Chris Hedges, Angela Richter and Ben Cohen—contributors to WE ARE MILLIONS—discuss the persecution of Julian Assange and the free press.
“Please join OR Books and the Courage Foundation for an event celebrating the new book WE ARE MILLIONS.
This book is part of the Courage Foundation’s #WeAreMillions, an arts project demonstrating the global support for WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange as he fights extradition to the United States. The Trump Administration wants to prosecute Assange for publishing U.S. government documents in 2010 that exposed war crimes, previously uncounted civilian casualties, and human rights abuses. If the prosecution is successful he will spend the rest of his life in prison.
WE ARE MILLIONS aims to convey the breadth of recognition that Assange’s persecution represents a threat to journalistic freedom and whistle-blowing everywhere.”
