Rally for Julian Assange: World Press Freedom Day

Mon May 3 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Free Assange Rally at Boston Globe, Jan 22, 2021

Rally for Julian Assange on World Press Freedom Day, May 3.

Gather at the State House at 11am.  At 11:40 march through the Boston
Common and Garden, handing out literature demanding the US drop charges
against Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks.

Assange has been in prison in London for 2 years now, while the US tries to
extradite him to face charges for publishing information exposing US war
crimes.

All charges should be dropped against Julian Assange, who has only told the truth to the people of the world.  Truth telling should not be considered a crime.  He is being held by the UK as the US appeals their decision not to extradite him to face charges under the Espionage Act in the US.

For more info, contact Paula Iasella, assangeboston@gmail.com, 603-654-6433
or Susan McLucas, SusanBMcL@gmail, 617-501-9125.

Massachusetts Peace Action presented a talk by journalist Kevin Gosztola on Julian Assange’s case on February 16.   Watch the video.
