As alarm and outrage grows about the seemingly imminent eviction of Julian Assange from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and arrest by U.K. authorities, siginficant voices are endorsing the call out for coordinated international protests at U.S. Embassies, US Consulates and US Political Offices. The website classconscious.org has called for protests at these venues at 6PM the following day after an eviction and for mass rallies at the same venues the following Sunday at 12pm.

“Julian Assange is arguably the most important voice in the world bringing transparency to the world’s disastrously unaccountable power structures, but defending him is vastly more important than the life of one man: protecting Assange is protecting our very right to speak truth and hold power accountable. Failing to collectively rise up and defend an assault on Assange would be deciding to willfully enter into whatever Orwellian dystopia ends up being most profitable and convenient for western plutocrats and the secretive government agencies with which they are allied and waiting for humanity to meet its end via climate chaos or nuclear holocaust. The fight for Julian Assange’s freedom is the fight for our right to bring power to the people where it belongs. The fight for Julian Assange is the fight for humanity itself. This, right here, is where we decide our future.”

“Assange is a journalist. @Wikileaks is no more “biased” than any outlet & has never published falsehood or opinion. Assange is not a criminal. He was never charged with assault. Journalism is not a crime. Support Assange if you believe this to be true.”
