“Every time we witness an injustice and do not act, we train our character to be passive in its presence and thereby eventually lose all ability to defend ourselves and those we love"—Julian AssangeWe're the Julian Assange Defence Committee (JADC), a grassroots solidarity group based in London. We've been holding vigils outside the Ecuadorian Embassy for nearly 7 years now, and we've been outside Belmarsh Prison recently, and also organising other #FreeAssange events in the heart of London.
We're fundraising to cover some urgent expenses for resources to raise awareness of Julian Assange's plight and campaign for his freedom.What will your donations do?
