The tide is changing surrounding the prosecution of Julian Assange. But Congress needs to hear from you.
Australian publisher Julian Assange is a political prisoner. After being abducted out of the Ecuadorian embassy, he has languished in Belmarsh prison for nearly four years. In the intervening time, press freedom groups, major newspapers, and civil libertarians have all condemned the US’s unprecedented charges against Assange.
After years of grassroots advocacy, now members of Congress are starting to speak out. But they need to hear your voice.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is currently circulating a sign-on letter calling for Attorney General Merrick Garland to drop the charges against Assange. Other members of Congress can join the letter, but this is an issue that demands courage. They need to hear from you, their constituents.
Write to your members of Congress and ask them to join Rep. Tlaib’s effort. The future of the First Amendment is at stake!
