The Assault on Freedom of the Press in a Time of War


Wikileaks and War: Why didn’t we listen when Julian Assange exposed US war crimes?

What is a war of aggression? What is a war crime? What are crimes against humanity? How is the public to know when they occur and by whom they are perpetrated? What and who censors the press and for what reasons? With the war in Ukraine raging and the ashes in Iraq still smoldering, these questions need to be clearly defined before they can be answered completely and truthfully.

Please join legal scholar Marjorie Cohn and Jim Lafferty from the National Lawyers Guild as they moderate a roundtable discussion on these issues and more on April 27th at 4:00pm PST.

LA Progressive, CodePink, The National Lawyers Guild, ACLU Pasadena/Foothill Chapter, American Constitution Society-San Diego Chapter, and Assange Defense-Los Angeles are hosting a webinar on the threat to freedom of the press in a time of war.

Our roundtable will include Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges, CodePink cofounder Medea Benjamin, author and historian Vijay Prashad, and international human rights lawyer Renata Avila.

The panelists will discuss a citizen’s right and need to know what our governments say and do in our names, the necessity of a free and unhindered press to provide that knowledge to the public, and the existential threat to journalism we now face due to the actions by governments around the globe, including our own.
