In my opinion Julian Assange is a very brave hero for exposing the evil misdeeds of American imperialism. In this blog I will explain why he should not be extradited to the USA.

Firstly I will deal with the issue of the rape issue. In 2017 the Swedish preliminary investigation was closed without charge in 2017.

Secondly there is the issue of the one sided USA/UK extradition treaty. Under the treaty UK citizens can be extradited to the USA for alleged crimes committed in the UK. However, surprise surprise. The same does not apply to American citizens who carry out alleged crimes in the USA they cannot be extradited to the UK.

Thirdly Julian was charged in November last year by the USA Department of Justice in relation to documents published by Wikileaks in 2010/2011 in relation to publications relating to war,diplomacy and rendition. These documents were published in other media outlets such as the Guardian, the Telegraph and channel four news. Why are these media outlets not being pursued by the USA authorities.

Fourthly Julian has been granted refugee status by Ecuador. So under international law he should not be extradited to the USA. The United Nations have called on the UK to uphold international law and not extradite him to the USA.

So in conclusion oppose Julians extradition to the USA. Get involved in the Julian Assange Defence Campaign and write to your member of parliament asking them to oppose his extradition to the USA.

Best wishes to all for the future.
