Congress: Drop the charges against Julian Assange!
The Biden administration is continuing the shameful legacy of Trump, Sessions, and Pompeo by seeking the extradition and prosecution of publisher Julian Assange.
Will you speak out and demand that Congress pressure the Biden administration respect the rule of law and our First Amendment by dropping these charges?
Our movement to protect our First Amendment rights is not partisan. Sign our petition now to urge your representatives to join this effort and condemn the attack on our civil liberties.
We can defend the free press and Julian Assange, but we need our representatives to stand up and do the right thing. Sign our petition and let your representative know how crucial it is that the United States drop its charges against Julian!
From: [Your Name]
As your constituent, I am urging you to publicly call on the Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Biden administration to drop the charges against publisher Julian Assange and end their efforts to extradite him to the United States. Newsgathering and publishing are crucial to our free society and protected by the First Amendment.
This case is important to me because the use of the Espionage Act against a journalist threatens the free press that helps make our country so great.
The Trump administration’s attempt to criminalize journalism set a dangerous precedent -- one that Biden and his Justice Department have yet to correct. I ask that you stand up and support the First Amendment and call on the administration to drop the charges against Assange. Please keep our free press free!
