1/5
A small boy clutches tiny white flowers
Picked beside prison walls
thrust hastily into jean pockets

a yellow centre
surrounded by white petals
extending outwards
like a sun of truth

2/5
Many years ago
shortly after creating an ingenious technology
to speed up the dissemination of truth
and end wars
his father spoke of a sun of truth
as a guiding beacon for civilisation

3/5
The small boy passes through
prison gates
silent corridors
the frame of a metal detector
stern faces in uniform.

Large hands
check small pockets
the daisies are confiscated
sheepishly and awkwardly
another act of compliance

1/3 We were very fortunate to have an interview with Daniel Ellsberg at his home in California this morning! It was in incredibly inspiring experience talking to this legendary whilstleblower, peace activists, author and luminary!

2/3 We had a few challenges with planes flying overhead and a excess sun in the garden to contend with, however we think the result will look and sound fantastic. We had goose-bumps with the powerful, inspiring words and ideas shared!

3/3 We waited almost a year to be able to interview Daniel Ellsberg in person rather than having a zoom call, as we wanted the picture and sound to be incredible - to help make the film as impactful as possible!

1/5 “We must come to understand
That this system is set up so that
Our ignorance is their power
Our naïveté their free ride
Our acquiescence their re-enforcenent
Our pessimism their fuel
Our dis-organisation their accelerant”.
#FreeAssangeNOW #Assange #FreeSpeech
2/5 “Our helplessness their ammunition
Our lack of time is their advantage
Our can’t be bothered is their free ticket
Our waning interest is their ascendency
Our illusions their vehicle.
Our apathy is their super highway to greater control”.

3/5 “Humanity will only grow with awareness
Humanity can only progress through knowledge.
Humanity will only flourish via access to reality”.

2/5 Daniel and Julian are good friends. Daniel testified at the Extradition hearing for Assange in 2020. He told the court that that they shared the same aspirations, to shine a light on the “great lack of transparency” in decision-making circles in the U.S.

3/5 Like Assange, Ellsberg faced the prospect of decades, at least, in prison for releasing the Pentagon Papers.

1/5 Now more than ever, our right to speak our mind, question authorities and have dissenting views is being diminished.
Now more than ever, we must stop acquiescing to the empire.
#FreeAssangeNOW #Assange #FreeSpeech Image
2/5 Now more than ever, we must stop comprising our values and integrity to advance our careers.
Now more than ever we must have integrity and hold fiercely to our core values.
#FreeAssangeNOW
3/5 Now more than ever, we must see through the illusions
Now more than ever, we must get off the fence.
Now more than ever, we must see through the illusions of violent wars on innocent people under the guise of protecting democracy.

1/3 Now more than ever we must act.
Now more than ever, there is a precedent being set.
Now more than ever, we must halt the accelerating drift towards a transnational dystopia.

#FreeAssangeNOW Image
2/3 Now more than ever, we must stand for peace, truth and justice.
Now more than ever, there is a father, a husband, a journalist and publisher who needs our help.
Now more than ever, we must think of future generations.
#FreeAssangeNOW
3/3 Now more than ever,
We must say something,
And we must do something.

#Thread A few significant excerpts from @NilsMelzer’s follow-up letter to #Sweden copied to UN Human Rights Council spcommreports.ohchr.org/TMResultsBase/… The real reason #Assange was forced to seek asylum in #Ecuador’s embassy: Sweden & UK conspired to block any appeal to international courts
@NilsMelzer 2. All the UK govt’s talk of “hypothetical” extradition to the US was a bald-faced lie, one even made the day before #Assange’s asylum was illegally rescinded by #Ecuador (with UK's collusion) & the US extradition request magically appeared within hours spcommreports.ohchr.org/TMResultsBase/…
@NilsMelzer 3. “The manner in which #Sweden conducted its preliminary investigation against Mr #Assange was the primary factor that triggered, enabled & encouraged the subsequent campaign, the cumulative effects of which can only be described as psychological torture” spcommreports.ohchr.org/TMResultsBase/…

This was performed during our rally in #Düsseldorf on August 10 in front of the US consulate.
The starting point of this performance is Plato’s Allegory of the Cave which I adapted to #JulianAssange ‘s and #ChelseaManning ‘s ongoing persecution.
As a reminder: the Allegory relates the story of a group of prisoners who spend their lives chained, unable to turn their head around. There is a fire and people behind them who are holding figures and objects which cast shadows on a wall in front the prisoners.
During their whole live, these prisoners will never ever see the fire or the figures and objects themselves.
They also hear echoes of conversation and sounds but never a true voice or word. That’s what shapes their perception of the world.

Émile Zola changed public perception in the Dreyfus Affair w J´Accuse..!This ExcellentWriting is the equivalent for Assange.Zola may have helped the release of Dreyfus from DevilsIsland. I hope this 1will help secure Assange doesn’t go there

I don't think I have much say in what's happening in #HongKong, given that I've only lived there for the first four years of my life & have visited there a handful times as an adult. #hongkongcanadian Photos From the Hong Kong Extradition Protests nyti.ms/2X3ywPH
However I have loved ones living there & my grandparents had worked hella hard to move to HK where they ended up having my parents & them having me. I've always been proud to say that I was born in HK while living in Canada & it's always been joyful talking about my visits there.
The past several years in HK have been slowly crushing my soul & now that I've a better understanding of my rights & the sociopolitical circumstances I face, it's absolutely devastating to see this happening to my birth city. #HongKongProtest #freehongkong #onecountrytwosystems
