#Unity4J Online Vigil in support of Julian Assange
In a world of divide and conquer, unity is the ultimate act of resistance. Friends of publisher Julian Assange are bringing together a diverse group of high-profile supporters of all political stripes in this online vigil event to advocate for Julian's freedom and protection.
As is being widely reported, WikiLeaks’ Editor-In-Chief Julian Assange has had his human rights of freedom of association and to freely communicate restricted at the Ecuadorean Embassy, in which he is arbitrarily detained. This includes the ability for him to receive visitors, and all phone signals are being electronically jammed.
There have also been countless reports of an imminent threat to his liberty in recent weeks, suggesting he is in danger of being expelled from the embassy and extradited to the United States to face espionage charges (which can invoke the death penalty). His friends, supporters and loved ones find this unacceptable and are again coming together to demand Julian's access to them be restored immediately, his political asylum respected and his human rights restored.
We are calling upon members of the public in the UK to undertake solidarity actions at the Ecuadorian Embassy (3 Hans Crescent, opposite Harrods. Nearest tube station: Knightsbridge) to show their support for Julian. Everyone unable to attend the Embassy in person is encouraged to support these online events to help raise awareness about Julian's situation.
