Assange’s Father on US Tour, includes Minneapolis/St. Paul — Rise Up Times

“Assange’s family members will meet with activists, press, and policymakers to raise awareness of the importance of protecting whistleblowers and journalists, and to advocate for the release of Julian Assange, whom the United Nations has declared “arbitrarily detained” since 2010.”

  1. The original link to the Miami video did not work. A new YouTube link was created. Go to RiseUpTimes.org and scroll down and you willl find a working video of the Miami panel with Assange’s father and brother.

        Cool, glad to have been able to help. An hour and a half, though? I’ll try to find the time to watch it; I think Assange deserves that.

    Admittedly, I’m on the fence a little bit concerning Assange himself, but not whistleblowers in general. Whistleblowers are essential. I hope I’d be as courageous if the time ever came. But Assange…some part of me holds him accountable for helping Trump get elected (indirectly) although he made it clear the GOP was favored over Hillary. I’m not a big Hillary fan by any means, but would there have been an insurrection on her watch, I wonder? Not to mention everything else tha happened. I don’t know anymore. I guess Assange, no matter his faults, is braver than me, and a lot of people. He probably does deserve this viewing, at the very least.

      Stacey, I appreciate hearing your thoughts on the situations. If ever the fb expression, “it’s complicated” described anything it would be this.

    Thanks, Li. That’s it exactly. It’s complicated. Very, very complicated. Definitely more than can be addressed in a few paragraphs, for sure! 🙂
