Open Letter to the Judges presiding over the Julian Assange case at Royal Courts of Justice 27th and 28th of October 2021.
-Signatures closed 6am 23/10/21. JADC delegation delivers Open Letter to the Royal Courts at 10:30am. Thank you for participating-
You have in front of you the case US vs Julian Assange, the publisher of media organisation WikiLeaks. The way this case has reached you, you are asked to deliberate on narrow aspects of the law, without looking at the broader picture of the consequences of your decision. You are obliged to look at the law and the evidence impartially and deliberate fulfilling your duty to society and the public.
In fact the decisions you are making are not made in your name but on behalf of society since it is our society that has institutionalised the function of your role. Your decisions are a legal expression of the culture we share as it evolves through the centuries of our nation’s existence.
As members of this society, as members of the public, we hold no role and function in the proceedings before you since there is no jury established and institutionalised in court proceedings today.
We have no role or function as members of society today other than sit in the public gallery and come outside the court raising our voices to be heard loud and clear expressing our view that the the prosecution of Julian Assange is not in the public interest and he should be freed by this court. Yet we are part of the fabric that supports your function. We fund the building and upkeep of such fine buildings, our tax sustains you and your families, we support the good functioning of the Royal Courts by keeping our side of the social contract to adhere to its decisions collectively.
In that capacity we beseech you, do not put upon us collectively the responsibility for Julian Assange’s intellectual and physical demise. We do not want his blood on our hands as a society.
Through his publishing work with WikiLeaks Julian Assange propagates society’s progress through learning and increased understanding of our human condition, how the world works, how our public life really functions, fundamentally supporting the pillars of our democratic system. His work gives the opportunity for enlightenment desperately needed for people in our society. His work shines a light where we fail, as a society and these failures have dramatic consequences on people’s lives abroad and at home. This is why the prosecution of Julian Assange is not in the public interest.
Your decision on the case before you will determine what direction our society takes for the future, choose enlightenment not darkness. Generations before us have given their intellectual input, hard work, sweat and often even their lives to reach the state we live now, without the fear of arbitrary violence unleashed upon us as a society at a massive scale, yet following the case of Julian Assange the threat of losing this is evident. Our Intelligence services, our police, our governments, stood silent or were complicit as foreign actors planned the kidnap and murder of someone who lived among us. Julian Assange is one of us. His prosecution is not in the public interest.
The progress this country has achieved is priceless to all of us who live here. Let our progress continue, do not choose our intellectual and moral decline.
How can it be that our society through our institutions can reject the fundamental humanistic values of enlightenment that Julian Assange’s work with WikiLeaks represents? Public opinion agrees, the prosecution of Julian Assange is not in the public interest. No jury would send him to America to face his tormentors.
In times when our society is tested we find out who we trully are, how far we have reached as a society morally. This is such a moment, do us proud. Our society looks to you, the whole world looks to us collectively.
Do us proud and let us cheer at your decision. Don’t make us hang our heads in shame of what we’ve become. The prosecution of Julian Assange is not in the public interest. Release him.

I add my name to this well written letter to the High Court Judges. On every turn I am more ashamed of my country who has abused Julian of his legal and human rights while torturing him in a UK prison. Disgusting, repulsive, repugnant are all those complicit (and there are many) in his persecution, public mobbing, and cruelty. Why do the courts, MPs, prison service and stinking UK Government all ignore the findings of the UN special rapporteur on torture? Because they are complicit in the silencing of yet another truth teller.
Free Assange, Free the truth, Free the World.

Julian Assange should never have been treated in such a manner – it has been justice denied
Re the “human condition”…
The TRUE “human condition” is about 2 pink elephants in the room and has never been on clearer display than with the deliberate global Covid Scam atrocity — study “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” at w w w d o t CovidTruthBeKnown d o t c o m
“Between stimulus and response is your humanity.” — James Corbett, writer and analyst
The case before the court is a tipping point for the British people and its belief that ‘justice must be seen to be done’ without malice or prejudice and its other pillar of democracy’ freedom of the press’. Julian Assange is (like people throughout history) being vilified for exposing injustice, persecution and institutional criminality. It is now our responsibility to show solidarity for Julian and what he represents — the right to know and hold our institutions to account.

Free Julian Assange now !!
Stand up for the truth this time and every time.
Be the change we need.
Drop thé charge
Such a shame and disgrace the way this country treats certain individuals. A true travesty of justice where you are punished for telling the truth. Too many secrets that citizens have a right to know. The criminal injustice system is worldwide and far reaching.
YOU, Julian, are the honourable,respectable face of true humanity and real freedom. We fought for so called freedoms for centuries, that still allude us and possibly always will. We owe it to our forebears to continue the fight. You are the only mainstream publisher never to have published lies and had to concede mistakes and fake news; your reward for integrity has been vilification and persecution. Humanity is a new dark age.
Your Honours, you cannot create an injustice in this case and then hide behind the law. The decision will be in our names, but it is your names that will be remembered.
