Julian Assange wins Gavin MacFadyen Journalism award – Videos and Photos 28/09/2019 Belmarsh Prison

“OVER 200 supporters of jailed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange held a lively rally and a march on Saturday to the gates outside Belmarsh high security prison in south east London where he is being held.
