Urge Ecuador to Protect WikiLeaks from Persecution by Team Trump

Please let Ecuador’s leaders know that you support their courageous stand in protecting press freedom, as well as their right to grant political asylum and resist United States/United Kingdom intimidation.

To President Lenin Moreno, Ecuador
CC: Foreign Minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa

In 2012, the government of Ecuador bravely stood up for freedom of the press and against threats from the United States and United Kingdom by granting political asylum to WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange. In response to his publishing activities that revealed U.S. war crimes and imperial misconduct, Assange was threatened with prosecution in the United State for espionage, while some U.S. political leaders called for his assassination. With an even more aggressively militaristic regime in power in Washington D.C. today, we encourage you to stand firm and not renege on Mr. Assange’s political asylum status.
