Supporters of Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning and Glenn Greewald rallied in San Francisco at the UK consulate on January 24, 2020 to demand Assange's freedom.

It was part of an international day of action for Assange where a trial on his extradition was being held in the UK.

Speakers also called for the freedom of Chelsea Manning and the defense of journalist Glen Greenwald who is also being threatened by the Bolsonaro government in Brazil.

They also discussed the case of San Francisco journalist Brian Carmody whose home and office was illegally invaded by the San Francisco police with improper warrants.

Following the rally, participants went into the building to demand a meeting with the UK consulate general but were prevented from meeting with the UK consulate general.
