Please help us publicize this forum, that includes the screening of a film
about Julian Assange, days before his final hearing.


‘The War on Journalism: The Case of Julian Assange’ is the stuff Hollywood
movies are made of – 'democratic' states colluding to demonize, spy on, and
imprison a journalist not because he committed any crimes but because he
exposed the crimes of state officials and agencies. In an age where
journalists are under attack globally for doing their jobs, Julian Assange
is facing a 175-year sentence for publishing factual documents about US war
crimes, if extradited to the United States.

Join us Monday, October 25 from 2pm to 4pm at First Church in Cambridge, 11
Garden Street, Cambridge, for the screening of award-winning journalist and
filmmaker Juan Passarelli’s 2020 film ‘The War on Journalism’

Long-time WikiLeaks’ collaborator, Passarelli writes, “There is a war on
journalism, and Julian Assange is at the center of that war. If this
precedent is set, then what happens to Assange can happen to any

‘The War on WikiLeaks’

Journalist and managing editor of Shadowproof Kevin Gosztola
<https://shadowproof.com/author/kgosztola/>, and Boston author, teacher and
activist, Victor Wallis <https://www.victorwallis.com/>, join Passarelli to
discuss recent revelations of the vengeful CIA’s plot to kidnap, rendition,
and assassinate Assange, engaging in illegal means to bypass the rule of
law in order to make an example of Julian Assange, intimidate journalists
and suppress press freedoms. Assange’s final extradition hearing is October
27 & 28.

Julian’s life and the future of press freedom rest in the balance in this
case. Please come with an appetite to learn about the press freedom case of
the century and what you can do to help save Julian Assange.

This event will be live-streamed, and a Q&A will follow the discussion.
