One week, two actions: Vigil for Brad and Rally for Julian – London

Posted on June 17, 2012 by wiseupwales


Bradley Manning is back in court for a motion hearing on 25 June 2012.

A solidarity vigil has been organised on Monday 25 June 2012 at 1500hrs (3pm) at the US Embassy.

We will start with a 30 minute silent vigil facing the embassy. This will be followed by speeches and music.

Veterans for Peace UK and London Catholic Worker will be bringing placards and banners but please feel free to make / bring your own.

VfP callout here.


Join with VfP and demand that Sweden abandons the extradition of Julian Assange.

The 10 day window for Julian Assange’s extradition to Sweden opens on the following day.

  • Julian has offered to be interviewed by the Swedish authorities here in the UK.
  • Julian has not been charged with any crime.
  • Julian has spent over 500 days under conditions of house arrest.

Why are the Swedes so desperate to get Julian to Sweden?

Why did Hillary Clinton visit Sweden just days after the Supreme Court decision to extradite? This was the first state visit from a US politician to Sweden in over 30 years.

Music and Speakers to be announced.
