The #JA4me campaign on the Voices Network

The Voices Network Replay - The #JA4me campaign.

27 March 2016 00:00


The #JA4me campaign has been compared to the successful Free Mandela movement of the 1980s.

By Kiwi journalist Suzie Dawson and radio host Terry W. Bain on the Voices Network.

The one-hour podcast covered the ins and outs of the movement, as well as in-depth discussion on the significance of WikiLeaks and Julian Assange; the topic of source protection; strategies on how to build a mass movement and the historical comparison to Nelson Mandela.

Terry W. Bain: Hi and welcome back to episode 5 of ‘Voices’. Our guest this time is returning – she was actually a guest on the last of the old OASN shows – Occupy America Social Network: we did “Occupy Independence Forever.” Which was a great way to sign off on OASN. And now she’s back with the new show, “Voices”. Please say hello and introduce yourself, Suzie.

Suzie Dawson: Hi Terry, thanks so much for having me on. My name is Suzie Dawson, I’m a citizen journalist from Auckland, New Zealand. I’m also an activist and today I’m speaking for the new grassroots movement to free Julian Assange, which is called #JA4me.

For five years now, WikiLeaks’ supporters have been debating the merits or the gaping holes in the case against Julian. We have taken on the state trolls. We have waited patiently while the legal process goes through its strides. With the February ruling from the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, it is clear now that he has won that. That he has made the point that he is being arbitrarily detained. But it has also become clear that the superpowers that are set against him are not going to respect that decision. So it is going to take something beyond legal forums, beyond international diplomacy, to actually get him out of that embassy now.

To liberate him and to allow him safe passage to Ecuador. So that’s what this movement is all about. It’s about ordinary people all around the world saying “Enough is enough – these superpowers need to respect their own laws. They need to release him.”
