……
