Edward Snowden Is Asking You To Help Julian Assange

As a journalist watching what is happening to Assange, I can only imagine how he feels.

Perhaps the biggest sign of mass psychosis in this case is watching most journalists in mainstream media go along with the governments ideas about Assange, effectively putting their own profession at risk and doing the opposite of what it was designed to do – hold the government accountable.

If extradited and convicted in the US, Assange faces up to 175 years in prison. 10 years for each of the 17 charges filed under the Espionage Act, and five for a Computer Fraud and Abuse Act violation.
