About this Event

Reporting after the first week of Julian Assange's reconvened extradition trial, veteran journalists John Pilger, Andrew Fowler and Serena Tinari join #FreeTheTruth as we turn the spotlight onto the courage and journalism of Julian Assange. UPDATE: Former British ambassador Craig Murray will also now be joining us.

This event will be held at 11 am London time and is an online event. Please register via this link. All registered attendees will receive a link to join online on the day of the event.

Contextual information about the case:

The trial has huge significance in terms of freedom of the press, whistleblower protection, extraterritorial rights of the US state, the public’s right to know about the crimes govts commit in their name ( including the rights of those tortured, maimed and killed in Iraq and Afghanistan to know the truth about crimes undertaken by occupying forces), political motives of the prosecution + the covering up of war crimes, spying on Assange’s legally privileged conversations, Julian's right to a fair trial and so on as detailed

Public and press access to the court has been extremely limited (pre-Covid) and the post-Covid measures mean that there are likely to be a maximum (TBC) of 4 spaces in the public gallery. A few journalists and perhaps a very small number of observers might get electronic access under strict conditions.

It is important, given the collusion of 5 states in Julian’s continued persecution, and given (pretenses of ) open justice, that the case receives sufficient scrutiny.
