Free Saturday?


Jenny Bassett writes:

An “Irish Day of Solidarity with Julian Assange” will see a whole series of activities from Derry to Kerry in support of the imprisoned Australian journalist and publisher. It is organised by Free Assange Ireland in cooperation with other campaign groups and organisations for peace and justice.

Events include a forum at the New Theatre, Temple Bar with a panel that will include MEPs Mick Wallace and Clare Daly.

Lawyers for the US administration will go to the London High Court on October 27th/28th seeking to extradite Assange to the United States to face dubious charges relating to the US Espionage Act. If Julian Assange is extradited he will be sentenced to 175 years in prison. And although never convicted, he is nearly 3 years isolated in Belmarsh High Security Prison, London. What is Assange’s Crime? He revealed US war crimes that US politicians did not want the world to know.

      …is that bit of whataboutery an indication of the Democrats Abroad (Broadsheet Cummann) position on the Assange incarceration?

      Link ? What he did was to hack an info source and then dump the results unredacted, regardless of who would suffer. He’s neither a journalist nor a publisher.

    I respect Clare Daly and Mick Wallace but they seem out of touch or unwilling to speak out against the creeping totalitarian takeover being carried out in the name of Covid “safety”.

    A covid vaccinated-only affair where “Face PPE Masks will be mandatory for audience members” according to the theatre’s website? Doesn’t seem much in keeping with the spirit of dissent inspired by Assange.

    Instead I’ll be spending this Saturday afternoon in solidarity with Julian by attending a peaceful rally against the Irish State’s corrosive abuse of power over the past 19 months and the vilification of non-vaccinated people that is currently being amplified by Irish media.
