  14. “The extradition of an Australian or Italian journalist by the US would just as easily justify the same action by Saudi Arabia and Russia… an extra-territorial extension of US power to punish the world’s scribblers, bloggers and publishers.” #WeAreAllAssange
  16. Assange’s extradition hearing begins in London on February 24th The British courts will decide whether to flagrantly disregard fundamental democratic principles and dispatch him to his American state persecutors where by law he will not be able to present a defense #WeAreAllAssange
  18. Assange has already served a 50-week prison sentence in Britain for jumping bail. A rape investigation launched against him in Sweden has been dropped, so he would likely be freed from prison if extradition is denied. If the extradition is granted journalism dies #WeAreAllAssange
  20. Assange has been charged with 17 counts of espionage for publishing the government’s documents exposing US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan and torture in Guantanamo Bay. Journalism is not espionage. #WeAreAllAssange

  30. “@wikileaks has radically changed the media landscape. By publishing truthful information about the United States, the organization came head-to-head with the Pentagon & the CIA.” Global powers cant fathom an uncontrolled media organization #WeAreAllAssange
  32. “It is important to congratulate WikiLeaks for what they have done. The best kind of journalism is the most difficult kind of journalism… It is an injustice against WikiLeaks… As Martin Luther King said, an injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere.”- @RichardBurgon
  34. “It is a rifle shot to steer clear of a case that would worry the average journalist that they could be prosecuted over stories that make it into The NYT, The Washington Post, and Politico all the time” – Law Professor Ashley Deeks #WeAreAllAssange
  36. UN torture expert says he has been left “genuinely outraged” by the prosecution of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, speakers at an event at London’s Frontline Cub this week warned the case should be considered an “attack on all journalists.” #WeAreAllAssange

  44. Assange is not an American citizen. WikiLeaks, is not a U.S.-based publication. The extradition of Assange would mean that international journalist do not have freedom of speech and it will end journalistic investigations that expose power. #WeAreAllAssange
  46. Assange is being held in the notorious high-security HM Prison Belmarsh. He has spent much of his time in isolation, he’s heavily sedated & has been denied medical treatment. His lawyers say they are routinely denied access to him. #WeAreAllAssange
  48. “He had hard evidence of US war crimes now the country guilty of the war crimes is trying to get a hold of him. For the Australian government to go along with this is unconscionable. The whole thing is mad from start to finish.” – @WilkieMP #WeAreAllAssange
  50. “One of the largest petitions ever tabled in Australia’s parliament—now signed by 280,000 people—was presented in the House of Representatives, calling for freedom for @WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.” Hands off Assange! #WeAreAllAssange #FreeAssange
  52. Spanish security firm UC Global recorded Assange 24/7 & gave this video to the CIA. “That firm was contracted by Ecuador to protect the embassy to protect Assange to protect us from his persecutors.” – Former Ecuadorian diplomat Fidel Narvaez #WeAreAllAssange

  56. The first Right our founding fathers wrote down was freedom of speech, yet today we have become a country that uses its own powerful influences to silence not only American citizens but citizens of other countries as well. Stand up against the extradition of Assange! #WeAreAllAssange
  58. Wikileaks inspired revolutions that toppled governments without firing a single bullet, @Wikileaks did it by spreading information and knowledge which terrified global powers. Now Assange is facing extradition to the US for exposing #US war crimes in #Iraq. #WeAreAllAssange
  60. US fighter pilots shot 30 mm cannons down on civilians & journalist from Apache helicopter in Iraq, and those same soldiers then fired a missile into a van driven by a dad taking his kids to school. Wikileaks exposed these war crimes, that is journalism not espionage #WeAreAllAssange
  62. Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning did not fire those 30 mm cannons and kill civilians and journalist, the United States government did. If you condemn Julian and Chelsea then you condone the war crimes they sacrificed their liberty to expose. #WeAreAllAssange #FreeChelseaManning
  64. Julian Assange exposed the media establishment as frauds and exposed our entire political system for feigning democracy. That is why both sides of the political spectrum want to see Julian burned at the stake, extradited to the US and silenced. We must stand up #WeAreAllAssange
