Laurel, Thalia and I speak out against the prosecution of WikiLeaks and Julian Assange

In a call published on Michael Moore's Website, our house decided to respond. A video will be put together with a cast of hundreds and released on the day of Julian Assange's extradition hearing... We hope that truth and a more transparent government will emerge from this chapter in history.
