Julian Assange 52

Amnesty International implores the Australian government to call on the US to drop charges against Assange and stop attempts to extradite him

In commemoration of Julian Assange's 52nd birthday, Amnesty International released a statement calling on the Australian government to take all necessary measures to ensure the WikiLeaks founder's safe release.

"Monday 3rd of July will mark Julian Assange’s 52nd birthday. This will be his 13th birthday without his freedom … [Australian] Prime Minister [Anthony] Albanese and the Australian government must do everything in their power to protect Assange, an Australian citizen, from ongoing and threatened human rights violations, and take all necessary measures to ensure his safety.

The Prime Minister must ensure that this is the last birthday Julian Assange must spend in fear, locked away from his loved ones," Amnesty International said in a statement.

Furthermore, the human rights organization implored the Australian government to call on the US to drop charges against Assange and stop attempts to extradite him.

Julian Assange; a name that emerged in the media and international arena after WikiLeaks, a website he founded in 2010, revealed important and dangerous information and facts about what the United States government and other governments have wrought in the Middle East - crimes they have not been held accountable for yet.

As a result, Assange faced pressure and persecution, until he was arrested by the British police in 2019 after seeking refuge for seven years in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

Since then, Assange has been held in the high-security Belmarsh Prison near London, facing a possible prison sentence of 175 years after the UK Supreme Court approved his extradition to the United States in December 2021.

Recognizing the importance of Assange's revelations, and in support of press freedom wherever it may be, and as a tribute to his struggle for truth, Al Mayadeen produced a three-part docuseries titled "A Man Vs. An Empire."

Assange, who provided the world with important and dangerous information, paid a steep price for his revelations, but as a result, he established a new and pioneering school in investigative journalism around the world.

The docuseries delves into the details of Assange's long journey, documenting the inception of the WikiLeaks website and what Assange went through. It also explores what he revealed during the early years of his work, and the pressures and persecution he faced as a result of his actions.

This ultimately led him to seek refuge in an embassy before his arrest and his difficult life in prison, with the looming threat of extradition to the United States at any moment.

Each episode of this series showcases a phase of Assange's life and the story of WikiLeaks.

France rejects Julian Assange

In March, the Robin des Lois association called on France to "use all means" to allow Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to apply for political asylum

French media reported on Tuesday, citing the court ruling, that France has denied asylum to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is currently serving a prison sentence in the UK.

According to AFP, the Creteil court ruled that the conditions restricting Assange's freedom do not allow an exception to the French law requiring asylum seekers to be physically present in France or the EU.

In March, the Robin des Lois association called on France to "use all means" to allow Assange to apply for political asylum, despite the rule that asylum seekers must be physically present in France or the EU.

The association said it would not appeal the court's decision; however, it urged the French Justice Minister and Assange's former lawyer to "take up the matter."

In July, lawmakers from France's left-wing political alliance, the New Ecologic and Social People's Union (Nupes), proposed a resolution calling on the French government to grant political asylum to Assange.

Julian Assange has been detained at London's Belmarsh Prison for the past four years, fighting extradition to the US on espionage charges for leaking classified US military documents that revealed war crimes committed by the US in Afghanistan and Iraq.

He has been in poor health and could face up to 175 years in prison if convicted in the US.

Censorship is Out of Control

During the Portugal Web Summit on Thursday, lawyer and human rights activist Stella Assange, the wife of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, asserted that the European Union (EU) imposes Internet regulations under the pretext of controlling misinformation

"The EU loves this new era of misinformation because it allows them to regulate the Internet extensively," she said, adding that the institutes and programs created to combat misinformation are not genuinely effective.

"If there were any truth to their eagerness to stop false information, then they would be the biggest supporters of WikiLeaks and would promote the WikiLeaks model as the best possible journalism. But usually, those involved in all of this are the staunchest critics of WikiLeaks because they see it as a real threat," Stella pointed out.

In addition to emphasizing that technology companies do not want to be regulated, the lawyer recalled that misinformation problems will not be resolved because there are "revolving doors" between major corporations and government intelligence agencies.

To truly combat disinformation in the contemporary world, "you need people from human rights and journalism backgrounds," she said, warning about the existence of "an entire censorship industry" built through technology of which most people are unaware. Therefore, "censorship is out of control," Stella stressed.

The activist also highlighted the significant imbalance emerging due to intermediaries regulating information that reaches people because they deem certain data "dangerous."

"Obviously, technology plays a key role, and we need many leaders in this area to push it back," Stella said, recalling that Julian Assange created an innovation that democratized information and ended the monopoly held by corporate media.

"Who in their right mind would publish Chelsea Manning's leaks today, knowing what they've done to Julian?" Stella asked, referring to the founder of WikiLeaks, whom the United States accused of espionage and computer intrusion for exposing war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Between 2012 and 2019, Assange was sheltered in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Subsequently, when Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno (2017-2021) revoked his political asylum, Assange was arrested and sent to the high-security prison in Belmarsh, where he is judicially fighting to prevent his extradition to the United States.

The Lisbon Web Summit is an annual event that, in its 2023 edition, brought together about 2,600 emerging companies and 70,000 people from 160 countries.
