Julian Assange’s legal battle in the UK hit a roadblock on 6 June after high court judge Jonathan Swift rejected an appeal against his extradition to the US.
That left just one option in the UK legal system: Assange put in another request to the high court, appealing to a panel of two judges .
The International Federation of Journalists said: ‘The US government must drop all charges against him and close the case. If Assange goes to jail, no journalist on earth will be safe.’
Don’t Extradite Assange held a sculpture-based protest in Parliament Square, London, on 24 June. The Julian Assange Defence Campaign celebrated his birthday with cake outside Belmarsh prison on 2 July.
