Julian Assange

WikiLeaks’ publications have had enormous impact worldwide. They have shed light upon a vast array of staggering government and corporate misdeeds, bringing a clearer understanding of how power functions in the 21st century.

Status update

District Judge Vanessa Baraitser has blocked Julian Assange’s extradition! While her ruling adopted the U.S. government’s extremely dangerous arguments undermining press freedom, the judge found that because U.S. prison conditions are so deleterious, it would be unjust and oppressive to extradite Julian. As the United States is appealing the decision, Julian remains in custody at HMP Belmarsh.

The appeal hearing at the High Court which will decide Julian Assange's immediate fate has been set for Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th October. This is a watershed moment in the most important press freedom case of the 21st century. If the appeal court upholds the decision to refuse extradition to the US made by Westminster Magistrates Court last January it will make it very difficult for the US to continue to seek extradition.
