Don’t Extradite Assange Campaign
Royaume-Uni

25 mai 2022 —

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange receives the “Günter Wallraff Prize” at an event hosted by Deutschlandfunk in Cologne. The prize was awarded to his wife Stella Assange during the 6th Cologne Forum for Journalism Criticism. It honors critical journalism and civil courage on behalf of Günter Wallraff, Germany’s best-known investigative journalist.

Protest in front of Home Office to Free Assange

A protest was held in front of the Home Office in London where Assange’s partner Stella Assange addressed the crowd: “Give the message loud and clear to Priti Patel and the Home Office and the entire British Government, that they should do the right thing, they should block this extradition. It is a political case and it has a political solution. And that is to end this now.“

As Julian Assange’s defence submitted its final arguments to Home Secretary Priti Patel on May 17th, within two weeks she will make a decision whether or not to extradite Julian Assange to the United States.
