Australia’s Legislature Votes to Release Julian Assange from Prison and Bring Him Home to Australia

Australia votes to set Julian Assange free. 

Julian Assange is imprisoned because he released “classified” information showing wrongdoing of the US government.

Assange’s prosecution set a chilling precedent for journalists about their ability to hold governments to account and to tell the truth without facing imprisonment and without facing a risk to their own lives.

Bandt said:

His appeal fell on deaf ears – it remained AUKUS regardless of any cost.

For Assange, the situation is still perilous. He remains incarcerated in HM Prison Belmarsh in the UK, where he has spent the last five years, locked down for 23 hours each day in a three-metre by two-metre cell, unconvicted of any charges, an innocent man in a living hell, like Dylan’s ‘Hurricane‘. Like Nelson Mandela, he walks his long walk to freedom around that tiny cell every day.

Assange’s work included his release of emails from the Democrats and Hillary Clinton that showed massive crimes being committed by the Democrat Party and Clinton.

In December Tucker Carlson visited Julian Assange in prison.

Yesterday, Australia gave Assange a Valentine’s Day gift.

In a historic vote, parliamentarians have shown unprecedented support for the return home of imprisoned journalist Julian Assange. Dr John Jiggens reports.

WEDNESDAY 14 FEBRUARY turned out to be an unanticipated Happy Valentine’s Day for Julian Assange supporters. The Australian House of Representatives passed a motion introduced by Tasmanian Independent Andrew Wilkie, on behalf of the Parliamentary Friends of Julian Assange, urging the U.S. and the UK to bring their prosecution of the WikiLeaks founder to a close and allow him to return to his family and home in Australia.

The vote was 86 for Yes (ALP, Greens and Independents) and 42 for No (mostly Liberal and National).

Set him free.  No journalist should be imprisoned for sharing the truth.
