NOTE! Latest news!
The Supreme Court in London rejects Assange’s defence lawyers’ appeal against the decision to deport him to the US!
Home Secretary Priti Patel can make a decision on deportation after 4 weeks from the Supreme Court decision.
Come and protest.
Where is the rule of law? Where is the freedom of the press? Is it reasonable that Julian Assange, journalist and publisher, should be imprisoned in the UK’s Guantánamo, Belmarsh prison.
He is not accused of anything, but is at risk of being extradited to the United States. In the US, a spy trial is looming in which Julian Assange is accused of exposing serious US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan, corruption, torture and other crimes, and faces 175 years in prison.
This is extremely serious for all journalists and for all of us.
Journalists are supposed to expose irregularities that governments want to conceal. Now ordinary journalistic work is in danger of being regarded and condemned as espionage.
The US 1st Amendment protects everyone’s right to speak.
There is almost total media silence about US war crimes. International law should prevail regardless of whether the US or Russia commits war crimes.
If Julian Assange is convicted of espionage in the US and 1st Amendment protections are overridden, all journalists who want to tell the truth risk being punished. Fear and self-censorship are spreading and we are already seeing it.
STAND UP ON 26 MARCH FOR JULIAN ASSANGE, FREEDOM OF THE PRESS AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH!
See you at Medborgarplatsen 12:15-13:00.
There will be short and snappy speeches.
We only got police permission for this time.
We will go to the No to NATO - No to War demonstration afterwards.
See you there!
