Free Julian Assange!

1. This conference recognises that Wikileaks exposed secret communications and war crimes committed by the US and as a consequence Julian Assange is held as a political prisoner of the UK state. We recognise his treatment is a threat to the freedom of the press and right of citizens to know what is being carried out by the state.

2. This conference opposes his extradition to the United States, condemns his cruel treatment in prison and calls for his immediate release from jail.

3.  This conference supports the campaign to Free Julian Assange. We urge all participants to raise the demand for his immediate release in Labour Party meetings, trade union branches and community organisations and where possible to link it with the issue of defence of free speech.
