New Twitter Campaign for raising the Julian #Assange case in Parliament during #EAW Debate #19Nov2014

Raising awareness of the Julian Assange case during the EAW debates in Britain.

A great number of WLsup took part in an on line campaign to raise the case of Julian Assange in Parliament for Monday’s debate, first by writing letters to their MPs, then taking the information campaign on Twitter were all MPs with twitter accounts registered in were contacted with information about JA’s legal plight with a request to raise it in Parliament Monday the 10th of November.

But the European Arrest Warrant Debate that was promised was not to be, read here how it descended into shambles, or here that the farce reveals the disgusting way in which Britain is governed. Still, our issue remains.

Labour, however, has said it will use an opposition day debate on 19 November to discuss and vote signing back up to the European Arrest Warrant. This is a new Opportunity to re-new our awareness campaign.

Despite the overwhelming political support for the EAW among UK political parties, we still have the opportunity to point out that #EAW is open to abuse and this has led to the violation of Julian Assange’s Human Rights. He has no Member of Parliament to represent his interests in the House, despite his case being one of the more contentious instances of the warrant’s use. He is also an Australian abandoned by his government. So let’s do our best in bringing attention to the violation of his rights, by making people aware in Twitter at the relevant hashtags #EAW #EUpol #UKpol #EUArrestWarrant
