Jimmy Wales says ‘stop the extradition of Richard O’Dwyer’

When I first checked Jimmy Wales’ petition to stop the extradition of Richard O’Dwyer to the USA, this morning at about 7:00am, the number stood at 8000 signatures. Now, just over 12 hours later, it has grown to more than 30,000. Come on guys, let’s keep it growing.

It doesn’t matter what nationality you are – there’s an international principle here. In Jimmy Wales’ words, “O’Dwyer is not a US citizen, he’s lived in the UK all his life, his site was not hosted there, and most of his users were not from the US.” So if you are American, ask yourself this: if the UK were to demand the extradition of a US citizen who lives in the USA and has broken no US laws to face trial in the UK, how would you feel?

You had the courage to face down SOPA. Now help us preserve a small piece of our liberty.

Sign the petition here. Please.
