WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is facing up to 175 years in prison for publishing truthful information about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The United States has hit Assange with an unprecedented Espionage Act indictment and asked that he be extradited from London.

Extraditing Assange to the United States would have disastrous consequences for the freedom of the press and our democracy. Countless journalists, legal scholars, and human rights groups have condemned the politically motivated U.S. efforts to prosecute Assange. If this case goes forward, it would create a precedent that would criminalize the “lifeblood of investigative journalism” and radically change our democracy.

Under the campaign 1′ 4ASSANGE we publish short testimonies or declarations of people that are well known either across countries and continents or in their communities. We start with the 1′ of Yanis Varoufakis, the greek ex minister of Finance and founder of the European political movement, DiEM25. Watch the video and spread the message.
