Video: UN Special Rapporteur calls for Julian Assange to be freed

The United Nations special rapporteur on torture is warning that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is suffering from the effects of “psychological torture” due to his ongoing detention and threats of possible extradition to the United States. The U.N. expert, Nils Melzer, also warned that Assange would likely face a “politicized show trial” if he were to be extradited to the United States.

    Free Julian Assange! Protect whistle-blowers, globally. Unless you do that, then a lot of unjust acts will continue to occur in our names by governments that were elected, globally. We all have the right to know, because what government do, are also in our names.
