Consortium News will be on the ground in Washington and in Westminster on Saturday to bring you coverage of a major event in the movement to save Julian Assange.

Thousands of supporters are expected to gather in Parliament Square at 1 pm London time at the Churchill statue to begin their march around the Houses of Parliament.

Six hours later, a rally will gather on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. in front of the Department of Justice building at noon for a slate of speakers, including Jill Stein, Ben Cohen, Chris Hedges and John Kiriakou. Supporters will then march around the DOJ headquarters. 

It is up to Britain to decide whether to extradite Assange to the U.S., and up to the DOJ to decide whether to continue to prosecute him under the Espionage Act for publishing truthful information revealing U.S. crimes and corruption.

CN is setting up a live stream of both events which you can watch here. We will also record the events to be seen anytime afterward.

Stay tuned!

  1. What a great protest idea. Wish I was in D.C. And hope Assange can hear the protest from Bellmarsh!

    1. It’s Belmarsh, not Bellmarsh, Larry !

      Having said that, I applaud you on the great job you have done on your dad’s website.

      If Keir Starmer takes power here, after Truss has been buried, then we are going to take him to task for his betrayal of Julian. When Starmer was Director of Public Prosecutions, he tried to have him extradited to Sweden – so tell Ray that we are on the case !

  2. Hopefully the protesters will engage in nonviolent resistance blocking the transport of Assange if they attempt to transport him out of England. Block and obstruct every road and halt this grotesque miscarriage of justice!

    1. British government have gtortured me for 25 years, police abuse me in Germany daily, collecting reports on me, professors say princess Charlotte is mine…using icsi. Ivf and Ukraine surrogates to obtain my Reckitts compensation…Vienna embassy cut my money, I have 4 disabilities..eyes 0.27/2.50 sph…..DNA all Royal children…Margarethe removed titles in Denmark…mine too??!!!

  3. Assange has been effectively destroyed.All that is left is his martyrdom, and their been careful to avoid that.
    These so called rulers will continue to sip their Gin and Tonics and show who controls what.
    They can do what they like and have just proved it.Their contempt for the rabble is self evident.
    Not enough people care and this demonstration of support is way to late.Too many People/Jounalists sold out early in the piece.

  4. I will not be content until Biden, Nuland and Pompeo take refuge in the Ukrainian Embassy. Trump belongs in Belmarsh.
