Julian Assange a Modern Hero. Today France should grant Julian Assange political asylum.
Aujourd'hui la France devrait accorder l'asile politique à Julian Assange.
“Only France is now able to offer me the necessary protection against the political persecution,” Assange said, adding that welcoming him would not only be humanitarian, “but also probably a symbolic gesture, sending an encouragement to all journalists and whistleblowers in the world, who risk their lives every day to allow their citizens to take another step closer to the truth.”
This week, a number of French cultural figures, including director Jacques Audiard, actor Vincent Cassel and composer Jean Michel Jarre, signed a petition asking the French president to “act firmly” and grant political asylum to Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, who have been paying “the price of exile for their courage” for several years.
Saying that the whistleblowers have been “subjected to constant harassment... for revealing violation of the rights of millions of human beings and sovereignty of many states, including France,” the country has a duty to accommodate those “who are persecuted because of their fight for freedom,” the letter published on Mediapart, a French online journal, stated.
