On the 50th birthday of Julian Assange dozens of supporters of the founder of Wiki Leaks rallied and spoke out at the British consulate in San Francisco.
They also had a cake to honor his birthday. He is still imprisoned by the UK government under draconian conditions for false charges by the FBI and other government agencies that want him
extradited to the United States where he could be imprisoned for up to 175 years.

The US government both Democrats and Republican are prosecuting Assange for "espionage" although he is not a US citizen and this threatens all journalists an published who expose the crimes of US imperialism and illegal wars around the world.
This also included the recent bombings in Iraq and Syria which are war crimes under the Biden administration and violate international law.
This rally took place on July 3, 2021
