Free Julian Assange NZ - Global Protest - 19th June

PRESS RELEASE June 14,2018

Attention Kiwis: please join the urgent global effort to free Julian Assange – Tue 19 June, Wellington

Thousands of Wikileaks supporters worldwide will hold protests at U.K and U.S Embassies on June 19th, 2018 to demand that the Governments of Australia, United States and United Kingdom pardon Assange and free the publisher from any potential indictment or charges in the U.S.

The Protestors and Activists for Human Rights, and Justice, are demanding that Australia, Britain and the U.S. abide by the U.N. ruling to immediately free and compensate Julian Assange. The U.N. has ruled that Assange is being illegally detained.

A series of peaceful vigils will be held in Wellington on 19th June, outside the Australian High Commission, the United States Embassy and the British High Commission. The protestors along with some musicians will be demanding safe passage for Assange to return to Australia to be united with his family.

The vigil will begin at Australian High Commission at midday, with a short march to the United States Embassy at 1.15pm and will conclude at the British High Commission at 2.30pm. page 2
