Wikileaks founder and journalist Julian Assange could soon be extradited to the United States for alleged crimes he committed publishing classified information. The UK’s High Court rejected a January decision refusing extradition of Assange after the US filed a request to have him sent stateside.
Following the final High Court hearing to decide whether or not Julian Assange is to be extradited to the United States — for the ‘crime’ of revealing a landscape of government crimes and lies — John Pilger looks back on the decade Assange has been fighting for his freedom, and the implications for independent journalists and the very notion of justice.
