“Who will help to rescue free press?” (Poem)
November 25, 2019
This man is the founder of WikiLeaks who revealed corruption and systematic war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq committed by the US. The western mainstream media is pretty much silent about it.
And in Denmark I tell you, the media are completely silent.
If you are a Danish citizen and only read Danish news, you will never get exposed to the perspectives of the slow torture of Julian Assange in a UK prison cell. This is a journalist who revealed war crimes which killed innocent people.
If Julian Assange doesn’t die in this cell he probably will be extradicted to the US and face an American court. Even though Julian Assange is not a US citizen. He is an Australian citizen.
If Julian gets extradicted it is a warning to all journalists and the last members of the free press in western democracies. The message is clear: “Dear journalists. This is what happens if you are sniffing around too much.”
If you want to live in a democracy with a free and independent press, stand up for Julian Assange and tell your favourite media that you will like them to cover the case.
This poem is for a free press and Julian Assange.
“Who will help to rescue free press?”
Seems sealed in a locked room
In a cell
Buried in hell
Here, the free world is slaying a white knight
Howling, lonely in the night
The keys to his cell got thrown away
To make the people unconsciously accept the real betray
The becoming ghost, desperately screams to deaf ears
While the last faith in free speech disappears
A proclaimed threat to the country, chosen by God
Who in God’s name, machinegun down innocent hearts
Now staged in a theatre, disguised as a prisoner
The knight faces the judge, the jury and the executioner
Performs in a play as the villain against the deceptive hero
Who might one day let the mask go?
But then, it could be too late
To save a cremate
Take action, don’t take revenge
To save free press and Julian Assange
/Jesper Munk Jakobsen
Note Danish: Den 15. april 2019 skrev jeg denne kommentar i forbindelse med anholdelsen af Julian Assange: “Anholdelsen af Julian Assange udstiller journalisters tætte bånd til den etablerede magt“
