Harvard Square, Cambridge, Ma Stand-Out-Free Heroic Russian Election Interference Whistle-Blower Reality Leigh Winner-5 PM - 6 PM Wednesday January 17, 2017
We Will Not Leave Our Sister Behind-Don’t Prosecute The Truth
Winner, a recent Air Force veteran, has been charged under the Espionage Act, a 100-year-old statute originally designed for spies and saboteurs aiding foreign governments in time of war, for allegedly giving a document vital to the public’s understanding of potential Russian interference in U.S. election systems to a news organization. She faces up ten years and a $250, 000 fine. She is now scheduled for trial in Augusta, Georgia in the late spring/early summer of 2018.
The charge against Winner is grossly disproportionate to her alleged offense, and is designed to create a chilling effect on investigative journalism by dissuading sources from sharing information that is critical to the public interest. We are dedicated to raising public awareness of Winner’s case especially since the federal magistrate judge down in Augusta denied her bail-again in October (which is being appealed)- and in light of the U.S. government’s persistent abuse of the Espionage Act to silence its critics and stifle journalism.
