US authorities' political prosecution ploy concerning Julian #Assange is an ethically bankrupt attempt at retribution for his role in exposing the darkest crevices of the US national security state, including the CIA's highly intrusive hacking arsenal. @BorisJohnson @patel4witham
Britain is languishing in a domestic political crisis, and US authorities know this. But will the UK govt forfeit its dignity at the alter of human rights by handing over a public interest journalist to a US criminal justice system blighted by torture? @DefendAssange @wikileaks
A journalist who has already endured aggravated and prolonged punishment-by-process, and grave human rights violations, at the hands of UK and other state actors, and who is very vulnerable, detained in the hospital wing of a max security jail in London? @wikileaks @DefendAssange
Britain's better than that, and so is Europe. Stop the political persecution of a national security journalist whose investigative work, and that of his colleagues, shone a light on US war crimes, dodgy diplomatic dealings and other abuses! #JournalismIsNotACrime @attorneygeneral
Maintaining a UK-US special relationship does not require Britain to tarnish its human rights record for decades by destroying a talented journalist whose work was so pioneering, powerful US actors want to destroy him. #ProtectJulian @attorneygeneral @DefendAssange @wikileaks
.@BorisJohnson, continuing along a path of sacrificing political sovereignty in the case of Julian #Assange will not solidify UK-US relations in the face of a turbulent #Brexit climate. It's not in the national interest. It's weak. It's servitude to US imperialism. @DefendAssange
