BREAKING NEWS: Christine Assange 8-Page Letter to the Hon. Kevin Rudd, Australian Foreign Minister

SOURCE: Christine Assange

Christine Assange, mother of the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, made her first public Australian appearance today by lobbying outside the Brisbane offices of Australian Foreign Minister, Kevin Rudd at 5.30pm.

Surrounded by a small crowd of news crews & reporters from Network Ten, the Courier Mail and other news outlets, Ms Assange demanded Mr Rudd take immediate diplomatic action toward Sweden in order to protect her son's legal and human rights.

She demanded that the Foreign Minister make the necessary representations to protest & halt current extradition proceedings in London. She also urged Mr Rudd to stand up against the US government and make them prosecute those officials who incite violence against her son.

Failure to act and protect Julian, she said, would require Mr Rudd's registration due to not meeting his duties and by effectively reneging on his previous promises that he would help towards protecting her son's rights and his life.

Julian Assange's mother Christine has demanded action, not just talk, from Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd.

Ms Assange hand-delivered an eight-page handwritten letter to Mr Rudd's Brisbane electorate office on Friday evening, also reading it to journalists.

While she spared some praise for Mr Rudd for his words in support of her son, Wikileaks founder Julian, she said he had failed to act on them.

Julian Assange awarded Sydney peace medal

In the estimation of the Sydney Peace Foundation, Australian WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange stands alongside the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela.
As he outrages and embarrasses world leaders by leaking secret US diplomatic cables - and continues to face down allegations of sex offences - Mr Assange has been chosen by the foundation to receive a rare gold medal for peace with justice.

Wednesday, February 9 · 5:30pm - 8:30pm

Julian Assange’s extradition trial begins Monday 7th February. It is obvious the goal of these hearings is to get Assange to the USA so they can shut him up and shut down Wikileaks. There will be demonstrations happening all across Australia over this period, it is urgent that people come out and take a stand to defend freedom of information and Wikileaks.
