Ahead of the start of the hearing, RSF along with @StellaMoris1, attempted to deliver the petition at 10 Downing Street calling for the #UK authorities not to extradite #Assange to the #US. Unfortunately, 10 Downing Street refused to accept it.
As his extradition hearing resumes, we call yet again for Julian Assange to be immediately released, the charges against him dropped, and for him to not be extradited to the #UnitedStates.

We fully believe the case against him is connected to his contributions to public interest reporting, and his prosecution has extremely worrying implications for press freedom and the protection of journalistic sources internationally.
The US and UK governments must drop this politically motivated case before their #PressFreedom records are further tarnished

🔴 #RSF ​is mobilised this morning in support of Julian #Assange, in front of #Woolwich court in London where his trial begins in a few hours. #FreeAssange #live
In retaliation for his role facilitating major revelations in the international media about how the US conducted its wars, #Assange is facing 18 charges in the US, including 17 under the Espionage Act. If extradited to the USA he could be sentenced to up to 175
years in prison.
#RSF urges the UK government to prioritise the principles of freedom of expression and the defence of journalism in its treatment of Assange, and to act in accordance with UK law and the country’s international human rights obligations. #FreeAssange
