Actions For #Assange: Ideas And Examples Of How To Help

A resource to help people start somewhere if they can't think of what to do - not intended to be an exhaustive list.#FreeAssange #NoUSExtradition #ActionsForAssange #ProtectJulian #Unity4J #WikiLeaks
If there are no vigils near you and you feel a new stand-alone event in your area would be unsuccessful, you can always raise your voice by participating in other events, like Pride Parades as @Reikilass did -

Write, email, and call your political representatives and demand they stand up for #Assange. Also call on UK Home Secretary @sajidjavid to refuse Assange's extradition to the United States, whether directly from the UK or onward from Sweden.
#DefendWikiLeaks (run by @couragefound) suggests that supporters donate, challenge false reporting in the media, write to their political representatives, write to human rights organizations and Unions, sign petitions and join letter campaigns, and keep themselves informed.

If you are in the UK it is of special importance that you contact your political representatives in support of Assange: Defend WikiLeaks has an entire page you can look to for instructions on how to most effectively contact your MP.

A list of UK MP's and the areas they represent is available here:

.@WISEUpAction has also provided a template letter you can use when writing to UK MP's:

If you're in Australia, there are resources available to guide you in contacting your political representatives, like the following link:

#Auspol #FreeAssange #Australia #WikiLeaks #Assange

Resources are also available to aid those located in the United States to very easily contact their representatives. democracy.io/#!/

When I used the linked tool myself, it took less than three seconds to find my representatives, and one click to start to write to them.
A list of Twitter accounts of members of the European Parliament is also available here to make contacting them more accessible.

(Please don't harass anyone)

In addition to sharing articles on social media and talking in person with friends and family, you can print accurate articles about #WikiLeaks and share them via Tiny Libraries in your community, which you can find via this World Map:


The well-funded machine of power has devoted much time and effort in smearing and misrepresenting #Assange, so every minute spent in debunking smears via sharing true information on social media or in real life is time well spent.

Eg resource from @caitoz
"Most importantly: empower yourself. Don't wait from orders on high to do something. We have been conditioned as a society to wait for instruction before acting. Actively break that pattern and use every tool in your power, including whatever is inevitably not listed here."
"Never underestimate the power of your voice: the unelected power structure puts untold money and effort into building a false consensus on topics like #WikiLeaks for a reason."
