Australian considering similar #sanctions laws:
“US uses economic sanctions as a weapon against nations who choose a development path independent of US global domination. It uses sanctions as a tool to destabilize governments that refuse to kow-tow to it.”
Press freedom is at stake, with the arbitrary arrest of Wikileaks founder & owner #JulianAssange We must take action. We can not allow Julian to be prosecuted for telling the truth. The United States committed the #WarCrimes Julian only reported the situation.
So it's "Press Freedom Day"...
"Espionnage" charges against #Assange and WikiLeaks, if maintained, would create the worst precedent ever for press freedom worldwide. Every authoritarian country in the world could follow that example and do the same to censor any journalistic activity in the future..
2 YEARS! For 730 days, Julian #Assange has been rotting in "British Guantanamo", after being forcefully removed from EC embassy, his political asylum illegally revoked.
His crime? Exposing the true nature of the war crimes of the US and the UK, in an undeniable, un-censorable and searchable way.
Massive breaches of the rule-of-law concern us all!
Beyond Assange and WikiLeaks is the fate of free speech, free press, and our collective ability to publish online.
2 ANS que Julian #Assange croupit dans le "Guantanamo britannique", après avoir été expulsé par la force de l'ambassade EC, son asile politique illégalement révoqué.
Son crime ? Avoir exposé la véritable nature des crimes de guerre des US et UK, d'une manière indéniable, non censurable et "cherchable".
Au-delà d'Assange et de WikiLeaks se joue le sort de la liberté d'expression, de la liberté de la presse et de notre capacité collective à publier en ligne.

What kind of society do we want? Whom do we choose to protect & empower? What is courage?
#JulianAssange answered these questions by exposing corruption, war crimes & rogue states’ disdain for the law.
It’s our turn to free him as he completes 2 years in that hell-hole Belmarsh
An AOC spox has denied any role in the police visit to @queeralamode, who said he was accused of threatening a lawmaker for posting video of AOC's comments on Israel-Palestine. Was the incident part of a wider trend of post-1/6 social media policing? https://thegrayzone.com/2021/04/09/anti-war-activist-police-aoc-video/
Anti-war activist @queeralamode said he was visited by California Highway Patrol officers after posting video of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's bumbling comments on Israel-Palestine.
