Supporters of Julian Assange will rally at Copley Square, Boston,  on Monday, April 5 from 11:00 to 12:30. The rally will take place on the side of the Boston Pubic Library along Dartmouth Street. The Assange Defense Committee is calling for all charges against Assange to be dropped, and immediately released from prison.  The founder of WikiLeaks has been in confinement for a decade for exposing war crimes by the United States of America.  And while those who perpetrated the crimes stand free, Mr. Assange remains incarcerated.

April 5 marks the 11th anniversary of the release of the video. Activists from around the world are marking this date by conducting awareness raising activities about this record of a civilian massacre by callous US soldiers shooting from an Apache helicopter in Baghdad in 2007.  It has been almost 2 years since Assange was evicted from his asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.  These will be the main points spoken about at the rally.

 Julian Assange continues to receive the World’s attention.  Pope Francis has weighed in, writing a letter of support that was hand-delivered by the priest at the Belmarsh Prison.  A group of prominent Australian legislators has also issued a  call for Assange to be freed.

Nothing less than the future of a free press rests on a the prevention of a successful, immoral prosecution of Assange.
