Today is April 5. Exactly 10 years ago WikiLeaks released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in Iraq - including two Reuters journalists and injuring small children. It was called Collateral Murder.

The killers in the video are running free whereas Julian Assange, the publisher who revealed the crime, has been politically persecuted and deprived of his freedom for ten years now.

He is currently under pre-trial detention at a high-security prison reserved for those suspects of murder, threatened by extradition to the US, and highly vulnerable to the Coronavirus, after his humanitarian bail request was rejected.
