Vigils and gatherings in front of embassies & symbolic places


Candles4Assange are a global collective of supporters who came together first 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 & 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 going on in Brisbane, London and Melbourne which we also try to list and promote: with German and European cities covered in more detail in ​#CANDLES4ASSANGE

Anything to say ?

“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, Julien 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.
