Julian Assange Extradition Ruling
On January 4, 2021, at 10:00am London time, a British magistrates’ judge will rule on whether to extradite WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange from the United Kingdom to the United States. Assange, an Australian citizen who has been in arbitrary detention since 2012 and imprisoned since April 2019, has been indicted in the U.S. for publishing government documents in 2010, in a landmark attack on the First Amendment. The U.S. wants to dictate what can and can’t be published around the world — will the U.K. bow to U.S. pressure and help put an award-winning journalist on trial?

Leading academics, lawyers, fellow journalists and human rights defenders across the globe have condemned the U.S. prosecution. On Jan. 4th at 12pm PDT / 3pm EDT, the Assange Defense Committee and Shadowproof will host an online panel event to respond to the judge’s ruling and provide context for the press freedom issues at stake.

Speakers:

-Noam Chomsky, author & historian
-Marjorie Cohn, former president of National Lawyers Guild
-Daniel Ellsberg, Pentagon Papers whistleblower

Moderator:

-Kevin Gosztola, Shadowproof journalist
