Join this online panel to discuss details of the most egregious breaches of due process and of Julian Assange’s human rights when security firm UC global spied on Julian inside the embassy where he had sought refuge from US persecution.
On the panel:
Max Blumenthal, editor of The Grayzone News,
Stefania Maurizi, investigative journalist, contributor to Il Fatto Social,
Eva Joly, judge and member of the European Parliament,
Fidel Narvaez, former Ecuadorean consul
Organized by Deepa Driver.
Despite having a chronic lung condition and contrary to medical advice given the dangers posed by Covid19, Julian continues to be denied bail and remains in Belmarsh prison where he is in his cell over 23 hours a day and not receiving the medical care he needs.
His extradition trial continues on Sep 7 2020. If convicted, Julian will be extradited to the US and face a potential for 175 years in the horrific conditions of a US supermax prison under special administrative measures.
