At this crucial moment in the fight for Julian Assange's freedom, we are partnering with the Progressive International to bring the Belmarsh Tribunal to London on October 22.
Just a few days before the extradition hearing in Julian's case (October 27 - 28) and inspired by the Russell-Sartre Tribunal that put the US government's war crimes in Vietnam on trial, we are bringing leading lawyers, politicians and journalists to put the US government on trial for its crimes in the 21st century — from atrocities in Iraq, to torture in Guantánamo Bay, and the country’s huge surveillance program.
We are gathering in order to reveal the crimes committed against Julian Assange, and demand his immediate release.
Members of the Belmarsh Tribunal, named after the prison where Assange has been imprisoned for more than two years, include Daniel Ellsberg, Yanis Varoufakis, Rafael Correa, Stefania Maurizi, Renata Ávila, Jeremy Corbyn, Ken Loach, Tariq Ali, Selay Ghaffar and many others.
