On World Press Freedom Day: May 3, 2023 A Day Of Action To Free Journalists Julilan Assange/Mumia Abu-jamal, Defend All Journalists & Freedom Of The Press

May 3 is the annual World Press Freedom Day. Throughout the world journalist are being
targeted, tortured and murdered and there is growing censorship by governments &
corporate media. In the United States, the two most world known journalists are Julian
Assange who was also publisher of Wiki-leaks and Mumia Abu-Jamal. Julian Assange
is member of the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance in Australia and has been imprisoned
in the UK for “espionage” and Mumia was a member of CWA NABET and working as a journalist
on Philadelphia’s NPR (National Public Radio) radio station, WUHY-FM, (now WHYY) in Philadelphia and was
president of the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists. The SEIU in 2000,
ILWU Local 10 and CWA PMWG have also called for his freedom.
NPR was also broadcasting commentaries from Mumia but his
commentaries were removed after pressure from the police.
Many of the largest papers around the world including the Washington Post,
The Guardian and New York Times have demanded the dropping of the charges
& freedom of Julian Assange yet they are silent about case of Mumia Abu-Jamal.
These cases are absolutely connected and we call on KQED, NPR, PBS and all
major media in the US to support the freeom of both Julian Assange
and Mumia Abu-Jamal.
The UK’s National Union of Journalists has stated that the “US charges
against Assange pose a huge threat, one that could criminalize the
critical work of investigative journalists & their ability to protect their
sources.”
There will also be actions in the US and around the world. We will also have
reports on the fight against censorship here and from around the world and
struggles of journalists globally for their rights and freedoms.
