Public Meeting At Victoria University, Wellington (Hosted by SEP NZ)
#BringJulianHome Queensland Parliament 7pm by @Julian_Home)
Public Lecture @JA_Defence: 6pm
#Vigil4Assange: Belmarsh Prison, London - Solidarity Vigil + Action Outside Free Press / Freedom of Expression NGOs #Vigil4Assange - Belmarsh 2-4pm
#HumanRightsDay: Focus on Non-Governmental Organisations with mandate to protect Human Rights. Many of these organisations use Wikileaks publications but have never campaigned for Assange despite the obvious multi-state sponsored political persecution underway. Possible launch of a funding drive / social media support and amplification for those NGO's who recognise and support this cause. #HumanRightsDay - NGO HQs
#IAmJulianAssange - Hearing in London
As Assange wrote in one of his recent letters from Belmarsh to an activist asking for suggestions: Consider peaceful protests outside "Soft" targets (eg. NGO's with human rights / press / antiwar or sympathetic media - Le Monde etc. / Govt. representatives seeking election) en-route marching to a protest at a "hard" target (eg. corporate Media HQs - local government offices, or OZ / UK / US embassies, consulates worldwide). We are suggesting peaceful actions or civil disobedience, however each country may have their own restrictions / safety considerations. Organisers may need to seek formal permission to protest, however only take action in public, if it is safe to do so.
#HappyBdayChelsea: Focus on protecting and highlighting the plight of various whistleblowers at the hands of those they exposed - lobbying MP's to introduce protective measures / government policy that will protect future journalistic activities. #HappyBdayChelsea
If you have ideas on how to honour Chelsea's birthday and protect whistleblowers generally please get in touch. There is still time to organise
