10 june - Defend WikiLeaks’ editor Julian Assange

The Socialist Equality Party will be holding public meetings in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth on Sunday, June 10, to defend WikiLeaks’ editor and Australian citizen Julian Assange.

The British Supreme Court has rejected his appeal against attempts to extradite him to Sweden on dubious sexual assault allegations, for which he has not even been charged. The Swedish authorities are functioning as nothing more than a tool of the US Obama administration, which wants to force Assange to Sweden. The goal is to create the conditions where he can be seamlessly extradited to the United States and brought before a secret Grand Jury to face espionage charges. Assange is threatened with the prospect of lifetime imprisonment or a potential death sentence.
