Julian Assange, WikiLeaks & war crimes | Peter Mertens meets Stella Assange
With his media platform WikiLeaks, Julian Assange exposed war crimes committed by US and European armies against Iraq and Afghanistan. Once grounds for a Nobel Peace Prize nomination, today his journalistic work is rewarded with a witch-hunt and imprisonment. On the outside, his wife Stella is fighting for his freedom.
Peter Mertens meets Julia Assange for an in-depth conversation. About the cover-up of state sponsored crimes. About how wars start with lies and can only be ended with the truth. How Julian Assange's case sets a new standard for criminalizing journalism worldwide. And about Stella’s plea against powerlessness, but to fight together for democracy.
