Save Assange, save democracy

The Secret power: Why they want to destroy Julian Assange and WikiLeaks (Il potere segreto: Perché vogliono distruggere Julian Assange e WikiLeaks)
Forfatter: Stefania Maurizi
Forlag: Chiarelettere (Italia)
FAIRNESS: While the US extradition request for Assange will be processed in another court round, Assange is still fighting a battle for democracy and journalistic integrity.

"I want to live in a world that sends war criminals to prison, and does not imprison those who have the courage to report criminals or journalists who expose the crimes," Maurizii writes in the book. The Secret Power.

The book was published by Chiarelette publishing house this summer and was sold out immediately. Now it has come in a new edition, also as an e-book. But will the release, interest, and engagement of readers be enough for Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, who revealed government secrets, to avoid life in prison in the United States?

A bitter truth

Maurizi brings several bitter truths to light, but the most bitter of them all is the fact that a democratic society does not exist, and that Assange has been unfree ever since the first WikiLeaks revelation. It is not surprising that the British film director Ken Loach in the book's preface writes "this is a book that will make you really cursed". It will. Precisely because the book leaves no room for doubt.
Stefania Maurizi is an excavation journalist who has worked closely with Assange og WikiLeaks ever since they contacted her in 2009, when they needed a journalist to verify leaked documents related to Italy, and get help to assess how much interest the documents would arouse in the Italian people.
At the time, Maurizi worked for L'Espresso and La Repubblica, now. . .
