This is a peaceful vigil to support award-winning Australian journalist Julian Assange as he begins his battle against the US government on Day 1 of his Extradition trial.
A global wave of events will roll out on Feb 24th in solidarity with Julian Assange, imprisoned without charge in a London maximum security gaol.
If extradited, the US wants to prosecute non-US citizen Assange for treason with 175 years in jail – effectively a death sentence.
Assange is being pursued by the US for exposing US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. Covering up a crime is a crime. Exposing one should not be!
Our gathering will take place from 12-1pm at 59 Junction Street, Nowra (on the corner of Junction & Berry). There will be speakers, music, information, photo opportunities and many like-minded people standing up for truth and justice.
