We shall listen to his words and his voice through recordings, listen to music inspired by his struggle, make speeches, share food, cut a cake in his honour and walk up to the gates for some loud chanting.
Join us as and when you can!

I’m sorry I could not be in London yesterday. I’ve just played Caitlin Johnstone’s video art creation which she made for Julian’s 50th birthday. I found it very moving. https://youtu.be/xh5-CtGmE3A
I hope Julian will soon be free.
Song for Julian
Dear Julian, all the best for your 50th birthday! We and all future generations will tell each other the story of a wizard who, through his courageous and self-sacrificing deeds, changed the world and made it a better place! Don’t give up, because we won’t give up either until the truth has triumphed in the end.
We are with you!
Chris and Karo
