For Truth, Justice and Peace: Julian Assange


Dear Mr Joe Biden, 

President of The United States of America,


Active for 101 years of struggle for 

Freedom of Expression and Peace,

as PEN International, 

the leading worldwide organization of writers, 

translators, journalists and editors, 

we are hopeful when addressing You: 


Is peace vital? 

Is justice necessary for peace?

Is truth necessary for justice?


If the answer is Yes to all three,

then the reply to the fourth question is clear:

Should Julian Assange be free?


Benjamin Franklin would thank Julian Assange.


Let Truth be free

so that Justice can have a chance

leading to World Peace.


Warm regards and best wishes,


Writers for Peace Committee of PEN International
