Please distribute as you find appropriate.
Supporters of Julian Assange will rally at Park Street Station on the
Boston Common on Monday, October 11 from 4 to 5:30. We are very concerned
about the final extradition hearing that will happen in London on October
27 and 28. At the rally, we will speak out demanding that the government
drop their charges on Assange, collect signatures on our petition to our MA
senators and encourage people to write letters to Merrick Garland and sign
ones that we have written with that same message. If the UK extradites
Assange, he will face a trial under the Espionage Act and could receive 175
years for the crime of disclosing truthful information about US war crimes.
This will be our last stand-out rally before the hearing at the end of the
month. On Monday, October 25 Boston Area Assange Defense and co-sponsors,
MA Peace Action and Community Church of Boston are organizing a forum on
freedom of the press and the Assange case. Details soon to follow! Hope to
see you at both events!
