WATCH: CN Live! — ‘Assange & the DC Six’

CN Live! presents an exclusive interview with Australian Senator David Shoebridge, who was part of the six-member delegation from the Australian Parliament that visited Washington to lobby for the release of imprisoned publisher Julian Assange. 

Six members of the Australian parliament have just completed two days in Washington D.C., armed with a bi-partisan agenda and the backing of an entire nation as they tried to convince Congressmen and State and Justice Department officials that the American pursuit of Australian publisher Julian Assange is wrong and must be stopped.

The cross-party delegation lobbied for Assange’s release ahead of Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s state visit to the White House at the end of October, where it is expected he will bring up Assange.

The MPs who traveled to Washington were former National Party leader Barnaby Joyce, Liberal Senator Alex Antic, Labor MP Tony Zappia, Independent MP Dr. Monique Ryan and Greens Senators David Shoebridge and Peter Whish-Wilson.

Senator Shoebridge joins CN Live! from Washington.

    It looked quite positive from Senator Shoebridge’s pov. It would save a lot of trouble yes, if the bloody brits just said no.

      The British Government are subservient to the American Government, whenever the White House says jump our spineless government say, “yes master, how high”. Even our newspapers will print nothing about a man locked away because our American masters have ordered it.
      I am a proud Brit yet disgusted by the actions of our cowardly government . . .

    The US/UK + are complicit in the killing of hundreds of thousands of white people in the Ukraine and millions of not white people with sanctions and kinetically. Do you think that they care about one person?

    I understand that in espionage trials the defendant is not given a fair trial and the evidence he/she can introduce is very limited. To what extent can Assange introduce evidence of the fact that his prosecution is in direct conflict with the first amendment?

    I don’t know who or what…but the US needs to be given two black eyes and one hell of a bloody nose.
