DiEM25 local groups took to the streets on July 3 to demand Assange’s freedom

For almost 10 years now, Julian Assange has been atoning with his freedom for his deeds as a journalist.

On July 3 DiEMers around Europe celebrated his 50th birthday with a coordinated protest action.

The latest revelations in the case of Julian Assange about fabricated evidence show once again that his prosecution is a massive attack on our freedom. To break the media silence and show our support, we took to the streets of Europe to demand his freedom.

It is crucial to counter the character assasination that the establishment has launched against him and show our support to help turn around the general conception of him as a person.

To ask the public: “Why are you so afraid of Assange?” To talk to people on the streets and let them know that Julian Assange is suffering in the middle of Europe in a prison cell for revealing war crimes. To gain their support for our Advisory Panel member!

For this every small action counts. We have been part of bigger protests as well as doing our own small actions. In some cities there were only three of us, but we were part of a worldwide growing protest. And we are proud of what we have achieved so far. Check out the collection of pictures from different places on our DiEM Voice gallery.

We went to bring the DiEM Voice exhibition about the Julian Assange case into life and onto the streets in Europe. With our masks we showed that they are trying to silence Julian and the free press. We invited the media and made some headlines, like in the local news in Berlin, Germany.

Our action was complemented by a DiEM Voice TV episode on July 5. Watch it here and most importantly, Join DiEM25 to protect press freedom and safe democracy!
