About the event
A new activist-led campaign on press freedom launches this month focusing on the case of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
For over a decade, the US government’s unrelenting pursuit of Julian Assange for publishing evidence of war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan has represented a full-scale assault on freedom of expression.
Amnesty is calling on the US to drop its extradition and all charges against Assange. The UK government must also release him from Belmarsh Prison immediately.
Join us for a screening the newly revised cut of “Hacking Justice” plus Q&A on Tuesday 11 October, 6-8.30pm. This event will also be livestreamed from the Human Rights Action Centre.
As head of Julian Assange’s legal team, Baltasar Garzón warns that the growing influence of intelligence services puts freedom of information, our right to know what our governments are doing, and democracy at risk.
With privileged access to Assange and Wikileaks for nine years, “Hacking Justice: Julian Assange” witnesses the struggle for the control of information, the role of the mass media and the difficult balance of individual rights and state security.
