15 Nov 2019 - The ABC mocks Anderson in today's article !
Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson has penned another opus to Scott Morrison on behalf of her bosom buddy Julian Assange. “You cannot let him be extradited,” Anderson pleads. “You must protect him and have his back. It’s a death trap. It will go down in the history books as the weakest decision ever made by Australia.” The lengthy letter, which reads more like free-form poetry than formal correspondence, has multiple references to Anderson’s mentor, “activist” (and Playboy founder) Hugh Hefner. “Hef might have set me up for this. ‘Controversy creates change’ he would say — and ‘artists are the freedom fighters of the world’ … I have gotten to know Julian — he is worth fighting for and he requires your intervention and all of our support.” Anderson says Assange is “hanging on like a superhero in a Belmarsh super maximum security prison’s hospital in London” and she plans to visit him before she flies to the Gold Coast this month. “When I can give him a smile and he smiles back, when I can touch his hand and look into his gentle eyes, his spirits rise.” OK!
Anderson is demanding to meet Morrison during her time Down Under but her invitation has yet to receive a response. The PM’s office told Strewth he would “respond in due course”. Morrison previously has said Assange should “face the music” and last year mocked the actress: “I’ve had plenty of mates who’ve asked me if they can be my special envoy to sort the issue out with Pamela Anderson.”

From Pamela to Australia November 7, 2019 Urgent Appeal to Bring Julian Assange Home sent to:
Hon. Scott Morrison Prime Minister of Australia Senator the Hon. Marise Payne, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Women
All Parliamentarians of the Government of Australia,
I am pleased to be advised that Australian parliamentarians from across the political spectrum are now choosing to stand and work together to bring Julian Assange home to Australia. The establishment of the “Bring Assange Home Parliamentary Group” is a great leap forward in upholding the human rights of this Australian citizen and journalist.
Julian Assange is hanging on like a super hero in Belmarsh super maximum security prison’s hospital in London and I will be visiting him again the day before my arrival To the Gold Coast this month. Personally -
I am extremely distressed at the thought of his declining state - though I know his mind is as sharp as they come - I am hopeful that he will even be able to recover from the traumatic psychological torture that he has been systematically subjected to, as declared by the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Mr Nils Melzer. Julian must be allowed to heal in a natural environment that he has been deprived of for so long. The natural beauty of his native country Australia, surrounded by his loving family is what he urgently needs. Knowing Julian as I do - he can survive this - he is strong, focused and willing to sacrifice even his life for all of us. But for me, I’m just not willing to accept that or allow that to happen. Now more than ever before Julian needs Australians to support him, so that he can continue to be the journalist Australians are proud to call their own, one of the most respected and awarded journalists of our time in fact. The best in the world, as so many say and that’s why everyone’s so upset.
When I visit Julian in a few weeks
I am very much looking forward to be able to convey to him that the tide is shifting. Australian citizens on mass together with Australian parliamentarians are now standing up and together to declare they want the Australian Government to “Bring Assange Home”. I know this will be a crucial piece of great news that will lift Julian’s spirits. I know he is able to hear his supporters cheering for him outside the confining walls of Belmarsh prison - When I can give him a smile and he smiles back, when I can touch his hand and look into his gentle eyes, his spirits rise. He is a great and honest man. A true and fantastic Aussie You cannot let him be extradited. You must protect him and have his back. - It’s a death trap. It will go down in the history books as the weakest decision ever made by Australia. It is evident now that citizens of western democracies are rapidly waking up to the reality that Julian Assange is being tortured for political reasons and nothing more.
I am also preparing to speak with President Trump on my return. I know most people must think: What does this girl think she is ? I ask myself the same question, but here I am and I cannot deny my responsibility. I have gotten to know Julian - he is worth fighting for. and he requires your intervention and all of our support.
I am going to do all I can. I’m not giving up. I will make sure that his story remains public and that freedom of expression and freedom of the press are protected as these are without question the very foundations of democracy. My friend and another mentor Hugh Hefner was also an activist. Hef might have set me up for this. “Controversy creates change” he would say - and “artists are the freedom fighters of the world”. Citizens of the world are also now becoming aware of the devastating legal precedent that will be established if Julian is extradited. It is unconscionable that a citizen of Australia or any other western democracy may be extradited to the USA - a potential death sentence for simply publishing the facts -exposing systemic government criminality and war crimes.
I must also highlight that Julian Assange has and is being unfairly and inappropriately disadvantaged in the mounting of his defence. He is unable to study for his defense and kept ill and tired with no access to library, no computer, he cannot access “his writings”, he has had not enough time with his lawyers - while he is left cruelly in solitary confinement. Considering all that has happened to him, my heart breaks for him while a superpower has taken almost 10 years with the big shot lawyers and access to everything imaginable to take him down. Noting if they succeed in taking him down, so they also in effect take all other investigative journalists down with him.
Where is the outcry of every journalist? Do they fear (for) their employment that much ?
It’s outrageous - as we have come to learn All the embassy meetings were apparently secretly recorded as well including discussion with his legal representatives. His legal case files were seized following what appears to have been an illegal extraction of a political asylee from the Ecuadorian Embassy and those files were then handed over to the very nation he had been granted Asylum and protection from (the USA). Given these circumstances, how can this be considered a normal and acceptably fair legal process? The politically charged persecution of a fact publishing journalist and my friend Julian Assange is a modern day travesty of justice that frankly is breathtaking for any fair minded citizen regardless of political persuasion. I make a heartfelt personal plea to every parliamentarian that is charged with the responsibility to uphold the protection of the citizens of Australia to now stand and protect Julian Assange by initiating contact with your counterparts in the USA and Britain and demand no extradition and allow Julian to walk free as a valuable teacher and Citizen of Australia. Allowing him to return to his home and hug his mother, father and his children. This will inturn also uphold the sovereign rights of your citizens which is the highest order of an elected parliamentarian.
With love and hope,
“The First Amendment guarantees freedom of speech, freedom of press and you cannot have a free society if you do not have both.” - Hugh Hefner

Open Letter to President Trump:
Dear President Trump,
We are journalists, activists and citizens from the United States and around the world who care about press freedom and are writing to you in response to the latest threat of prosecution against WikiLeaks for its journalistic work. We ask you to immediately close the Grand Jury investigation into WikiLeaks and drop any charges against Julian Assange and other Wikileaks staff members which the Department of Justice is planning.
This threat to WikiLeaks escalates a long-running war of attrition against the great virtue of the United States — free speech. The Obama Administration prosecuted more whistleblowers than all presidents combined and opened a Grand Jury investigation into WikiLeaks that had no precedent. It now appears the US is preparing to take the next step — prosecuting publishers who provide the "currency" of free speech, to paraphrase Thomas Jefferson. It is reported that charges, including conspiracy, theft of government property and violating the Espionage Act are being considered against members of WikiLeaks, and that charging WikiLeaks Editor, Julian Assange, is now a priority of the Department of Justice.
A threat to WikiLeaks' work — which is publishing information protected under the First Amendment — is a threat to all free journalism. If the DOJ is able to convict a publisher for its journalistic work, all free journalism can be criminalised.
We call on you as President of the United States to close the Grand Jury investigation into WikiLeaks and drop any charges planned against any member of WikiLeaks. It was a free and robust press that provided you with a platform on which to run for president. Defending a truly free press requires freedom from fear and favour and the support of journalists and citizens everywhere; for the kind of threat now facing WikiLeaks — and all publishers and journalists — is a step into the darkness.
