Don't Extradite Assange Campaign

23 October 2020

Julian Assange is awaiting the outcome of his extradition hearing which took place earlier this month. The decision is due to be heard on January 4th. It has been a very long drawn out process to try to prosecute Mr Assange for uncovering war crimes during the second gulf war and we support the work of the Don't Extradite Assange campaign to stop his extradition to the US.  

ASLEF supports the views of the NUJ that the "“US charges against Assange pose a huge threat, one that could criminalise the critical work of investigative journalists & their ability to protect their sources”.

We have writen to both the Home and Shadow Home Secretary to express our concerns for the precedent that the extradition of Julian Assange would create.
