Over the next few weeks we will be compiling and posting messages of support for Julian. On the 12th August we will take your messages to the Ecuadorian Embassy and make sure Julian receives them.

Send in your message to [email protected] or post at the forum and find out more about this project here.



Thanks to Wikileaks, Julian Assange and Brad Manning for my freedom.





If it would have been possible I would have sent you a ray of sunshine to the Ecuadorian emabssy in London to shine on you. Since that is not realistic, with my words I just want to send you my thanks and a few words of encouragement.

Thank you; with your work and your dedication you have opened my eyes and showed me what is really important in life and made me believe that one human being can actually make a difference!

For encouragement I want to tell you that you have really had a great impact on this world. I am certain that one day you will be a free man , not only physically but also within and this will make your light shine even brighter and show even more people how brilliant and brave you are.

Love and support.

Til the bitter end!





Dear Julian

I am ashamed to hold both English and Australian citizenship after witnessing the disgusting way both countries have treated you.

Julia Gillard does not support her citizens but instead like most of the world is a yes person to the US and any other country when it suits the agenda.

Freedom of speech is almost a thing of the past and I can’t begin to express my gratitude that you have the guts to do what you do.

I hope and pray that the Ecuadorian Embassy continue to keep you safe and I thank you and them from the bottom of my heart.




Dearest Julian,


        “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre


                                                                        -Albert Einstein


        Before I happened upon I was essentially blind to the world. That

day changed my life. I had thought that minds like that were things of

the past-of the greats like Aristotle and Horace -among others. I was

proven wrong, and I am glad. I had hope that world we would leave our

grandchildren would be better than the one we had been given.

        “Men in their prime, if they have convictions are tasked to act on them.”

I assume you recognize the author of that one.

        I thank you for your courage. I am deeply ashamed of the way the world

has treated you, and I assure you that the people do not all feel that

way, there is over-whelming support and love for you and your work all

over. Its inspiring to see.  You may feel like a man without a country,

but you are a man who has the world.  You have a home in the people, you

belong to us and we will stand by you. I hope that this brings you

comfort in these hard times. You are not alone.

        Most of all I want to thank you for having the strength and conviction to

find truth, to look at it unflinchingly and have the courage to share it.

A man such as you only comes along once in a great while. Stay strong and

know that the world is a better place because of you and your work.

Dear Julian,

I don’t know where to begin to thank you for all that you do and represent in so many ways.

Ever since I was a child I struggled in my family who did not understand the importance of following my dreams, they just wanted me to become a ‘proper citizen’, following what was forced down everyone’s throat as normality.


As I was growing up I had to confront so many disillusioned people who not only don’t understand why I take on so many causes (even if just in my little ways), but who also do their best to discourage me or ridicule me because ‘no matter what I do I will not win’. I still get that a lot today.

But I have never given up thanks to the role models who constantly remind me of my power as an individual. I really look up to many who have changed history. You are one such person, in fact in this day ad time you are one such person on a global level. You would be welcomed in my home anytime should you need to find refuge. Your words of hope, the dinner for free speech, even after this long unfinished trial that you are suffering, have given me a new wave of energy and passion.

If anyone can change things for good, you can.  You have incredible strength and courage, and I know that so many people including myself have great admiration for you.

I also keep reminding people of Bradley Manning so by sharing your and his posts I hope to avoid your situations being brushed under the carpet as the government would hope. Perhaps I can ask others to join my effort. Perhaps we can email the embassy for a more direct approach? I also would like to know from you how I can support you right now. I owe you too much to let you go down. Not now, not ever.

Keep your head high, we are with you all the way because you are our great leader 🙂

Lots of love and happy smiles,

Francesca xxx
