SAVING ASSANGE: Defending Wikileaks (2020)

4.0 ·
4

SAVING ASSANGE is an archive-driven, compilation, internet documentary that uses extracts from news bulletins, broadcast programs, TV docs, talk shows and other online content to revise the Assange saga and argue the legal, moral and ethical case for Julian Assange and Wikileaks.

Is Assange a journalist...or cyber-terrorist? A rapist, or victim? A hero, or traitor? A madman, or martyr? Watch, and judge for yourself.

Noam Chomsky, Daniel Ellsberg, Annie Machon, John Pilger, Pamela Anderson, Max Blumenthal, Vivienne Westwood, Lee Camp, Chris Hedges, Amal Clooney, Mairead Maguire, and Roger Waters...are just some of the professionals, journalists, artists, politicians, celebrities and other dissenting voices advocating for Assange and Wikileaks in this 4-part docu series.

Part 1 recaps the backstory of Julian Assange and Wikileaks, the so-called rape accusations, and seven years of asylum leading up to his forced, illegal eviction from the Ecuadorian Embassy and arrest by British Police in 2019.

Part 2 interrogates the legality of Assange's arrest, his fight against extradition to the United States, the role of the deep state in his persecution, and the chilling effect his arrest will have on other journalists, publishers and whistle-blowers.

Part 3 questions the lack of solidarity and support from the international journalism community, and whether Assange is indeed a legitimate journalist/publisher, or merely a "Russian Agent."

Part 4 revisits some of the most devastating Wikileaks Revelations, and calls on the public to support, defend and save Assange from extradition, torture and possible murder by the US government.

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
