Free Julian Assange!

The Biden administration is seeking to extradite Julian Assange, an award-winning Australian journalist, to face charges of espionage that carry a life sentence and possible death penalty. His only “crime” is the publication of document exposing the war crimes and diplomatic intrigues of US imperialism and its allies.

Since being arrested and dragged from the Ecuadorian embassy in London in April 2019, Assange has been confined to the maximum-security Belmarsh prison. The persecution of Assange is intended to terrorise all journalists and whistleblowers. For over a decade, the US, British and Australian governments, with the shameless support of the media and the establishment political parties and trade unions, have presided over a relentless campaign of persecution against the journalist. This has involved fabricated allegations of sexual assault and personal slander, conspiracy and spying, and attempts to silence and isolate all those who defend him.

We urge all defenders of democratic rights and opponents of imperialist war to get involved and join the fight to free Julian Assange!

The Assange case and the working class

The forces arrayed against Assange are powerful. But there is another, even more formidable force which has yet to have its say—the British, American and international working class.
