Thousands of People to Form Human Chain Around U.K. Parliament to Demand Freedom for Assange

By Elijah Cohen

Over 3,500 people have signed up to form a human chain around British Parliament on Saturday in support of Julian Assange.

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has now spent more than three years in London’s HM Prison Belmarsh maximum security prison while fighting extradition to the United States.

He is awaiting word on whether he can proceed with his legal fight.

On Saturday, October 8, 2022 at 1 pm, thousands of supporters will join hands in London to create a Free Assange Human Chain around British Parliament.

As part of a global campaign for Julian’s release, over a dozen international actions have been planned in solidarity, with U.S.-based supporters holding a rally at the Department of Justice in Washington, DC featuring several high-profile speakers.

Actions are also planned for Melbourne, Denver, San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Ottawa, and Tulsa with more expected to be announced.

The D.C. protesters will be calling on Attorney General Merrick Garland to drop the charges against Julian Assange while also denouncing the U.S. government’s campaign against Assange as supporters around the world demand Hands Off Assange!

The legal matter is in a crucial phase according to John Rees, who is helping to organize the event.

According to Bloomberg, Rees told the PA news agency: “We need to redouble our efforts to persuade the UK Parliament to intervene and halt Julian’s extradition.”

The demand for U.S. President Joe Biden to abandon Assange’s extradition case is being voiced by an increasing number of human rights groups, journalist organizations, legislators, politicians, and other campaigners.

On Saturday, October 1, Assange supporters held a tweet storm across Twitter and other social media platforms drawing attention to Assange’s situation and the upcoming protests.
