Emergency Actions to Support Julian Assange if he is Extradited to the United States
As Julian Assange’s options to appeal the decision to extradite him to the United States are being exhausted, he could be extradited as early as the beginning of October. We must be prepared to support him and fight for his release in the United States.
It is time to start planning now in your organization or community for emergency actions as soon as we become aware that he is being extradited (if there is a warning) or as soon as he is on his way (if it happens without warning).
If there is a warning, all focus will be on the British Embassy to protest their extradition. You can join the rally in Washington DC or hold an action locally in a highly visible place.
If Julian is transported to the United States without warning, we will protest at the Department of Justice in Washington, DC and then move to the Federal Courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia. Local solidarity actions could take place at Federal Courthouses or highly trafficked areas.
Please sign onto the pledge below to take emergency action as an individual or organization and we will keep you informed plus provide an action toolkit to you.
If Julian Assange is extradited to the United States, I/my organization will join the emergency actions across the nation to show support for Assange and to demand that the Biden administration drop the charges. Publishing true information is the right of all journalists and media outlets. Access to information is the right of all people. #FreeAssange #PressFreedom
