"In contemporary society, important public issues need to be collectively engaged with and defended. The current situation that WikiLeaks and Julian Assange encounter is also what we face together. Their predicament serves as a reflection of our society's stance towards freedom of expression and press, which is the basis of any functioning democracy. What happens to them will necessarily affect our collective quality of life."
"Ideas cannot be caged. States of Violence brings this truth to life and demonstrates through art and culture that imprisoning Assange won’t stop what has been set in motion, the truth cannot be untold."
"WikiLeaks revealed the dirty secrets of governments around the world, the imprisonment of children, the killing of civilians and secret services spying on their citizens. So called democracies exposed as blood thirsty criminals. The mask of justice pulled aside to reveal corruption and greed. Julian Assange said that 'One of the best ways to achieve justice is to expose injustice.' The torture and imprisonment of Julian Assange is an injustice, a crime, society should be doing everything it can to free him. Otherwise everyone is a target."
