On the morning of 11 April 2019 Julian Assange was arrested by the London Metropolitan Police inside the Ecuadorean Embassy. Subsequently it was revealed by the US Department of Justice that they would seek his extradition to the United States to face federal charges of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion. https://www.justice.gov/usao-edva/pr/…

Julian Assange has been arbitrarily detained in the UK since 2011. The past six years he spent as a political refugee in Ecuador’s embassy in London, and since the installation of Ecuador’s current president in late 2017 he has lived under increasingly tortuous conditions. The United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention has ruled Mr Assange should be immediately freed and compensated. The Inter-American Court of Human Rights has ruled that the UK must facilitate safe passage for him.

#Unity4J is a global mass movement in solidarity with Julian Assange, created in response to Ecuador’s gagging of the publisher in March 2018. Unity4J has been endorsed by more than fifty high profile activists, journalists, celebrities, academics and former US intelligence officials including Chris Hedges, Jimmy Dore, Ray McGovern, Bill Binney and Daniel Ellsberg.
