Don't Extradite Assange Campaign started this petition to Priti Patel, Rt Hon Robert Buckland MP and

Dear Prime Minister Boris Johnson,
Dear Home Secretary Priti Patel,
Dear UK Home Office,

If extradited to the United States, Julian Assange, father of his 2 young British children, would face a sentence of 175 years in prison merely for receiving and publishing truthful information that revealed US war crimes.

UK Judge Vanessa Baraitser previously ruled "it would be oppressive to extradite him to the United States of America".

Amnesty International states that “Were Julian Assange to be extradited or subjected to any other transfer to the USA, Britain would be in breach of its obligations under international law.”

Human Rights Watch published an article saying, “The only thing standing between an Assange prosecution and a major threat to global media freedom is Britain. It is urgent that it defend the principles at risk.”

The NUJ has stated that the “US charges against Assange pose a huge threat, one that could criminalise the critical work of investigative journalists & their ability to protect their sources”.

Julian will not survive extradition to the United States.

The UK is required under its international obligations to stop the extradition. Article 4 of the UK-US extradition treaty must be enforced, which prohibits extradition for political offences

The decision to either Free Assange or send him to his death now solely rests with with you. Do not send Julian to the country that conspired to murder him in London.

You can, and you must save Julian Assange's life.

Yours sincerely,
