Rally at 1 pm – 3 pm, Saturday, April 13, in front of the British Consulate (625 N. Michigan Ave.) to demand No Extradition of Julian Assange to Fascist America! Exposing War Crimes is Not a Crime! Free Chelsea Manning!
The arrest of Julian Assange and his indictment by the US is a major attack on journalism, independent media, and whistle blowers. The U.S. is attempting to prosecute – and persecute – a foreign journalist for “aiding and abetting” “espionage” simply for publishing unauthorized disclosures of its own criminal war activities. And all of this is going forward now as part of escalating a fascist program that includes assaults on the media (“fake news”), dissent, science and truth itself.
NOW is the time to say publicly NO! We refuse to accept a fascist America, in the name of humanity and the planet!
