Candles4Assange is a global collective of supporters who first came together on 3 July 2019 when Wellington invited the world to a birthday vigil for Julian. 62 cities from 25 countries came together, to fight for Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning's freedom. 'Candles' now work with a series of groups to list and instigate international solidarity actions in support of specific one-off actions going on in Belmarsh / Central London and key sites in the US and Australia.

There are over 49 cities holding regular protests (almost 30 in Germany alone!) and daily events / sit-ins and various daily actions in Brisbane, London and Melbourne. We try to list and promote these at

Travelling exhibition since 2015


“Anything to say?”, is a life size bronze sculpture, portraying three figures each one standing on a chair. The fourth chair is empty because it is our chair. The one for us to stand up on to express ourselves or simply to stand next to Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning, who had the courage to say no to the intrusion of global surveillance and to lies that lead to war. Both loved and hated, they chose to loose the comfort zone of their lives to tell the truth.

First unveiled in Alexanderplatz, Berlin, Germany on 1st May 2015
