We send a call out to all individuals, human rights groups and organisations, members of the public, to join us in marking the anniversary, showing solidarity and thanking brave Ecuador for protecting Julian Assange’s human rights by granting him political asylum.
The United Nations Working Group in Arbitrary Detention in a long investigation which both Sweden and the UK participated has published its opinion in February 5th this year. In it it found that Julian Assange is arbitrarily detained. The UN body demands that he should be set free and compensated. Both UK and Sweden refuse to follow the UN opinion and continue to detain the WikiLeaks Editor.
We stand in Solidarity with Julian Assange and demand UK and Sweden adhere to their international obligations under International Law, free and compensate Julian Assange.
Julian Assange has put his Life on the line with his Work at WikiLeaks! Defend his Human Rights against the unjust and arbitrary detention by UK and Swedish governments.
Defend Julian Assange!
