Free Ola Bini

Swedish programmer, privacy activist and friend of Assange, Ola Bini was arrested in Ecuador, where he was living, on the same day Assange was arrested by the UK authorities at the Ecuadorian embassy, in April 2019, for “alleged participation in the crime of assault on the integrity of computer systems” for which there are no proofs and he was arbitrarily detained.

“The number of actors targeting the United States is growing. Russia and China operate globally, use all instruments of national power to target the United States, and have a broad range of sophisticated intelligence capabilities. Other state adversaries such as Cuba, Iran, and North Korea; non-state actors such as Lebanese Hizballah, ISIS, and al-Qa’ida; as well as, transnational criminal organizations and ideologically motivated entities such as hacktivists, leaktivists, and public disclosure organizations, also pose significant threats.”
