All concerned citizens are welcome at the Brisbane UK Consulate every day this week. We continue to participate in the world wide peaceful protest saying to the UK – don’t extradite our rights! No extradition USA, no more torture, slow motion assassination or state murder of multi-award winning journalist and publisher, Julian Assange, a child of the Northern Rivers, at the behest of the USA. We call for his immediate safe release so he can get urgent medical attention.
Australian MPs Andrew Wilkie and George Christensen have confirmed, from their visit with him this week, that they believe he is a political prisoner.
The precedent this case sets is like something from a George Orwell novel. Julian is being charged under the USA 1917 espionage act – which was updated in 1961 ‘to include all world citizens’.
We have the right to know of any crimes committed in our name by our government. Crimes that kill hundreds of thousands of innocent people. That we fund with tax dollars in the military budget.
Stand up on the right side of history. If you vote – write to your local MP and ask them to join the working parliamentary group for Julian ASAP.
