Julian Assange has been in the Ecuadorian Embassy for over two months. Although he has been granted asylum in Ecuador, Britain is currently refusing him safe passage out of the country and he still faces the threat of extradition to Sweden. Sweden refuses to guarantee that Julian will not be forwarded on to the US. Ecuador attempted to gain assurances from Sweden, UK and the US as well as offering that Julian could be interviewed at the Ecuadorian Embassy.
VfP have a number of placards and banners but please feel free to make/bring your own.
