Assange’s case reflects a real danger to our society and to our time – artist Ai Weiwei

Activists supporting #WikiLeaks co-founder Julian #Assange staged a rally in front of the Brandenburg Gate in #Berlin on Thursday. The protest was organised by the pan-European DiEM25 party. A number of prominent politicians and artists joined the event.

Ai Weiwei, Chinese Artist: “This case reflects a real danger to our society and to our time, because Julian Assange is very symbolic in freedom of speech, and also in freedom of press. So if this case is made, it would endanger all the journalists and all the individuals who is (are) defending those very essential rights.”
