Letter to Court Magistrate Vanessa Baraitser Regarding the Extradition and Torture of Julian Assange

Julian Assange is in great jeopardy and it appears that you may be the only one who can help him. He is being threatened by extradition to the U.S. with the possibility of the death penalty or life in prison under the antiquated Espionage Act of 1917. The threat of torture and mistreatment is very real. He does not stand a chance of getting any justice in the U.S. court systems. It is apparent that you intend to play the game the U.S. has set out and there will be no justice in your court either. Do you really want to be remembered as the judge who sentenced Assange to death?

Nils Melszer, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on torture, has stated his continued isolation in Belmarsh may end with his death. The silent assassination of the greatest journalist of our time is being watched by the world and so far, you have done nothing but furthered that which is destroying this man.

Julian Assange is a publisher, a journalist and a hero. By allowing the prosecution against Assange to continue, it is a direct violation of your oath to seek and find justice in this case.

The relentless attacks on Assange and Wikileaks threatens the future of a free press that is the bulwark of democracy. It is a threat to our very freedom.

Assange was held without charge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for nearly 7 years without fresh air, sunlight, proper exercise or proper medical care against 2 UN rulings to release him. All the while, not a shred of evidence has ever been found that he has done anything but publish the truth. He is relentlessly attacked by those who fear the truth will put them in jeopardy of prosecution themselves. This case is a political disgrace to scare other would be truthtellers from publishing war crimes around the world.it is an example of a superpower seeking to destroy our human rights as individuals and exert its power over other states.

This is an injustice not just against this man, but all humanity. It sets a legal precedent to prosecute any journalist who exposes truth. It also is against the human rights of political refugees who seek protection. It sets an example of how criminals get away with corruption and whistleblowers get prosecuted. It is an act of injustice by the United States against all of us.

We urge you to take action. By dropping this case, and ending the possibility of extradition, you can end this travesty of justice.

Signed,

Conspiracy Theories, Unifying and Julian Assange

Intelligence agencies keep things secret because they often violate the rule of law or of good behavior.

-Julian Assange

“There is unity in the oppression. There must be absolute unity and dtermination, in the response…” – Julian Assange

Remember how Assange being extradited to the U.S. to face charges under the Espionage Act was just a conspiracy theory that existed in Assange’s head? Well it’s not a conspiracy theory anymore. It’s very real and he faces 175 years in prison or worse the death penalty.

Do you remember the real conspiracy theory that Trump was going to save Assange? Folks, it’s a crazed idea from an anonymous on a hacker channel. Nothing more, unfortunately, than a false hope. If Assange’s life is to be saved, it must be done by us. We must pressure our elected leaders until they relent and understand.

Our actions can free Assange if we fight hard enough. Solitary Confinement since April 11th is slowly destroying this great mind leaving him dazed and confused. The torture he has endured and continues to survive through is killing him slowly. We must act now!

No more conspiracy theories about his lawyers, or Trump saving him or even discussing the possibility of mind altering drugs. The time of conspiracy theory discussions is over. It is time for action!

The arguments and division must end and we need to unite against the superpower seeking to destroy Assange. We cannot let the U.S. have him. I can’t do it alone nor can you. We must free him, together!!!

The division amongst his supporters is caused by dissidents and government operatives who mean to divide and conquer. They want Assange silenced forever. They want him dead for publishing secrets that the public needed to know. Every time we choose hate over love, we give them more power to destroy!

Please, hear his cries for help!!!!

Put your differences aside and fight together to Free Julian! Thank you!
