Dear Friends in the struggle to Free Assange!
We have a special appeal:
JADC is hoping to organise screenings across the UK for the documentary film about the Trial of Julian Assange which is called ‘Hacking Justice: Julian Assange’. The award-winning documentary has been made by the documentary filmmaker Clara Lopez Rubio. If you run an independent cinema or have contacts with your local independent cinema (particularly programmers) please let us know by contacting the JADC Committe at firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be particularly helpful to have the name of the programmer and the contact details for the cinema. Many thanks.
