SLN Statement on Julian Assange

Socialist Labour Network stands in solidarity with Julian Assange.  We condemn the extradition process being conducted by the UK and USA.  Julian Assange is a journalist who revealed matters of grave importance about US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. Journalists have a duty to hold the powerful to account and to uncover wrongdoing by governments and inform the people. If Julian is extradicted to the USA, every journalist, of any nationality, residing in any country could be vulnerable to the same process.  This is demonstrably wrong. We resolve to continue to campaign for the immediate release of Julian Assange.
