Join author and speaker, Miko Peled, for a webinar discussion with a special guest panel featuring Roger Waters, John Pilger, and Ray McGovern.
Recently, U.S. prosecutors indicted WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange on seventeen espionage charges stemming from the disclosure of atrocities committed by the U.S. armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. With global consequences directly affecting the freedom of the press, Assange stands to be extradited from the UK to trial to the U.S. under the Espionage Act. In this upcoming online event, author and activist, Miko Peled, speaks with three individuals who have a longstanding history of bravely advocating for Assange’s release and freedom: Roger Waters, John Pilger, and Ray McGovern.
Miko and the panel will tackle the following topics:
Julian Assange and WikiLeaks’ contributions to journalism
The campaign to prosecute Assange
Assange’s eviction from the embassy and his corresponding treatment by the British authorities
The likelihood of Assange’s extradition to the U.S. to face espionage charges
The lack of journalistic support and solidarity for Assange
