The empire vs. journalism and free speech

As Julan Assange continues to languish in the maximum security Belmarsh Prison in London, a movement of journalists and supporters of free speech continues to build. The mainstream media did not report it, but a few days ago “Legendary musician Roger Waters sang “Wish You Were Here” in honor of Julian Assange, at a public concert outside the British Home Office. He was joined by journalist John Pilger and UK MP Chris Williamson in calling for the imprisoned Wikileaks publisher to be freed, and not extradited to the US.” You can read about it in The Grayzone.

In the video below, journalist John Pilger delivers a warning from Julian, “Speak up now,” Pilger said, or face “the silence of a new kind of tyranny.”
