Feb 6/7 - INTERNATIONAL CALLOUT - "Free Manning! Free Assange! Free Speech!"

category international | anti-war / imperialism | press release author Tuesday February 01, 2011 21:10author by "Free Manning! Free Assange! Free Speech!" Report this post to the editors

Feb 6/7 - INTERNATIONAL CALLOUT - "Free Manning! Free Assange! Free Speech! Close Guantanamo!" - Solidarity Vigils at U.S., British, Australian embassies/consultes/high commissions & sites of significance in the "War of Terror"

This CALLOUT comes from
Brisbane/ Australia

If you, or your group, commit to such a vigil on Sunday Feb 6th. or Monday Feb 7th. - the eve or opening day of the Julian Assange extradition hearing at Woolwich Court/ attached to the Category A Belmarsh Prison (London) - please make contact with us releasejulianassange at

We believe that this extraditon hearing is the first move to put Julian Assange in the space where Bradey Manning presently occupies - out of reach, buried alive in a U.S. gulag! The U.S. 8th amendment- unlike European Article 3 - does not guarantee "assocation" for the prisoner.
Gareth Peirce "The Case Against Extradition"

There are for example 28 British embassies/ consulates in the United States

A crew will be at the Minneapolis British consulate and the consulate in Brisbane, while we will be outside Woolwich Court/Belmarsh Prison (London). We encourage you to go to an Australian, Brtitish or U.S. embassy, consulate or high commission on the eve (Sunday Feb 6th.), or the opening day of (Monday Feb 7th.) of the Julian Assange extradition hearing.

If you are not near an embassy or consulate we invite you to go to a significant site in your locale in relation to this ongoing "War of Terror" now in its 10th. year or go to a place in your local community that is significant in the history of nonviolent struggle against war and preparations for war!

If you can't find a place (try google!) contact us and we will help you!

Amazing what bodies surface when one goes off to conftont the rich and powerful. This form folks organsing the vigil in Minneapolis/ USA......


Thought you might be interested in this little side note. The UK Honorary Consul here in Minneapolis, to whom we will be delivering our letter in support of WikiLeaks and Assange, is a fellow named Bill McGrann. In 1989, he and three of his current partners were part of a group that left their prior law firm because it represented the government of El Salvador. This was right after the killling of the six priests and their two housekeepers. The Honorary Consul truly is an honorable man.

Law Firm Tied to Salvador Is Dropped by Minneapolis
Published: December 16, 1989

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 15 — The City Council voted today to dismiss a law firm because it lobbies for President Alfredo Cristiani of El Salvador, a day after four partners and an associate lawyer resigned from the firm for the same reason.
''After individual and collective soul-searching, we decided that this was the best thing to do,'' said Douglas Franzen, one of the partners who resigned from O'Connor & Hannan on Thursday.
The Council voted, 10 to 2, to drop the law firm effective Jan. 15, ending a $500,000-a-year legal contract. After the slaying of six Jesuit priests in El Salvador last month, a group of protesters organized under the banner of the O'Connor & Hannan Campaign persuaded a majority of the Council to support a resolution co-sponsored by two Council members, Carol Johnson and Brian Coyle.
The other partners who quit are Douglas Carnival, Andrew Shea and William McGrann, whose office in Washington represents the Salvadoran leader. The associate lawyer who quit is Kathleen Lamb.
