The Belmarsh Tribunal D.C. — “Free the Truth” — The Case of Julian Assange
On December 9, 2023, the Belmarsh Tribunal will return to Washington, D.C., for its most urgent session since its launch in 2020. The Tribunal calls for the release of WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange as his potential extradition from the U.K. to the U.S. reaches its denouement with his final U.K. court hearing expected in early 2024.
Inspired by the Russell-Sartre Tribunals of the Vietnam War, the Belmarsh Tribunal brings together a range of expert witnesses — from constitutional lawyers to acclaimed journalists and human rights defenders — to present evidence of the assault on press freedom and the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
This D.C. sitting of the Tribunal will be co-chaired by Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman and The Intercept’s Ryan Grim.
