Petition to Donald Trump to Free Assange

Please either drop charges and grand jury against Julian Assange or do a preemptive pardon.

Why is this important?

Dear Mr. President,

Julian Assange is in great jeopardy and it appears that you may be the only one who can help him. His asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy is threatened and he is living under intolerable conditions. Yet, if he leaves, he is exposed to arrest and imprisonment in the US. Senior US law enforcement officials have stated that they intend to do anything they can do to imprison him in the US. In recent days heavily armored police vehicles have surrounded the Embassy and the media is reporting that his arrest is imminent. You can prevent this and we urge you to free Assange.

The relentless attacks on Assange and Wikileaks threatens the future of a free press that is the bulwark of democracy.

Assange has been held without charge inside the Ecuadorian Embassy for more than 2700 days and he has been gagged since March 28th. All the while, not a shred of evidence has ever been found that he has done anything but publish the truth. He is relentlessly attacked by those who fear the truth will put them in jeopardy and those who cannot accept Hillary Clinton’s defeat.

We urge you to take action. By granting him a pardon you can end this travesty of justice.

Reasons for signing

  • He helped bring light to criminals in government
  • Dear Donald please help Julian Assange. He is very sick and physicians warned that he will die if he doesn't get help soon. They are torturing him in England. This is unacceptable. Why is the UN not stepping in? How is this possible? Can you help in some way?
  • Government Of the people, By the people, For the people.
