Welcome to this wiki, a collaborative site in which everyone can edit any page and create new pages.

It is intended to serve as a document base to empower everyone to get informed and take concrete actions against the extradition and prosecution of Julian Assange.

If you have never edited a wiki before, here are a few tips on how to ☞ get started.

Free Assange!

Here is an attempt at understanding the various possible scenarii once the first instance decision of the UK Magistrate Court, by judge Vanessa Baraitser, has been given on Jan. 4th 2021.

This information is mostly based on a diagram by the Wau Holland Foundation. It has been researched from multiple sources, and should be considered indicative. Please edit/comment any suggestion, correction or clarification.

version 2.32 - 2022-04-21 (click the image on the right)

This section is an effort to collectively research and document the various institutions, individuals and corporations in the UK, US, Sweden and Ecuador who play(ed) a role in the persecution of Assange.

The links between these pages are displayed together in a relational map that presents this information visually, helping to (re)interpret the various relations and conflicts of interests in that case.

Everyone is encouraged to enrich these pages with more facts, pictures and sources, and to add new actors.

On June 24th 2020, the US published a new version of the indictment of Assange, as a new base for requesting his US extradition. In a rather unusual move, the US are changing the nature of the accusations, while the extradition hearing (trial) is already going on. Original PDF version and full-text (OCR) version of the superseding indictment, copy-pastable with table of content and links to sections, sub-sections, etc.

  • Accusing Assange of a broadened alleged “hacking conspiracy” involving “Anonymous”, lulzsec, antisec, CCC, Snowden, etc.
  • Attempting to qualify WikiLeaks as an intelligence agency
  • doesnt formally add charges (as it would be illegal according to extradition treaties), yet heavily modifies and broadens the existing ones.
  • Is it even legal?

Judge ruled -while parroting the US DoJ on issues of free speech and national security- that due to Assange's health and high risk of suicide, he should not be extradited to the USA. The prosecution will now appeal the decision…

Hearing ended on October 1st 2020

The hearing for Assange's extradition to the USA started in London on 24th - 28th February 2020. It resumed from the 7th September to October 1st 2020. (See the defense closing statement and the the prosecution's response.)

dont-extradite-assange-uk-poster2web.jpg Julian Assange faces extradition to the US, where he risks 175 year in prison for charges based on the US espionage act for his journalistic activities publishing truthful information - exposing war crimes, lies and corruption. He has been detained in isolation in the Belmarsh high-security prison in London, since April 11th 2019.

Assange's case is emblematic for the methods used against him and his character, along with the multiple violations of international law. It is also dramatic for the precedent his extradition and jailing in the US would set for everyone involved into journalistic and truth-seeking activities.

The political and judicial persecution of Assange is part of a wider picture where the actions of many courageous hackers, whistleblowers, journalists and activists are being brutally repressed by violent forces attempting to assert their power.

Everyone is invited to take part in enriching this wiki as a document base to empower everyone to get informed and take concrete actions against the extradition of Julian Assange.

As outlined by Gavin MacFadyen, Assange's friend and mentor, journalists should take risks to expose lies and challenge power. This wiki is dedicated to his loving memory <3

Below is an evolving map of the topics described here on Challenge Power, upon which you can help elaborate.
