War criminals are coming to London to showcase their weapons at ExCel and only a few miles away an innocent man is in jail whose only ‘crime’ was to publish evidence of war crimes committed by those weapons.
DEA (Don’t Extradite Assange Campaign) is collaborating with dED (Demilitarise Education) on 6 September to highlight the opposition of the unjust treatment and prosecution of the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, currently residing in HMP Belmarsh prison.
Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF UK) will start a walk from Stratford Station to ExCel at 11am. The walk will go through Stratford, Plaistow and Canning Town where walkers can hand out leaflets about the campaign and future protests.
From 1pm DEA will show short videos and documentaries about Julian Assange and his work with WikiLeaks followed by some speakers.
The day will conclude with dED’s 7 Myths that Sustain the Global Arms Trade video series and speeches from dED’s Executive Director Jinsella, Anna Stavrianakis, Professor of International Relations at University of Sussex and River, University of Nottingham (UoN) SU Post-Graduate Officer and Demilitarise UoN Activist Organiser.
