Defend Assange – defend freedom of speech!

In Serbia, we are very familiar with the persecution that journalists face if they expose the wrongdoings of the powerful: misuse of public goods, corruption, criminal privatizations, and war crimes.
But this attack stretches well beyond the Balkans. Julian Assange, one of the founders and a member of DiEM25 Advisory Panel, has become a symbol of the free flow of information, as well as of systematic persecution of those who fight for it.
UN Special Rapporteur on Torture and other Cruel, Inhumane or Degrading Treatment or Punishment has warned that the “collective persecution” of Julian Assange must end. Assange exposed war crimes, and for that he faces a hearing on June 14 about his extradition to the US, where he might face up to 175 years in prison! If we allow the extradition of Julian Assange, we will extradite our own freedom of speech with him.
So join us on Wednesday, June 12 at 6PM on Đlato Đoke Vještice to fight for free speech. Unfreedom of one of us is unfreedom of all!
