Emergency Call To Action Week 53

Tags: Social

Tomorrow the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, will be meeting with President Donald Trump to celebrate the signing of the new trade deal. President Obrador has vocally supported Julian Assange thanks to the pressure of organized labor in Mexico and we are seeking to have him pressure President Trump.

I compiled a list of emails from Mexican Consulates around the world so we can collectively ask President Obrador to ask Trump to immediately release Julian Assange.

We are asking everyone to be as respectful as possible when contacting the consulates! This is a copy of the message that I sent to the consulates.

You can send an email to everyone at once, or one at a time. Just make sure they are personalized and direct to President Obrador.

Call To Action Week 50!

Tags: Social

Each week we are asking everyone to take some time to be the local protest for Julian Assange. Anything from one person sit-ins at local media stations, hanging posters on telephone poles (not trees), banner drops on over-passes, or passing out flyers on the street makes a big difference.

We are asking everyone to not only take action for Julian, but also against police brutality, unaccountability, and racism. Find your local chapter for Black Lives Matter or the Democratic Socialists of America and get involved in their protests.

Hang Posters and Do Banner Drops!!
This is something we take about quite often, but counter-propaganda is very important! Light poles, street signs (on the back), NOT TREES, public fences, over passes, etc!
(Cheap towels, bed sheets or tablecloths + paint + zipties make great banners)
Action 4 Assange’s George Floyd Solidarity Posters
Action 4 Assange Posters and Posters By Bean
Find a local print shop (or do it at home) and hang them up around town.
It takes roughly an hour to hang 100 posters using staples or tape.

** Important ** The legality of hanging posters and dropping banners varies from state to state, and sometimes county to county. Please check your local laws before assuming this risk.

Call To Action Week 49

Tags: Social

Now Is The Time To Take Action! As the nation is gripped by a pandemic, protests, provocateur, and martial law we cannot allow Julian’s struggle to be forgotten. As always we encourage everyone to be peaceful and be safe, but we must continue our actions in the street.

sol·i·dar·i·ty

/ˌsäləˈderədē/
noun: solidarity; singular proper noun: Solidarity; noun: Solidarity

  1. unity or agreement of feeling or action, especially among individuals with a common interest; mutual support within a group.
    “factory workers voiced solidarity with the striking students”

Find your local chapter for Black Lives Matter or the Democratic Socialists of America and get involved in their protests. While you protest against organized police violence, systemic abuses of power, and complete unaccountability for government employees keep in mind this is the same system of oppression that has Julian imprisoned as well.

If you aren’t near a major city, it doesnt mean you cant protest, as we encourage everyone to engage in Decentralized Activism above all else. Being the one person in your community makes a big difference and a much larger impact than most people realize.

Hang Posters and Do Banner Drops!!

Amnesty International Needs To Act Now!

As the leading international organization defending human rights, Amnesty International has truly failed in defending Julian as they should. As of the latest publication Julian Assange has still failed to appear as a prisoner of conscience. Help us contact Amnesty International and demand they take action on behalf of Julian Assange.

Roll Call For Organizers

Julian Assange & Journalism Face Certain Death Unless We Organize Now!

The second phase of WikiLeaks founder and publisher, Julian Assange, begins on Sept 7, 2020. He is currently on remand in Covid-ridden Belmarsh prision in London. UN Rapporteur on Torture, Nils Melzer, has stated repeatedly that Assange has been subjected to prolonged, psychological torture. If extradited to the US, he faces 17 charges under the Espionage Act, a show trial, and 175 in prison for the 2010 publication of Collateral Murder, the Iraq/Afghan War Logs, the Gitmo Files, and Cablegate.

This would set the precedent that any journalist can be prosecuted by any country seeking retaliation for the disclosure of their crimes!
 
 We are asking you to organize with us!

In February, Action4Assange held demonstrations and events in Washington DC and Arlington, VA during the first round of Julian’s hearing. These events we co-sponsored by Code Pink, Popular Resistance, Veterans For Peace, People’s Power Assembly, Unity4J, and the 1vs5i campaign.

We call upon you to activate the members within your respective organization for coordinated demonstrations across the globe!
 
 Action4Assange is producing a series of teach-ins, designed to educate/bring up to date everyone concerned about the fate of journalism, human rights, and rule of law. Please help distribute this informative mini-documentary!
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2iSkhnS0Xag

Together, we can save the life on an innocent man and save press freedom for generations!

Call To Action Week 47

Tags: Social

With it being the month of way we have put a heavy focus into contacting the different organized labor groups around the world. This week we are going to continue that theme by reaching out to different chapters of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Democratic Socialist of America
The DSA is a political organizing institution that spans the entire country. Political identity aside, they focus a lot of energy on issues of war and humans right quite often. We are asking people to share the first Teach-In with them, as well as up-to-date articles on Julian’s situation.

Share the first Teach-In with 10 people!
So everyone hates chain letters, but its important to get the message out about the Julian’s situation the best we can. Sharing the teach-in can be a great way to start a conversation with other friends/loved ones about the current threat to the free press. Teach-In One “Who is Julian Assange?”

Call To Action; Week 45

Tags: Social

With the month of May standing as a symbol as international worker solidarity, we are going to use this week’s action to contact labor leaders and worker groups around the world! Please make sure to be respectful!

1. Provide recent news and updates about Julian’s situation for them to distribute to their membership.
2. We should educate and encourage them to start groups similar to Doctors 4 Assange and Lawyers 4 Assange, but specific for their trade.
3. We can also ask them to have the organizations issue statements on Julian’s behalf about his trial and treatment.
4. Ask for a point of contact about who in the organization would handle a request like this.
5. You can always share Action 4 Assange’s contact information;

Pushing Back Against The State

Local Government Education About Facial Recognition
Contact your local mayor, sheriff, police chief, and councilfolk about dangers of facial recognition and the ways others communities have banned it. Often times providing examples of other cities that banned facial recognition shows them how it can be done for them locally.
You can share these articles and resources with them:
