Assange: Truth on trial

Support us and go ad-free

Joseph Corré talks about the importance of supporting Julian Assange and preventing his extradition to the United States.

Joe, and his mother Vivienne Westwood, will be holding a protest in support of Assange outside the Old Bailey in London at 8:15am on Tuesday 21 July.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.

    1. If ever you need evidence of just how low we have become in representing true democratic values and how much we are just lap dogs to the USA, then Julian Assange and the way he is being treated should be your first port of call.

      I have followed his pre trial and all the other legal procedures with great interest and paid attention to what and how the legal process looks like from the outside. I have no doubt at all having read transcripts and documents from these proceedings, that Julian stands absolutely no chance whatsoever of being acquitted, and for one simple reason which is the Yankee invaders are instructing and ordering what the outcome will be. Again having spent many hours reading and watching everything I can get on the trial and Julian, it is absolutely clear to me that if he were to get a fair extradition hearing he would be released as a free man. Instead he is subjected to being held in this country’s most secure prison and is strip searched regularly even on his way to the court.

      Our MSM is complicit in his “torture” (UN special envoy’s word not mine) and are a bloody disgrace to journalism. The have become cut and paste specialists and have lost the art of investigative journalism. The BBC in particular might as well just publish and quote the daily Tory briefings and admit doing so because that’s exactly what they appear to be doing.

      1. It’s interesting. I follow Julian’s Case as much as you have, and have the same interest that you do in the case, but unfortunately we are on opposite sides here. Julian has committed more than enough Espionage to be in jail for the rest of his life. But I will be reasonable and just expect 10 to 20 years in an American SuperMAX Prison. Then, and only then will he have learned that you just can’t go around publishing Stolen, Classified Government Documents and you just can’t go around publishing Stolen E-Mail’s of Prominent Democrats in the Unites States, such as Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and the Democratic National Committee………

    2. Stolen democracy is being defended here for which there are no rules given us by Authority.
      I doubt he will ever be released as well for torture is what they love to do without any compromise brought about by us who live within the spirit of democracy.
      England is guilty of torture as well by being complicit in its treatment of Julian Assange . It has no identity any longer as a nation but as a puppet state for the use of America’s military desires.
      Surely one can pause on this topic for questioning?
      How far are people willing to lose their culltural identity for the purpose of waging illegal wars as America continues to do.
      Why not not Vote in America’s election, instead of having English elections. At least it would be an honest reflection. Why settle for anything original like a country called England?
