VOTE TO FREE JULIAN ASSANGE – Adelaide Parliament

28, September, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm AEST

South Australia Parliament votes to FREE JULIAN ASSANGE

Wednesday, 28th September @ 12pm

Parliament House, Adelaide

A comprehensive and historic Motion has been put before the South Australian Parliament by Frank Pangallo SA Best MLC. On Wednesday the 28th of September the SA Parliament is going to vote on this motion. Friends and supporters of Julian Assange will be on the steps of the parliament house and flooding the gallery for the vote. Adelaide for Assange in association with Amnesty International SA & NT has arranged some amazing speakers such as:

Rex Patrick – Politician
David McBride – Whistle-blower
Stephen Kenny – Julian Assange’s Lawyer
Frank Pangallo – SA Best MLC
Tammy Franks – The Green MLC

This is a significate vote to acknowledge and defend free speech, free press, and our ‘right to know’ and to call for the immediate release of an Australian citizen, political prisoner, and award-winning publisher Mr. Julian Assange.

‘Enough is Enough’ said the Prime Minister, but where is the progress?

Time is running out for Assange. Anthony Albanese must act now before it is too late.

The US is for the first time using the Espionage Act to prosecute a publisher for revealing war crimes.

The brazen extraterritorial reach and the classification of journalism as espionage will make it unsafe for any journalist or publisher anywhere to reveal US secrets.

This prosecution strikes a blow to the heart of press freedom and follows calls by public figures in the US to have him assassinated during what has been 11 years of persecution the UN has condemned as torture and arbitrary detention.

Assange must never be extradited to the US where he cannot get a fair trial. He does not belong in HMP Belmarsh in the UK, a maximum-security prison. He has been held in solitary confinement-like conditions for over 3 years.
