Rally for Julian Assange @ MA Statehouse

Tue February 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Join a worldwide show of support for Julian Assange and press freedom on the first day of Assange’s final extradition hearing. Julian Assange must be free! Publishing true info about US war crimes is not a crime!

Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, is in prison in London awaiting extradition to the US where our government wants to try him using the Espionage Act and put him away for 175 years!

Ahead of the final UK court day, let’s call on Congress to sign-on to H.Res. 934 that calls for dropping the charges on Assange – Congressional switchboard: 202-224-3121. It’s ‘Now or Never’ to stop the extradition!

If you will be close to London, join the thousands who will rally outside of the Royal Courts of Justice.

Protesters outside the Royal Courts of Justice in London, after Assange’s defense was given permission to appeal the extradition, on January 24, 2022.

Stella Assange is speaking. Behind her is Kristinn Hrafnsson, the current WikiLeaks editor in chief, then Rebecca Vincent from Reporters Without Borders and Craig Murray, on the right, who covered the 2020 extradition hearing.
