That is what freedom of the press is.
Journalists being hacked apart with saws in embassies, and publishers being forcibly dragged out of embassies to face years in jail for publishing, cannot become the new normal. With so many of the Five Eyes involved in this case, as part of your efforts to defend and extend the democratic freedom of the press and expression, I ask that you will use your good offices to call for this case to be immediately closed. Breaking the silence on Assange: More than 40 peace activists from Germany have shared a FreeAssange support video.
Shipton revealed that Assange had received a visit from his brother Gabriel several days earlier. He is still in fighting spirits, but his well-being is declining rapidly. Or you will lose him.

WSWS : You have previously said that if the media had spoken out when the Obama administration was developing its case against Assange and WikiLeaks then the current situation may not have happened.

Translated from German by Ben Fowkes, Tom O’Lincoln and Rick Kuhn
I wonder if there had been more support from the media, and human rights groups had pushed back harder, whether this indictment would have been politically feasible. Can you comment on this, and is Julian aware of the growing support for his freedom internationally? It really does make a difference—Julian is heartened by it. Even though WikiLeaks is protected by the First Amendment, it will take a very long time to return to the United States for that legal argument to be ever made.
So the solidarity campaign is important in relationship to whatever happens to him in the meantime.
It is crucial that there is a social movement, here in this country and around the world, to call the powers to account on what this indictment means, not just for him but for all the media. We thank you for the massive support and strong reactions that have come, both from journalists and others. We take it as a signal that freedom of the press really means a lot to many.

The story contains several substantive shortcomings and too many factual errors.
