#Unity4J 03 Vivian Kubrick Speaks In Support of Julian Assange FULL INTERVIEW 3rd Aug 2018

in #unity4j3 years ago

#Unity4J originated from an unplanned but timely response to injustice when Julian Assange’s internet access and visitation rights were abruptly taken away and swiftly grew into a series of high-profile monthly online vigils featuring Chris Hedges, George Galloway, Ray McGovern, Bill Binney and Daniel Ellsberg among many other noteworthy figures.

International media are reporting that WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief may imminently be handed by Ecuador to UK authorities. (Ref: https://disobedientmedia.com/2018/07/breaking-possible-hand-over-of-julian-assange-to-the-uk-may-be-imminent/)

If such an event occurs, it presents an immediate threat to Assange’s human rights, asylum rights, liberty and to press freedoms. It would also be in direct contravention to the rulings of the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention and the Inter-American Court of human rights, both of which have found in his favour.

“Every time we witness an injustice and do not act, we train our character to be passive in its presence and thereby eventually lose all ability to defend ourselves and those we love."
-Julian Assange

The #Unity4J movement has recently expanded, creating a 2,500-strong “non-violent digital army” on a new collaborative public platform, where volunteers interact and advance projects related to the cause, in real time.

That platform is hosted at https://unity4j.com/discord
