Allies of Julian Assange Demand His Liberty on Press Freedom Day

Supporters of the whistle-blowing website’s founder highlighted the hypocrisy of US, British and European Union leaders’ pious words on World Press Freedom Day, when they have contributed to Julian Assange’s ongoing imprisonment.

Supporters of jailed Wikileaks founder Julian Assange have demanded his liberty on World Press Freedom Day.

His allies took to Twitter on Monday to demand his release from the Belmarsh high-security prison in London, where he is still fighting extradition to the US on espionage and computer fraud charges.

A protest was held in Assange’s homeland Australia outside the Sidney headquarters of Channel 7 news.
