In the west it is a common misbelief that we have free speech and we do not have political prisoners. This piece is a record of 3 three courageous people who have categorically exposed the truth and have, as a result, been punished by their Governments and paid with their freedom.
In a healthy society that upholds genuine freedom of speech, freedom of the press and ultimately the truth, such injustice would not happen.
The broken bar you see just to the right of Julian Assange is to show some hope in what is otherwise quite a depressing state of affairs. It also represents the cracks that are beginning to appear in the Corporatocracy… as our establishments infrastructure continues to eat away at itself through systematic corruption, it can only continue to exposed itself for those willing to open their eyes… it will all be surpassed and made redundant by the use of blockchain technologies, open source software, and open data.
In Support of our heroes…
I will be making a much larger version of this work which will be auctioned… the proceeds for which will be going towards supporting these 3 courageous individuals and humanitarians… this piece will be at least 82cm X 60cm high
I hope this piece speaks for itself but for those who are not familiar with the faces depicted, here is a brief summary…
From left to right;
In 2013, when working as a CIA subcontractor, Edward discovered that the American, British and other western governments in cooperation with telecommunication companies had been conducting massive global surveillance of the most intrusive nature of billions of their citizens for over a decade despite the governments continually denying publicly that this was true.
This infringement of the most fundamental of human rights, the right to privacy, led Edward bravely following his moral code and make the categoric evidence publicly available. He escaped to Hong Kong he recruited the help of Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, and Ewen MacAskilland. The documents were finally published through The Guardian Newspaper.
Edward Snowden is now the president of the Freedom of Press Foundation:
Before the hunt for Julian Assange, every newspaper in the western world confidently used the information published on Wikileaks as the most trusted source for exposing corruption within political parties, banks and our very own governments.
After 10 years and more than 10 million documents published, Wikileaks never once needed to retract or correct any information. Why? because the documents always came from the very sources they exposed thanks to courageous whistleblowers. The evidence could be used in courts of law as hard evidence.
However, unsurprisingly, these organisations do not like the public to know how they truly operate behind closed doors and will go to great lengths to destroy anyone brave enough to expose them.
To learn more about Julian Assange and Take Action please visit this link:
As Bradley Manning in US Army, she was convicted for espionage after releasing 750,000 documents to Wikileaks. She served 7 years in prison (2010-2017) and was then released after her sentence was commuted (for a lesser crime). She is now back in prison however after her refusal to testify against Julian Assange.
Some of Chelsea’s disclosures include the famous “Collateral Murder” video and the “Afghan War Diaries” that expose the cover up of hundreds of civilian casualties amongst others.
