Do you know why they use the term “cyber terrorist” in regards to Julian Assange? The NDAA of 2012 allows for indefinite detainment of any individual who is considered a possible terrorist. So defining Mr. Assange as a terrorist would give them the right to detain him, without trial by jury, indefinitely. By allowing the extradition of Julian, we are allowing and accepting a violation of human rights. This act in and of itself is unconstitutional according to the 6th amendment which states:
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
Once we begin defining a publisher or publication an act of terrorism, the 1st amendment will surely be no longer. We can not allow this to happen. This is why I have written a petition to the White House and President Trump to end all allegations and charges against Julian Assange and wikileaks which is included in the link below. If you could please sign and verify your signature via email as soon as possible.
If we allow Julian or any Wikileaks staff to be arrested for publishing whistle blower documents, we immediately deny our own right to free speech and free press. We also would support the government not being transparent and keeping secrets from us. Do we want a government who keeps corrupt information undisclosed? Publishing the truth seems to be illegal according to our CIA and FBI unless it promotes their philosophies. It is the same with our Congress.
Under the first amendment, the press as well as individuals rights to free speech and free press are guaranteed, as seen below:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
In no way shape or form should a publisher, editor, or journalist be charged for publishing material given to it. Sign the petition and help #FreeAssange
