Priti Patel must make the right choice. She must save Free Speech and Press Freedom. She must Free Assange. Priti Patel, Don’t Extradite Assange!
Julian Assange’s defence is providing it’s final arguments to Priti Patel on May 17th. Anytime after this date up to May 31st she has to make a decision whether or not to extradite Julian Assange to the United States.
Assange is charged with Political offences under the so-called Espionage Act merely for receiving and publishing documents that revealed US war crimes. Julian Assange is not charged with hacking into computers. Assange’s charges are only in relation to WikiLeaks publications from 2010-2011. Extraditing Julian Assange would represent a massive threat to Free Speech and Press Freedom globally.
The US-UK extradition treaty clearly states “Extradition shall not be granted if the offense for which extradition is requested is a political offense”
Judge Baraitser previously ruled “it would be oppressive to extradite him to the United States of America”
Please join us on Tuesday, 17th May at 6pm outside the Home Office on 2 Marsham Street, London SW1P 4DF in Protest to Priti Patel.
