Share: Upcoming Twitterstorm for imprisoned Pirate Bay co-founder (01/07/14)
We would like to draw your attention to the unjust treatment of Gottfrid Svartholm Warg — co-founder of The Pirate Bay — who currently being held in a prison near Copenhagen, Denmark. We ask that you join us for a Twitterstorm on Tuesday, Jan. 7th to rally support for Warg.
Warg, a.k.a. “anakata” (all lowercase), is also a known associate of WikiLeaks and credited with aiding in the decryption of “Collateral Murder,” the video leaked by Private Manning which shows the slaughter of unarmed journalists by American forces.
According to anakata’s attorney, he has been held in isolation at times inside the Danish prison. This was not ordered by any judge, but imposed by prison services, who cited a law used to punish violent offenders and terrorists. anakata is still being denied mail and reading materials. He is only permitted 1 hour visits with his mother each week, and only under strict supervision.
We find the conditions in which anakata is being held totally unacceptable. He is not a terrorist, nor is he a violent in any way.
Our request is only that anakata be treated fairly and humanely. We ask that he be given access to reading and educational material; that he be allowed to read his mail; and that he be allowed to receive other visitors, without their conversation being observed by prison employees.
It is also important for the public to understand the political motivations behind anakata’s imprisonment. He poses a threat to those who maintain control through international copyright enforcement, intelligence collection and the disruption of the free press. Please join us as we speak out against his unjust treatment and let the world know that anakata is, in fact, a political prisoner.
Date & Time:
Tuesday, January 7th, 2014 12PM PST / 3PM EST / 8PM GMT
Instructions will be delivered on @YourAnonNews and @free_anakata one hour before the Twitterstorm.
