Julian Assange granted leave to appeal extradition to the US

Whilst today's UK court decision is a welcome one, it does not end the suffering of Julian Assange, who has been languishing in Belmarsh Prison for 5 years.

Julian Assange exposed the crimes of governments, armed forces, global corporations and their empires — and that is why those in high power seek to silence him.

For years, the US government has sought to make an example of Assange to deter any publisher courageous enough to expose the dark world of the corrupt establishment. They now have a matter of weeks to provide assurances to the UK courts if they are to proceed with his extradition.

Whilst we await the 20 May hearing, the Peace & Justice Project will continue to call for his immediate release and return to his family.
