The U.S. tour of Julian Assange’s father and brother culminates in a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington on Wednesday, joined by Cornel West and Ryan Grim. Watch the replay.
With the WikiLeaks‘ publisher still in Belmarsh Prison in London awaiting the U.K. High Court decision on whether to accept the U.S. application for appeal of a judge’s order not to extradite Assange, his father and brother, John and Gabriel Shipton, are concluding a three-week tour of the United States.
From Miami to Boston to New York, Chicago, St. Paul, Denver, Oakland, Los Angeles and Washington DC, the tour has called on President Joe Biden to withdraw the application for appeal and drop the Espionage Act and computer intrusion charges against Assange.
