MPs and Reuter’s former bureau chief in Baghdad have again called for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to be released, reports Carrie-Ann Smith.

Birmingham, Plymouth, and Newcastle trades and labour councils have recently voted overwhelmingly to join the campaign to halt the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States, writes Kerry Smith.

Former United States soldier and whistleblower Chelsea Manning was freed from prison on March 12, after having served nearly 10 months for refusing to testify before a grand jury set up to investigate WikiLeaks, writes Kerry Smith.

Where would we be today without the relentless campaign against Julian Assange by mainstream media and unscrupulous journalists, asks Daniel Safi.

In his latest column, Barry Sheppard explores the history of the US Espionage Act, from World War 1 to the war on the public's right to know.

We have a right to know what the government is doing in our name and we also need to demand the repeal of the anti-terror laws that criminalise journalists and whistleblowers, writes Pip Hinman.

“The Department of Justice just declared war —” not on Wikileaks, but on journalism itself. This is no longer about Julian Assange: This case will decide the future of media,” tweeted former National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden on May 23.

The Council for Peace with Justice University of Sydney is urging support for journalist and publisher Julian Assange.

The arrest of Julian Assange is an explicit warning towards journalists. What happened to the founder and editor of WikiLeaks can happen to you on a newspaper, you in a TV studio, you on radio, you running a podcast, writes John Pilger.

The persecution of Julian Assange must end. Or it will end in tragedy.

The Australian government and prime minister Malcolm Turnbull have an historic opportunity to decide which it will be.

They can remain silent, for which history will be unforgiving. Or they can act in the interests of justice and humanity and bring this remarkable Australian citizen home.
