International media are reporting that WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief may imminently be handed by Ecuador to UK authorities. (Ref)

If such an event occurs, it presents an immediate threat to Assange’s human rights, asylum rights, liberty and to press freedoms. It would also be in direct contravention to the rulings of the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention and the Inter-American Court of human rights, both of which have found in his favour.

The #Unity4J movement in support of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks is holding an emergency public meeting to unveil a plan for mass non-violent action to demand freedom for the journalist and publisher. High profile supporters of Julian Assange will be in attendance and unveil the new strategy.

The vigil will be held in a roundtable format with many guests from previous vigils, and a few new faces as well, who will discuss the current state of Assange’s asylum and the future of the #Unity4J movement. Taking place at 23:00 UTC on Saturday ( Los Angeles: Sat 16:00 , New York: Sat 19:00, London: Sun 00:00, Berlin: Sun 1:00, Sydney: Sun 9:00, Auckland: 11:00 ) the vigil will continue for approximately 3 hours.

#Unity4J originated from an unplanned but timely response to injustice when Julian Assange’s internet access and visitation rights were abruptly taken away and swiftly grew into high-profile monthly online vigils endorsed by Chris Hedges, George Galloway, Ray McGovern, Bill Binney and Daniel Ellsberg among many other noteworthy figures. It is with that same sense of urgency and duty to take a public stand against oppression that we are organising this Saturday to resist the escalated violations of Julian’s basic rights.

“Every time we witness an injustice and do not act, we train our character to be passive in its presence and thereby eventually lose all ability to defend ourselves and those we love.” -Julian Assange

  1. The War on Assange Is a War on Press Freedom Chris Hedges

    ” The failure on the part of establishment media to defend Julian Assange, who has been trapped in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012, has been denied communication with the outside world since March and appears to be facing imminent expulsion and arrest, is astonishing. The extradition of the publisher—the maniacal goal of the U.S. government—would set a legal precedent that would criminalize any journalistic oversight or investigation of the corporate state. It would turn leaks and whistleblowing into treason. It would shroud in total secrecy the actions of the ruling global elites. If Assange is extradited to the United States and sentenced, The New York Times, The Washington Post and every other media organization, no matter how tepid their coverage of the corporate state, would be subject to the same draconian censorship. Under the precedent set, Donald Trump’s Supreme Court would enthusiastically uphold the arrest and imprisonment of any publisher, editor or reporter in the name of national security. “

    • I wonder if Trump realises what an enormous boost it would give his popularity if he were to anounce that US has no interest in extraditing him.

  2. Sad, democracy and human rights has got down to this point where people who publish the truth about a government’s actions with taxpayers money even if they show they are in breach of international law or human rights, have become hunted down.

  3. Julian Assange has been among the greatest threats to the U.S. Empire and their motley European allies, that unfortunately includes N.Z. The new N.Z Labour/ N.Z First/ Greens government will continue its grovelling obeisance to the Nazi U.S. Empire , that has been done formerly so grotesquely by the Neocon National Party Govt, and will do nothing.The British government will extradite Assange to the U.S. to be jailed for 200 years or executed. One more avenue for the broadcasting of the TRUTH will be silenced.An iron curtain of repression is slowly coming over the Western experiment through the Western Govts, Western MSM, and the Internet false narratives.And we sit here like boiled frogs waiting for our turn in the pot.On the bright side ,the cavorting of Herr Trump signals the fundamental contradictions of the U.S. evil Empire, and presages the future collapse of the whole degenerate edifice. Bring it on!!!

  4. Full support here, and contact the Russian embasy to come and take Jullian under their freedom of association and travel to move him to Moscow.

    So now Russia is the bastion of freedom not the west.

  5. goodbye freedom of the press, hello Gitmo for non american citizens who publish anything the septic tanks dont like to read about themselves, our government certainly wont whine when all there narking cables where exposed on wikileaks, our citizens do this our government does that, bunch of traitors, but i get it, cant have the great unwashed knowing what the bribe taking, shit talking herd leaders are really up too.
    Busy lining there pockets and donating 5 mil to that Crooked Hrh bitch about sums up there resistance to the New World Empire, ive said it before, ill say it again, dont listen to them, burn them all.

  7. This could be a good thing?
    If Trump/Qanon/ ‘The Generals’ have taken over from the deep state/obama/clintons, then Julian could be in safe hands?
    He just has to survive until he gives evidence. ‘They’ will take down the whole plane if he flys. The US embassy might be his safest place?

  8. Am I missing something? Why has Ecuador suddenly decided to hand Lassange over to the UK and then to the USA? Ecuador is only a small country. What pressure has it been subjected to ? Trade sanctions? Is there any truly democratic country anywhere on this planet.

  9. We need to show our support for Assange! Have any of you read the absolutely (and absolutely typical) S* article on this at TS?? But at least most of the comments in reply reject the attack on Assange.

  10. What has Assange actually achieved for humanity? He helped Trump get elected….the single biggest fuck u to the planet in 70 years.

    I can think of many worse places to be the in self imposed exile in a multi million pound residence in London…..so i really don’t give a toss about how he’s coping there…don’t like it..then all he has to do is walk out the door.

    Chelsea Manning has shown TRUE courage….served her time….Assange is spineless and a Russian stooge….Putin can blow a plane full of innocent people to pieces….where’s the outrage? Russia is NOT the guiding light of humanity…to say any different shows no understanding of what’s going on.

  11. M King=ALT RIGHT Troll, Putin didnt blow the plane DUMBASS it was shot down bye the real Fascists in the piece, the Yank Funded Nazi Separatists from Ukraine, they are openly fascists and have been since ww2, do you clowns ever bother to research your foul spew
