Article 19

British Human Rights Organization, Protecting Freedom to Speak and Freedom to Know
“If Julian Assange is extradited, it would be the first time that the Espionage Act has been used in the United States to prosecute a journalist for publishing information that is both truthful and in the public interest, redefining protection of journalism in the US.  This would set a dangerous precedent for media freedom and put editors and journalists in the US and beyond at risk, by an Administration that has been openly hostile to a free press.”
