Millions around the world are with Assange

Chris Hedges, Angela Richter and Ben Cohen—contributors to WE ARE MILLIONS—discuss the persecution of Julian Assange and the free press.

Please join OR Books, the Courage Foundation, and DiEM25 for an event celebrating the new book WE ARE MILLIONS.

This book is part of the Courage Foundation’s #WeAreMillions, an arts project demonstrating the global support for WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange as he fights extradition to the United States. The Trump Administration wants to prosecute Assange for publishing U.S. government documents in 2010 that exposed war crimes, previously uncounted civilian casualties, and human rights abuses. If the prosecution is successful he will spend the rest of his life in prison, and journalists around the world will be at risk.

WE ARE MILLIONS aims to convey the breadth of recognition that Assange’s persecution represents a threat to journalistic freedom and whistle-blowing everywhere.

Date and Time: Thursday, December 10th at 12pm EST / 5pm GMT
