Gathering in Support of Julian Assange
January 24 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Tuesday 24th January 12.30-1.30 a gathering across the road from the US Embassy in support of Julian Assange.
Julian Assange remains incarcerated in inhumane conditions in Belmarsh prison in the UK whilst awaiting a decision on his appeal against extradition to the US. Julian’s case is a serious threat to press freedom as well as a serious threat to his life. Anthony Albanese has been practising quiet diplomacy with the US and may (or may not) be making progress. It is important that public support for Julian is maintained. The Alliance Against Political Prosecutions has organised many events in support of Julian. The next one is next Tuesday at 12.30 for an hour outside the US Embassy. Banners and placards are provided but you can bring your own should you wish.
