An online screening of “THE WAR ON JOURNALISM” with live Q&A with the director of the film, Juan Passarelli, Matt Kennard, investigative journalist, and Emmy Butlin of the Committee to Defend Julian Assange. There is a war on journalism – Julian Assange is at the centre of that war. If this precedent is set then what happens to Assange can happen to any journalist.
“The Indictment of Julian Assange… is a threat to the press and the American People.” – Glenn Greenwald Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist
“What Julian Assange is being targeted for is the same or similar as many journalists have done…it’s surprising to me that more people can’t see that this case has worrying implications for all journalists” – Alan Rusbridger former editor-in-chief of The Guardian
“Assange is charged with asking for information, with receiving information, and with publishing information. And I don’t mind saying that those are exactly the things that I do.” – Barton Gellman Pulitzer Prize and Emmy Award-winning journalist
A special event arranged by The Campaign for the Defence of Julian Assange in collaboration with The London Socialist Film Co-op.
