Free Julian Assange!

The Biden administration is seeking to extradite Julian Assange, an award-winning Australian journalist, to face charges of espionage that carry a life sentence and possible death penalty. His only “crime” is the publication of document exposing the war crimes and diplomatic intrigues of US imperialism and its allies.

Since being arrested and dragged from the Ecuadorian embassy in London in April, Assange has been confined to the maximum-security Belmarsh prison. The persecution of Assange is intended to terrorise all journalists and whistleblowers. For ten years, the US, British and Australian governments, with the shameless support of the media and the establishment political parties and trade unions, have presided over a relentless campaign of persecution against the journalist. This has involved fabricated allegations of sexual assault and personal slander, conspiracy and spying, and attempts to silence and isolate all those who defend him.

We urge all defenders of democratic rights and opponents of imperialist war to get involved and join the fight to free Julian Assange!

Ten years after Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange was forced to seek refuge at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and three years after he was arrested and subjected to solitary confinement, the editors and publishers of the New York Times, the Guardian, Le Monde, El País and Der Spiegel have issued an open letter calling on US President Joe Biden to end his prosecution.

Build the Assange defence campaign in the working class!

The Socialist Equality Party (UK) Congress resolution states, “The international working class must take the lead in the fight to free Assange. It is the sole constituency for the defence of democratic rights, and it alone has the power to wrest the WikiLeaks founder from his captors.”
