“If Jeremy Hammond would have been found guilty of the crimes he is alleged to have committed in Iceland, his actions would have been considered an act of bravery. His maximum sentence would have been counted in months, not decades.” Birgitta JonsDottir Icelandic Member of Parliament
 “Jeremy’s treatment by the government, unfortunately, is in line with that of other political prisoners where guilt, innocence, proportionality, and the constitution itself are disregarded in the pursuit of politicized convictions. Heidi Boghosian Executive Director of the National Lawyers Guild

If justice is to be served the courts must distinguish between principled activity and nefarious, criminal acts. He has already spent enough time behind bars; time-served is sufficient punishment.” Gabriella Coleman Wolfe Chair in Scientific and Technological Literacy, McGill University
