MP Early Day Draft Email


MP Chris williamson has tabled an early day motion which condemns the on-going mistreatment and imprisonment of investigative journalist Julian Assange.

Julian Assange has been tortured on home soil and now incarcerated for the crime of proving war criminals are war criminals. He is a political prisoner.

UN special rapporteur on torture Nils Melzer says;

“In 20 years of work with victims of war, violence and political persecution I have never seen a group of democratic States ganging up to deliberately isolate, demonize and abuse a single individual for such a long time and with so little regard for human dignity and the rule of law,” and that Julian has suffered “prolonged exposure to psychological torture.”

This treatment should be condemned by ALL MP’s. Therefore I urge you to co-sign this motion which stands up for free speech, freedom of the press and human rights.

Best Regards

    Sad to see that only 5 MP’s so far have signed the early day motion… and of course, Chris Williamson is himself being persecuted on false charges!
    I have written to Maria Miller several times now.
    Here is the latest … after listening to you today Gordon.

    Dear Ms Miller

    I wrote to you a short time ago about the appalling treatment of Julian Assange.
    Whether the Conservatives have a “party line” ,obviously ,i cannot know for sure.
    However, i am writing to ask for your personal opinion on this issue.
    Assange is now effectively a Political Prisoner , being held by the U.K in Belmarsh Prison ,with no real charge,other than having embarrassed the USA over publishing the truth about the War Crimes committed by their forces in Afghanistan and Iraq…add to this the complicit guilt of the Blair Government of course.
    In more recent times Wikileaks and Assange have been associated with the failure of the Democrats in the Election that gave us Trump as President. All made up ,no Russian connections, not a “hack” but a leak from a DNC worker.
    Julian Assange’s trial a few weeks back had the CIA in attendance , telling the Magistrate what to do. This was reported by John Pilger and Craig Murray online,and only by R.T. on Television. The BBC ,Sky etc are not reporting on any of this.
    What is on the line here is press freedom…what Wikileaks published ,was also published by the Guardian, the Washington Post and New York Times…nothing that Wikileaks has ever published ,has EVER had to be retracted.
    I have seen some other responses from both Labour and Consrvative MP’s , and they have been trite and uninformed to say the least.
    I would be interested to hear your “take” on this, as a feel personally ashamed of the U.K’s ,as i see it,complicity in the torture of Assange , and compliance with American authorities in their efforts to extradite him on falsified charges , to a kangaroo court in the USA.
    I feel i cannot overstate the importance of this issue. We stand to lose the “Fourth Estate”
    We are literally imprisoning and torturing a man for being an accurate journalist , doing what Journalism should do,in holding Politicians and Governments to account.
    I urge you to do all you can to prevent Assange being extradited to the USA.
    I would say that if we/you do not support the freeing of Assange,then we do not support free speech, freedom of the press and human rights. Its really that important.
    I look forward to your reply.
    Yours Sincerely
