The Open Letter in Defence of WikiLeaks’ Right to Publish was authored by a group of publishers, journalists and filmmakers in response to calls from high-ranking US politicians for the prosecution and even execution of WikiLeaks editor-in-chief, Julian Assange.

Signed by over 200 prominent figures from a range of professions, the letter aims to prove that there is a serious body of international public opinion against  any future attempts to clamp down on, intimidate or crush leakers and those who publish leaks.

We believe the letter speaks for itself, and invite you to pledge your support to the principle of the Right to Publish by signing the WikiLeaks Open Letter today.
