Precariousness Of Assange’s Asylum Intensifies Solidarity Efforts

During the emergency Unity4J discussion, Cian Westmoreland cited his favorite quote from the novel Cloud Atlas, explaining that he first came across the book and quote while serving in Afghanistan. He said that the passage emphasized the importance of even the smallest actions in shaping our future. The statement is intensely apt in describing the current fight for Assange’s safety. Each of our individual small acts – and equally our small inactions, will shape our collective future in determining whether the integrity of free speech is protected, and whether Assange will one day go free.
