Irish Solidarity with War Resisters and #WikiLeaks Julian #Assange – Report by @CiaronOReilly

Many Thanks to Ciaron O’Reilly reporting from Dublin.

Watch the video (10 mins) with Harry Browne speaking at Dublin Solidarity with Irish War Resisters & WikiLeaks Julian Assange.

Approx 40 folks gathered in Dublin last Wednesday (Feb 21st.) in solidarity with Colm Roddy & Dave Donnellan awaiting trial for anti-war resistance at Shannon Airport in March 2016 and Julian Assange detained for over 7 years without charge in London.

Dave and Colm shared fresh insights into their long trail through the courts (14 appearances thus far/ next one in Ennis March 12th.) for confronting ongoing Irish complicity at Shannon Airport in U.S. wars expanding & escalating across the Middle East.

Tom & Alberto, who have helped to sustain an ongoing solidarity vigil with WikiLeaks & Julian Assange outside the Ecuadorian embassy Knightsbridge/ London for over 5 years, travelled to join us. They shared on the Latin American solidarity, asylum and hospitality offered to Julian from the government and people of Ecuador.

Ciaron O’Reilly shared on Julian as a prisoner, a person and an Australian.

The “(Chelsea) Manning Street Preachers” (see photo below with Paul O’Toole, the Roj Light, Joe Black, Imogen Gunnar & Robbie Robbie Synott) interspersed the reflections with music and song and played on into the evening.

240 euros was raised to cover the flights and expenses of our guests from London.

In solidarity, Protect Julian Assange!
