The prophets tell us who we could be,
So we hide the poor,
And kill the prophets.”

  1. —————————————–
    Show the UK that the Australian people are prepared to
    Do what our government won’t: Stand up for Assange!
    Friday, 17 Aug 2012
    5:00 PM – 6:00 PM
    British High Commission, Commonwealth Avenue Yarralumla

    Ecuadorian Foreign Minister, Ricordo Patino, has confirmed that UK police have threatened to invade the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and arrest Julian Assange. This would be an unprecedented and scandalous violation of international law.
    Ecuador is expected to announce its decision on Assange’s asylum application tonight (10 pm AEST, Thursday 16 August). Even if it is granted, UK authorities have made it clear they will still try to arrest Assange.
    The Australian government has consistently refused to even acknowledge the US-led political persecution of Assange, let alone defend him. We need to show the UK that the Australian people are prepared to do what our government won’t: stand up for Assange!
    Please join us for an emergency rally at 5pm, Friday 17th August, outside the British High Commission, Commonwealth Avenue Yarralumla.
    Bring your whistles, placards and voices to let the UK government know what we think of their servility and cowardice in what can only be described as kowtowing to US demands!
