Saturday 3 July will be Julian Assange’s 50th birthday. Another year of being held at Belmarsh, a high security prison in the UK.

The US is appealing the decision of the UK court not to approve the extradition of Julian. The legal case is currently at a standstill and there is no clarity on court dates or timeline. Meanwhile Julian remains behind bars. The US government is pursuing Julian Assange for having published disclosed documents that included possible war crimes committed by the US military. This activity should not be punishable and mirrors the work that investigative journalists do regularly.
