    This is great news….at first glance. And I know it is great news…..but does it not also simply prolong his captivity with no actual guarantee of anything changing once the appeal is heard? Just let the man free, for gods sake!!! Enough.

      Is what the Israeli regime is doing in Palestine “for gods sake”?

    This is a group of New Zealanders doing a spontaneous celebratory Haka. A haka often breaks out on important occasions – not just before an All Black match. The man wearing a sign around his neck is Matt O Branain who was one of our very small Auckland Assange protest group (our media banned news of Assange for about a decade so few NZers knew about the situation). Matt left NZ for London about two years ago to campaign for Assange’s freedom and has been continuously protesting his jailing in the UK and Europe ever since by wearing that sign daily and taking part in demonstrations. The last Auckland protest he organised before he left was “Anything To Say” – I remember taking a chair into the city on a bus! I want to acknowledge Matt’s outstanding dedication to securing Julian’s freedom.
