From the UKFoWL Facebook site:

Keep Julian Assange at the fore of everyone's mind and join in a global effort to stand up for the man who is fighting for our freedoms.
If you are near London, head down to the Ecuador Embassy (3 Hans Crescent SW1X 0LS) taking with you some myth-busting armory (https://network23.org/ukfowl/engage-and-act/demo-kit/) and stand in solidarity with Julian (in the event that Julian's asylum decision has already been made alternative venues will be suggested).
If you are not near London consider organising your own local supporting event- handing out the fact-flyers from our demo kit in your town centre for example, or organising a meet-up with friends at a local coffee house to talk over why WikiLeaks is so important to you. Arm yourself with the fact flyers and be ready to answer questions from interested passers-by.
Be inventive with your efforts to keep people thinking about Julian Assange and WikiLeaks and make sure you tell others what you are doing to support the cause- it will inspire others.
If you can, make a donation on the day http://justice4assange.com/Donate.html and help Julian and his legal team fight a battle against injustice.
If money is tight you can still play an important role in supporting Julian Assange- pledge to spend the day tweeting and emailing as many people as you can think of and remind them of the facts of the case, aim to bring WikiLeaks into every conversation you have throughout Sunday,  email a letter to your local paper and MP and explain to them why you think Julian Assange is worth supporting.... you can find more ideas of projects you can get involved with here: https://network23.org/ukfowl/2012/06/16/239/ and get in touch to share your own ideas.
Don't lets get silent on this, get engaged.

Thanks for all the info. Teclo.

I think that who is not near a city where rallies are taking place, can partecipate donating and wearing WL-Tshirts to show support on that day: so the support will be visible and the donations can fundrase wikileaks and the legal defence fund.
