5 ways you can help Julian Assange and WikiLeaks: UK flyer

Here's a very handy flyer with Assange & WikiLeaks support ideas specific to the UK. Thanks for the editing from a UK supporter, based upon the original Australian flyer.

The flyer is designed as a double sided A5 leaflet. You can download the files here or email me to be sent print-ready pdfs.

Contact politicians, organise with fellow supporters, help keep WikiLeaks strong and... spread the word!

Both sides: A5 flyer: 5 ways to help Julian Assange & WikiLeaks

Front: A5 flyer: 5 ways to help Julian Assange & WikiLeaks

Back: A5 flyer: 5 ways to help Julian Assange & WikiLeaks

 

Here's the text for the flyer. You'll also find Australian versions of this flyer here.

 

5 ways you can help Julian Assange and WikiLeaks

 

1. Contact the British government

Write to the UK government asking them to:
  • adhere to international law and guarantee Assange's safe passage to Ecuador;
  • respect the sovereignty of the Ecuador Embassy in London;
  • urge the Swedish prosecutors to accept Ecuador’s invitation to interview Assange about the sexual assault allegations in the embassy; and
  • recognise the evidence that a grand jury has been set up in the US for the purpose of indicting Assange for his work with WikiLeaks, and that he could face the death penalty if sent to trial.

2. Contact Australian High Commissioner in London:

Tell him the Australian government should:
  • act as third party in negotiations for Assange’s safe passage from the UK to Ecuador;
  • seek written guarantees from the UK and Sweden that neither country will agree to extradite Assange to the US;
  • state publicly that Assange is a journalist and should not be prosecuted by any state for his work with WikiLeaks;
  • guarantee that if Assange returns to Australia he will not be extradited from here to the US; and
  • PM Gillard should retract her prejudicial remarks about Assange as per the Senate resolution calling on her to do so.

4. Keep WikiLeaks strong

WikiLeaks is a not-for-profit media organisation entirely supported by donations from the public. WikiLeaks’ aim is simple: justice through transparency. In publishing evidence of war crimes and corruption on a global scale, through their website www.wikileaks.org, the organisation has given us the information we need to hold governments to account. WikiLeaks’ releases also give us a broader understanding of how power is exercised in our name, and thereby the means we need to work towards a just society for all.

Please help WikiLeaks continue its vital work: visit shop.wikileaks.org/donate
