Time to Free Julian Assange

category international | rights, freedoms and repression | press release author Thursday October 28, 2021 23:22author by 1 of Indy Report this post to the editors

Unfortunately this should have been posted earlier

The reputation of British justice now rests on the shoulders of the High Court in the life or death case of Julian Assange.

The appeal hearing at the High Court which will decide Julian Assange’s immediate fate has been set for Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th October. This is a watershed moment in the most important press freedom case of the 21st century. If the appeal court upholds the decision to refuse extradition to the US made by Westminster Magistrates Court last January it will make it very difficult for the US to continue to seek extradition…

Today marks 2 years that Julian Assange has been held on remand in Bellmarsh prison. As he has been in max-security prison for more than two and a half years in total, actor Mark Rylance, MPs Zarah Sultana and Jeremy Corbyn, rapper Lowkey and activist Salma Yaqoob call for him to be freed.

Julian Assange is being held on remand for 2 years in London’s high security prison in UK solely on the US’s behalf. Julian won in court against the US government in January 2021. He remains imprisoned while the US appeals.

During the Stop the War! conference to mark 20 years of the war on terror, John Rees spoke about campaigning and the importance of freeing Julian Assange.

“It’s up to you, it’s up to us. Take this into your own hands and make sure that the United States government don’t keep this man in jail because he is one of us, one of ours, and we need him out and free.”
