Example Letter For Letter Campaign for Chelsea Manning To Judge Anthony Trenga

Your honor,

It has come to my attention that you have not only violated the Constitution by jailing Chelsea Manning in order to try to force her to testify against Assange but you have also put in place fines for her incarceration that are excessive.

By incarcerating Chelsea, after she already served and provided her evidence in her first trial, it is as though you are intending to try her again. Any evidence you need would be provided in the previous trial. To me, this looks like a case of double jeopardy.

Secondly, according to the 8th amendment:

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”

The excessive fines you have imposed are very cruel punishment. She cannot afford these fines and she has already lost what little she had. I implore you to drop these fines. Is it not hard enough that she is being punished for standing up for principles and her rights as an American citizen? Is it not enough that while incarcerated for 7 years she was tortured? This appears to be about vengeance, nit upholding the law.

Do what you have vowed to do and uphold the law and the Constitution.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Address to contact Judge Anthony Trenga

John Pilger Interviewed by RT Speaks of Julian Assange’s Deteriorating Health

‘Julian Assange’s condition is…very dangerous, he’d lost more weight…he’s in a single cell, he told me that I see people walking by and I’d like to talk to them but I can’t’

“Category A prisoners,murderers, and others who have committed serious crimes are allowed to fraternize. Julian is not allowed to fraternize. He’s not even allowed to telephone his American lawyers and he’s facing extradition to the U.S. He is not allowed to prepare a defense.”

-John Pilger on Assange’s condition following his visit

See interview here.

Please keep in mind, Julian is serving a term in the U.K. for breaching bail which is not a serious Category A crime, yet his rights have been removed and they placed him in Belmarsh. Belmarsh is called “Britain’s Gitmo.” He is being treated worse than the worst criminals in there. It took them 2 months to let him see an optician and then one of the lenses was bad.

The U.K. judicial system and prison system is just as corrupt as the United States’. If Julian is left in prison for much longer, we will lose him, end of story.

We will lose this generation’s source of truth and we will lose our right to know. We will lose a hero. Do you really want his blood on your hands?

The Story of Prince Charming Gone Sour

Every little girl dreams of their Prince. Unfortunately, the virgin girls introduced to Prince Andrew weren’t getting what they expected. They were probably even excited! They got to meet a prince and if they were good and did what they were told they would be rewarded. Prince Charming just turned into a grim horror story instead of a fairytale.

Prince Andrew’s connection to Epstein may be why Epstein is dead, we will never know. However, we do know the Crown Royals want his name struck from the files on Epstein. We also know there are some permanently damaged girls out there whose fairytale went very sour.

Campaign to Write to Judge Arbuthnot Who Presides Over the U.K. Extradition of Assange

I am starting a writing campaign to flood Judge Emma Arbuthnot with letters why Assange should not be extradited. Below are a few examples of why he shouldn’t:

  • Recently the U.S. DOJ put back in place the death penalty which makes Assange’s extradition against U.K. law. As seen on wikipedia here. Under section 94 of theExtradition Act 2003, it is unlawful for an extradition of an individual to take place if the individual is accused of a capital crime, unless the Home Secretary has received assurances that the death penalty would not be applied in that case.
  • Extradition cannot be politically based. According to Just Security seen here:

Another defense available to Assange—and perhaps his most formidable one—will be to assert that he is being charged with a political offense. If that assertion is deemed correct, it could block his extradition, because, like many extradition agreements, the US-UK treaty forbids any transfer based on such charges. The categorical prohibition under Article 4 of the treaty could not be clearer: “Extradition shall not be granted if the offense for which extradition is requested is a political offense.”

But what is a political offense? Transgressions such as espionage, sedition, and treason are what are known as “pure” political offenses, including under UK law—that is to say, activities that directly target the state but that would not necessarily be criminal in other contexts. A related category, known as “relative” political offenses, covers common crimes that are incidental to purely political activities. Because various jurisdictions have interpreted the expansiveness of this political exception differently over time, a universal definition of a relative political offense is difficult to articulate, but the basic principle of the political exception in extradition has remained unchanged since its origins in the late nineteenth century. It states, in brief, that nations should not return political opponents to face prosecution for challenging the states that would sit in judgement of them.

  • A judge should take into consideration the reasons he sought asylum. Fear of torture and possible death.
  • His health is quickly deteriorating. He has no access to the internet or library to prepare a defense.

Assange’s Health is Quickly Deteriorating

In an interview yesterday with John Shipton (JulianAssange’s father) on @3CR (link to program here) reiterated the chilling message from @johnpilger about Assange’s failing health and urgency required by the Australian government to aid in his freedom. Shipton said Julian’s younger brother had been able to visit him in Belmarsh Prison and found Assange to be “emaciated, suffering anxiety and his well-being declining rapidly.”

Mr. Shipton also stated that the prison is purposely scheduling medical appts to shorten loved ones visits.

This breaks my heart but is an even bigger call to action for us to win this. We must daily call our elected officials, President Trump, the DOJ, Scott Morrison and Boris Johnson. Clog their mail with constant letters. Fill their voicemails. Send them hundreds of postcards demanding Assange’s freedom.

We must fight to free him and do it now before he dies in prison. Please help save this man! Fight!

How Concern Trolls Distract From the Message To Free Assange

I see it all the time. People spreading the truth about Assange only to have “concern” trolls distract by asking for proof of life, or calling a letter from Assange fake, or saying something to the effect of, “I am so worried about Assange, is he really alive?” Folks, these people may be legitimate supporters who unknowingly are distracting or they may simply do it on purpose. Regardless, ignore them. Don’t even comment. Many will simply take up your time and are a waste of your breath.

Christine Assange once said, “We need Wikileaks warriors, not worriers.” She said this with good reason. Worrying doesn’t free her son, action does. We can pray for him but Jesus himself called for action from his followers. “To get a job done, you must apply your abilities. “ This is a quote from an old friend, but it is a fact.

Worrying by itself ends up being complacency.

The tragedy of life is often not in our failure, but rather in our complacency; not in our doing too much, but rather in our doing too little; not in our living above our ability, but rather in our living below our capacities. ~Benjamin Mays

Here is a tweet from his mother on concern trolls:

If you do respond, only respond with facts and then ignore. Concern trolls hurt the movement. We don’t have time to spend it educating the same people repeatedly. Here is how Christine recommends showing your support on social media.

How to tweet to raise public support for Julian Assange

1) Assume others have no prior accurate info on J

2) Make tweet the info message! (Many do not read
links)

3) Use words ALL understand

4) Space words for easy reading

5) Leave reader with positive impression of J

(Note: Sorry my screenshot would not allow me to cover #5. )

Amazing Revelations From Australian Journalist Mark Davis on Wikileaks: MSM Completely Ignores

In an “explosive article by Australian Journalist Mark Davis he shares the fact that both the Guardian and the New York Times set up Wikileaks and Assange to take the fallout from the Afghan files. Watch the video here on CNLive.

On Friday, the World Socialist Web Site reported what should have been front page news across the globe: revelations that Assange was “set up” by his erstwhile “media partners” at the New York Times and Guardian over publication of the Afghan War Logs in 2010.

The source of these revelations is award-winning Australian journalist Mark Davis.

Davis was with Assange at the Guardian’s “bunker” in the lead-up to publication of the Afghan War Logs in July 2010. Last week he spoke in Australia at an event hosted by Politics in the Pub.

Davis’s eyewitness account includes the following:

The New York Times and Guardian claimed to be “media partners” with Assange, promising simultaneous publication, but later pressured him to publish the Afghan War Logs first, effectively “pushing Julian out to walk the plank”.

WikiLeaks was unable to publish first, due to technical issues, but the New York Times deliberately lied in its coverage, saying that WikiLeaks had already published. This duplicitous claim was made to shield themselves from any legal fallout. WikiLeaks did not publish until two days later.

The Guardian provided a technical team to transform the raw data from the Afghan War Logs into a searchable database on the WikiLeaks website. In other words, they were the primary publishers, along with the New York Times.

The Guardian and New York Times later smeared Assange as a “hacker”, but in 2010 “they were in awe of him” and “treated him as an equal”.

Senior Guardian journalist Nick Davies later described Assange’s “cavalier attitude to life”. But Davis recalled the unserious attitude of senior Guardian journalists in the “bunker”, concluding, “They had disdain for the impact of this material.”

In their rush for a scoop (and not wishing to disrupt their own weekend plans), the Guardian, New York Times and Der Spiegel refused to redact names from the Afghan War Logs. Assange singlehandedly redacted 10,000 names prior to publication. This blows out of the water the relentless smears that he “endangered lives”.

Davis’s testimony confirms the unprecedented scope of the media and state vendetta against Assange. He faces US extradition under the Espionage Act for exposing war crimes, mass surveillance and US diplomatic intrigue across the globe.

If Assange is extradited and tried, it is only right that the New York Times and the Guardian staff be arrested as well. In fact, any media organization that published revelations from the Wikileaks Afghan files and Iraq War must be prosecuted under the Espionage Act. This is simply a war on the First Amendment by the DOJ headed by William Barr to be able to arrest any journalist worldwide who publishes facts about the behavior of the U.S. military. It must be stopped.

A Letter From Julian Assange To A Supporter

In a letter written to a supporter Julian Assange appears to be giving suggestions on where supporters should protest. From people4assange on Twitter they have nicely made the letter easier to read seen below.

Transcript: Thank you for fighting to save my life
Please also look into similar protest actions at those sites with organisations that can be influenced and which are not used to protest(s) or have difficulty defending against it ideologically. Possible examples: Le Monde, RSF Liberation (RSF do more defend their writer and “source”, BBC France, ARTE, ??
Australian embassy (do more) or consulate, UK Chamber of commerce, French ?? (or other elite gathering holes.) In some cases eg perhaps RSF if they have been helpful it may make more sense to have the protest ‘drop in’ on the way somewhere else rather than create feelings of adversary, but protests are very powerful for an office not used to them, even if everyone pretends otherwise. I know having been in one. Please adapt the above to local conditions. I am very isolated and not sure of the state of play, but you get the idea; push on that which will move, not simply that which opposes. Said another way, find weak links in the chain that binds me.
JPA

There is a lot to be said for this simple letter from Assange. He believes we can free him.

Ariyana Love also received a letter from Assange seen below:

It states the following:

“It is people like you, great and small, fighting to save my life that keeps me going. We can win this!”

We need to keep sending him uplifting letters even if he doesn’t write back. Here are some instructions and his address to write him.

Please send short personal letters and include a stamped self-addressed return envelope. You may include photos or drawings (regular paper). No postcards, sensitive material or loose stamps. You can purchase stamps from the U.K. at this link. shop.royalmail.com

Also, you cannot send loose stamps, they must be placed on a return envelope with your address.

Do Not Believe The Lie Being Spread That Julian Assange is Dead

We’ve heard this story over and over since 2016, even after proof of life was given repeatedly (including videos, him on the balcony and finally his arrest) it has continued. No matter who visits him or states his current condition, there is always someone babbling on as though they are some kind of insider and quoting unconfirmed reports or close sources to Wikileaks. Too many of these false reports have circulated.Here is a prime example.tweet seen hereNo you can’t see Assange right now. He’s in a high security prison. He is sending letters to supporters like this one (see below), he is still trying to communicate via those who write to him.If that is not proof enough, John Pilger recently spoke of his visit to Julian as seen here:Stop with the proof of life garbage and help us free him. Spreading the conspiracy theories about him undermines his support. As Christine Assange once said, “We need Wikileaks warriors, nit worriers.”

A Reminder

Therefore the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth.
For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds.”
Hab 1:4

I read this powerful verse and our generation comes to mind, especially in the case of Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning. While they used the truth to expose the unjust, the establishment turned on them for sharing the truth with the people. Justice was not served but severely perverted. The criminals walk free while the truthtellers are jailed. This makes our laws powerless. It makes truth and justice a lark.

Our judicial system has ben corrupted, our politicians have become liars and murderers and our laws the biggest joke of them all. How can we sit peacefully as they ignore what is right and allow justice to be destroyed? For truly, what they are doing to Assange and Manning is perverse and barbaric.

It truly hurts my very soul to watch this atrocity in action. They are bankrupting one to make an example of her and slowly martyring the other. Our system is broken. Our governments tyrranical and the population so brainwashed by propaganda it is hard to wake them up. However, we must break through their fog and bring them to the light of truth. It is up to us to awaken them and stop their complacency. It is our duty. The catastrophic results from the case are too important to simply ignore. The future depends on it. Our lives depend on real justice being demanded by the people.
