The future of Julian Assange — and of investigative journalism — is now being decided. If the WikiLeaks founder is extradited to the United States, he will face a sentence of up to 175 years for publishing US war crimes including torture, murder and other human rights abuses.
The lovely Jeannie and David @dmiz1958 ( members of The Committee to Defend Julian Assange) came in today to leave flyers for Hacking Justice.

For his lawyer, Baltasar Garzón, the pioneer of Universal Justice, much more is at stake than the freedom of an independent journalist and publisher. As head of Assange’s legal team, Garzón warns that the growing influence of intelligence services puts freedom of information, our right to know what our governments are doing, and democracy at risk.
With privileged access to Assange and Wikileaks for nine years, “Hacking Justice: Julian Assange” follows the controversial characters united against the world’s most powerful state in a standoff which is not over yet.
Following the film, there will be a Q and A with grassroots activists Emmy Butlin, David Mizrachi, and Joe Brack hosted by Jeannie Farr who are all members of The Committee to Defend Julian Assange
