UK Supreme Court to rule on Julian Assange extradition - National rallies occurring

The judgment in WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange’s final appeal against extradition to Sweden was handed down by the UK Supreme Court on Wednesday 30 May.

Breaking news: Julian has lost his appeal.

Assange now faces being sent to Sweden by force within 10 days. From Sweden, he could be sent immediately to the US where he faces prosecution for publishing information just like any other journalist.

Rallies on the 31st May: Details on Wikileaks Central

Assange has been under house arrest in the UK for over 530 days, a situation which Attorney-General, Nicola Roxon, has admitted is “extraordinary”. And Foreign Minister Carr has called aspects of the Swedish justice system “an outrage by Australian standards”. But they have done nothing to assist Assange.

Instead, our Prime Minister Julia Gillard labelled Assange a criminal and her government has been quietly passing legislation which will potentially make it easier for Assange to be extradited to the US, should he ever return to Australia. They have denied all knowledge of the sealed indictment against Assange and continue to block FOI requests for information relating to documents relating to potential US extradition, reportedly at the behest of the US government.

Rally locations

There will be a Sydney Rally (and one in each State and Territory) at 5pm on the 31st of May 2012 for Julian Assange.
Place in Sydney: DFAT - Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade; 123 Pitt Street Sydney.
Likewise DFAT in other States/Territories.

Speakers include Stuart Rees (Sydney Peace Foundation etc) (I think), David Shoebridge (Australian Greens), and Irene Doutney Councillor Sydney.

Purpose is too obvious.
With hope we might have a new Australian Senator named Julian Assange.

In Hope and humanity always for Julian Assange.
Thanks
P.B.

Dear fellow Imperialistic Internet Dictators . . .

ID, Internet Dictators think they are part of some global superior technocracy & they can
dictate their ridiculous terms & propoganda to other poor helpless souls, its basically
a joke & has nothing to do with real freedom of speech or humanity, get a real job & help each other
out, be part of a real team & take your time with so called technology, technology can be developed
or technology can be scrapped, its up to you to play your part & don't be scared to get
your hands dirty.

As somebody who came into close contact with Julian Assange

As somebody who came into close contact with Julian Assange many years ago & had a opportunity to read his early rhetoric I am disgusted to see how he is being treated. Julian Assange, myselg & Mike Carlton the original founder of wikipedia & indymedia were all assaulted by the the so called forebearers of the Law.

Julian Assange is in gaol with the truth

There is an upcoming 2nd Rally in Sydney DFAT building again at 5pm, 21st June 2012 for Julian Assange.

I'm wondering about the Fiduciary obligations of all the lawyers involved in what ended up being Julian losing his 2nd appeal, and if those highest obligations were blocked by the fear-mongering and fearful powers that be and others in 'families' with power they appear to use in the most horrifying ways.

The heartwrenching truth is Julian Assange is in gaol with the truth, yet we are all aware of the truth standing onside and outside rain, hail or whatever defending his freedom, always.

Here's to Julian's freedom.
Honesty to the people is of utmost importance and they've targeted the messenger unaware the people are sophisticated enough and aware enough to know the truths from many sources not only Julian Assangle's remarkable contirbutions.
