Write to your MP, support Assange

I know it isn’t much, but every little bit helps. Also, we can’t complain if our politicians dont speak up for Assange if we dont.  Seems like it is coming to crunch time regarding whether or not he gets sent to Sweden. As you’ll notice, my email takes no position on the rape charges. People are welcome to use it as a template.

 speak up for Assange.

As a member of your constituency, I demand you take a stand to support Jullian Assange. You should call on other parliamentarians to do the same. Sweden should guarantee that if Assange is transferred to their custody, they guarantee no to transfer him into american or any other governments custody. International banks and money transfer agencies should lift their embargo on wiki-leaks.

Assange will be remembered as one of australia’s greatest contributions to the world. Australian politicians who do not support him should be ashamed of themselves.
