9/23 Forum: The Attack On Julian Assange, Journalists, Democratic Rights, Labor & Imperialist War

Sunday, September 23, 2018 10:30 AM
Niebyl Proctor Library
6501 Telegraph Ave, Oakland, CA

The effort by the US government to continue to attempt to arrest whistleblower and journalist Julian Assange is a threat to all labor, journalists and free speech rights. He has exposed the criminal activities of governments and corporate crooks as well as the corrupt Democratic party who manipulated the results of the primary in last election. Governments, politicians and the billionaires who he has exposed want to shut him up to silence all whistleblowers and journalists.

This forum will look at the attack on Julian Assange on not only the attack on all democratic rights but also the growing crisis in capitalism and US imperialism. It will also look at the role of independent media on how the Julian Assange case is being covered.
