Unity4J vigil archive
Mar 28, 2018 - In response to Julian's internet access and visitation rights at the embassy being abruptly revoked by the Ecuadorian government, supporters swiftly organized #ReconnectJulian, a 10-hour-long online vigil event. Friends and supporters of Julian came together to speak for the voiceless. This collaboration birthed #Unity4J.
Nov 4, 2018 - After widespread media reporting that Assange was to be imminently evicted, #Unity4J held their first 'emergency meeting' and launched a new organising platform for supporting Julian, hosting monthly vigils on their Youtube platform.
June 14, 2019 - after 15 months, Unity4J held their last vigil before passing on the torch to other support groups who were inspired by their initiative.

Some great ideas found at: https://greekemmy.com/2020/03/20/coronavirus-lockdown-is-an-opportunity-to-skill-up-and-intensify-online-support-for-julian-assange

Instead of boiling in our own juices with rage for the cancellation of our ground solidarity due to the corona virus epidemic, let’s think outside the box and turn our actions online. What can one do?

  • Petitions, letter writing, twitter/facebook storms
  • Turn the on the ground actions into online vigils in the wonderful tradition of unity4j they used http://zoom.com and livestreamed on youtube. SKILL UP organisers, skill up and go viral online.
  • Organise your own online group based on the group you’ve got on the ground and find your own format of demo/protest/vigil, keep the flame alive during lockdown.
  • Stream a chosen interview JA gave and stage an online discussion via http://zoom.com or any other video conferencing app you can get hold off. Do a live podcast. It does not have to be perfect!!!!! Try and learn from trying.
  • Organise/mobilise cross country based on timezones so it is easy to congregate. Reach out to people across borders, get to know who is who, organise common online actions. We already do so on Signal and Whatsapp chats, Twitter and Facebook pages.
  • Let’s take it further and have online conferences of solidarity activists.

Don’t wait for an invitation ladies and gents - make it happen! Don’t do 1, do a 100 as and when you can link up, 1st by country then across borders. Corona Virus cannot stop our virtual travels!


The yellow ribbon is an international symbol of support for those who are missing or held hostage. Read an article explaining its origins here.

Join the global campaign #YellowRibbons4Assange to highlight the arbitrary detention of Julian Assange in Belmarsh high security prison. Write messages, hashtags etc. on your yellow ribbons and tie around trees, poles, everywhere!

Post your pictures on this twitter page and across other social media platforms with the hashtags #YellowRibbons4Assange and #Ribbons4Assange.

The campaign was started by supporter TrumanHuman2020 in May 2020 and will go on until the day Assange is free.

Given the current impossibility of demonstrating for the release of Julian Assange, here are 2 solo vigil actions proposed by #Candles4Assange that respects the rules of lockdown and social distancing.

Julian Assange and WikiLeaks are the subject of regular false claims and smears in the media – a consequence of challenging the powerful. Media outlets which should support truth-tellers often choose to side with powerful interests seeking to undermine WikiLeaks and the public’s right to know. A common smear has become to falsely link Julian Assange and WikiLeaks to Russia, when no links exist. You can write to media outlets and individual journalists who report false news, pointing out the truth. You can use individual newspapers’ complaint mechanisms to challenge editors and press them to issue apologies and retractions. You can use your online, social media presence to inform others about false media reporting. Some resources.


Arm yourself with paper, scissors and glue and let your creative juices flow!

What will you make today…a cardboard Whistle-head?, a Freedom Torch?

Donating your time to support this cause is very powerful.

Please consider also making a financial contribution to help cover the cost of running organisations and campaigns.
Did you know that Julian's lawyers are working pro bono, or that WikiLeaks is entirely funded by its readers and is being challenged by multi-million dollar corporations?
