As the world awaits the outcome of the United States' appeal to extradite Julian Assange from Britain, the WikiLeaks founder's courage is beyond doubt, writes John Pilger.

The United States prosecution of Julian Assange is about to enter the next phase in what can only be described as torture via procedure, reports Binoy Kampmark.

If there was any reason to halt a farcical train of legal proceedings, the case against Julian Assange would have to be the standard bearing example, argues Binoy Kampmark.

For the "crime" of truth-telling, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is being relentless pursued by the United States government, determined to secure his extradition at any cost, writes John Pilger.

From Labor Prime Minister Julia Gillard to Coalition PM Scott Morrison, Australian leaders have tried to appear in a chorus of extras, parroting that Assange had broken the law, writes Stuart Rees.

The US Department of Justice’s claim that the Wikileaks founder directed a complex hacking operation has exploded. Sam Wainwright argues we must continue to demand justice for Assange.

World Press Freedom Day on May 3 was marked in many places, including outside the ABC Centre and Channel 7 studios where campaigners for Julian Assange's release gathered. Stephen Langford reports.

Hundreds of people joined a rally on Parliament Lawns in Hobart to call for whistleblower Julian Assange to be freed and support public interest journalism, reports Tristan Sykes.

John Shipton has started an eight-city speaking tour in defence of his son Julian Assange who is still languishing in Belmarsh Prison, reports Kerry Smith.

Julian Assange embarrassed the United States by revealing activities recorded by Americans themselves and the lawlessness of the US military that continues every day, all round the world, writes Alison Broinowski.

That Julian Assange cannot be extradited is welcome, but the ruling comes after the charade in which British authorities held him in a top security prison and made his defence as difficult as possible, argues Stuart Rees.

John Shipton, the father of jailed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, has called on the federal government to follow its own rules, reports Jim McIlroy.
