Rally On Julian’s Birthday To Free Julian Assange & CWA NABET IFJ Journalist Mumia Abu-jamal
Journalist and publisher Julian Assange has been imprisoned in the UK for charges of espionage in the US for publishing WikiLeaks and faces extradition to the US, and this is a threat to all journalists. The San Francisco Labor Council has supported him as well as journalists around the world. Even the New York Times, The Guardian and Washington Post are calling for his freedom since they could also be prosecuted.
The International Federation of Journalists is supporting Assange and also calling for the freedom of journalist Mumia Abu-jamal who was a reporter at Philadelphia public radio and NPR where he provided commentaries. He has also won a Peabody award for his work.
Journalists and defenders of the rights of all journalists here and around the world will be speaking out.
