Stella interview on ABC 7.30:


On Monday 22 May, Stella Assange will be in Canberra, Australia to address The National Press Club with Jenifer Robinson, Australian Human Rights Lawyer and Barrister. Follow this link for tickets:

Saffrine Duggan, wife of jailed Australian pilot Daniel Duggan who is also awaiting extradition to the US, will also be at the event. Also addressing the rally will be  lawyer Bernard Collaery, and ADF whistleblower David McBride. We hope you can join this event to support Julian Assange or pass the information, as well as of the Sydney rally (below) onto others.

While Biden is no longer coming to Australia (ignore that on the poster), the rally in Sydney is still going ahead.

She will then join the protest on Wednesday in Hyde Park at 10am in Sydney alongside Julian Assange’s father John and brother Gabriel Shipton, Senator Peter Whish-Wilson, Stephen Kenny and David McBride.

People say that (writers) are pretty powerless: we don’t have an army, we don’t have a bureaucracy. But if that were true, then why would writers be arrested?... Because the spoken word is powerful.
