Sydney extradition protest at U.S. consulate

Posted on December 3, 2011


Details of another protest planned for Tuesday, December 6, if London’s High Court denies Julian Assange’s extradition appeal:

“IF ASSANGE LOSES HIS CASE AND FACES EXTRADITION TO SWEDEN join us on Tuesday December 6, 5:30pm at the US consulate to raise our voices to say:
– Stop the political persecution of Julian Assange
– Stop attacks on Wikileaks
– Free Bradley Manning!

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will go to court in London on Monday December 5 to fight for leave to appeal his extradition to Sweden. If he loses, he will face quick extradition to Sweden. It is widely acknowledged this will mean his extradition to the US, where he will face imprisonment and punishment, not for assault, but for Wikileaks’ mass release of US diplomatic cables.

Assange has not been charged with a crime in any country. The attempts to secure his extradition are politically motivated, and designed to deliver him into the hands of those in the US elite who were exposed through the Wikileaks cables.

Bradley Manning, accused of delivering the diplomatic cables to Wikileaks, has been kept in naked solitary confinement in a US prison.

Those who were incriminated via the diplomatic cables, which revealed systemic murder of civilians in Iraq, support for corrupt forces inside Afghanistan, the US spying on the UN, the corruption of former Tunisian dictator Ben Ali, among many many other things, have faced no sanction.

This protest has been organised by Amy and Linda, who were active in organising protests through the Wikileaks Support Coalition Sydney earlier in the year. Contact Amy on 0430554263 for more info or media.”

The U.S. Consulate is at MLC Centre, Level 59, 19-29 Martin Place, Sydney, Australia 2000.
