Defending Rights & Dissent on Jan 24, 2022

On Monday January 24, the UK High Court will decide whether WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange can appeal to the UK Supreme Court its decision to grant his extradition. If the UK High Court rules Assange cannot appeal, the UK Home Secretary will decide whether to grant or deny the US’s extradition decision.

Monday’s pivotal decision could be one of the last chances to stop Assange’s appeal. Whatever the outcome, Defending Rights & Dissent will host a live reaction at noon eastern with journalist Kevin Gosztola and Policy Director Chip Gibbons.

Julian Assange Can Appeal Extradition; Stella Moris Blasts “Politically Motivated Prosecution”

Democracy Now! on Jan 24, 2022

A British judge has ruled that political dissident and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can appeal his extradition to the United States. The ruling dealt a major blow to the Biden administration’s efforts to put Assange on trial for espionage charges. Assange has spent over 1,000 days locked up in the Belmarsh high-security prison in London, where he recently suffered a mini-stroke. The “politically driven” prosecution of Assange is punishing “a publisher for doing his work, for having published evidence of U.S. crimes,” says Stella Moris, Assange’s fiancée. “For every win that we get, Julian’s situation doesn’t change. And this is punishment through process.” Transcript
