Support Julian Assange who tried to protect the innocent by outing the perpetrators of war crimes and crimes against humanity

21/07/2012

The Editor-in-Chief of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange is an Australian citizen. However, few people here have any interest in the welfare of that fellow Australian, that appears obvious. This is a premier example of people being led by the nose and told what to believe by storylines supplied by authority figures and media pundits.

Submerged in a culture defined by the educational and informational dictates of our leaders and their interests, many of us cannot recognize when we are being lied to or misled. And, if someone tries to tell us what is happening, they sound so odd, so out of place, that we are made anxious and annoyed. So much so that, in the end, we don’t raise a finger when the messenger is hounded into silence. ~Lawrence Davidson is a history professor at West Chester University in Pennsylvania

Thank God there are fine exemplary people who do care about Julian Assange’s welfare and are able to see though the lies told by US and Australian political leaders who we are repeatedly told to trust.

We, as world citizens, need to support Julian Assange who tried to protect the innocent by outing the perpetrators of war crimes and crimes against humanity, and it is they who should, one day, be made accountable for their crimes.  It must also be remembered  if Assange ends up in an American prison for a long time, in grave danger to his life, and maybe even the death penalty,  we all  have to ask the question ‘Who next?’ and ‘where goes  freedom, human rights and justice?’. ~Mairead Maguire is a Nobel Peace Laureate and a co-founder Peace People.
