Free Julian Assange


One of the most important cases of the persecution of a journalist on entirely political grounds in the world today is that of Julian Assange.  The Don’t Extradite Assange campaign has been central to efforts to highlight the outrageous hypocrisy of the western governments that are trying to permanently silence the voice of the founder of Wikileaks and by extension, that of real journalists everywhere.  Collected here are some of the pieces I’ve published in Counterpunch, followed by video and audio material, mostly songs related to Julian Assange and Wikileaks.
