The case of Julian Assange refuses to leave the spotlight. Now, it looks like the International Federation of Journalists, consisting of over 600,000 journalists from all over the world, is calling for the immediate release of Julian Assange.

Calling for Julian Assange’s freedom

Recently, it was reported that Paul Gosar, a Republican Party representative from Arizona, has introduced a resolution in the U.S. government. The resolution asserts that the First Amendment safeguards “regular journalistic activities” and calls on the government to halt its prosecution of Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks. Assange has been accused of publishing classified documents from the U.S. military.

The bipartisan resolution introduced Wednesday was co-sponsored by Reps. James McGovern, D-Mass.; Thomas Massie, R-Ky.; Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga.; Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla.; Eric Burlison, R-Mo.; Jeff Duncan, R-S.C.; Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Clay Higgins, R-La.

“Whereas regular journalistic activities, including the obtainment and publication of information, are protected under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States,” the resolution reads.

Now, take a look at the post that is drawing attention on X regarding Assange’s freedom:

More and more people are addressing the important need to free Julian Assange – he represents not only the freedom of press, but the freedom of truth, of us all.

According to the latest reports, a UN expert recently expressed concern that the possible extradition and imminent prosecution in the United States of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could have serious implications for freedom of expression.

“Gathering, reporting and disseminating information, including national security information when it is in the public interest, is a legitimate exercise of journalism and should not be treated as a crime,” said Irene Khan, the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression.
