Don´t shoot the messenger
To UK Prime Minister David Cameron, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt and US President Barack Obama:
We call on you to protect the rights of whistleblowers and transparency platforms by immediately ending the crackdown on Wikileaks and guaranteeing not to extradite, prosecute or mistreat Julian Assange for charges related to furthering transparency. We call on you to set a global precedent of protecting dissidents and activists who strengthen government by shining a light on corruption and injustice.

After secretly gathering evidence, the Obama administration could push for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, currently in London, to be extradited to the US any day -- where he could face the same inhumane treatment as alleged informant Bradley Manning. Assange is prepared to travel to Sweden for questioning over sex allegations, but it's crucial that Sweden and the UK guarantee they won’t bundle him off to the US. This would set a chilling global precedent against those who bravely unveil corruption and human rights violations.
Whatever we think of Assange as a person, Wikileaks has been a critical tool in exposing massive government and corporate wrongdoing. Let´s join together now to ensure the powerful can’t silence dissenting voices that strengthen our democracies. Sign the petition to stop the global crackdown and call for Swedish and UK guarantees not to ship Assange to the US, and then share this email -- we will spectacularly deliver our voices through a human chain of whistleblowers to the Swedish embassy in London, when we reach 1 million signatures:
