Urgent: Nobel Prize Nomination for Julian Assange
Jan 30, 2021 —
Hi All, I hope you are all well. I have received a last minute urgent request placed on me to help promote the nomination of Julian Assange for a Nobel Prize. I have pasted the text from the request below sent to me below. Please help by following Stella Moris's instruction link in the text below to nominate Julian Assange for a Nobel Prize nomination.
I received this text from an associate of Stella Moris (Julian's Partner) and she was aslo copied on the email I received.
"We are reaching out to you with a request to execute a mail-out to the signatories to the large change.org petition.
It is particularly desirable that a mail out is sent very quickly in relation to the fast approaching deadline for the Nobel prize nomination. Obviously there is a large number of signatories and this can therefore have real impact.
As well as the deadline being only a few days away, it would be helpful to clarify to people that only certain individuals are able to make nominations and therefore
What is required is personal lobbying of those individuals by supporters. Please find below text which can be used for this purpose.
Julian Assange - Nobel Prize Nomination
The Deadline for nominations for the 2021 Nobel Prize close on January 31.
Stella Moris, Fiance of Julian Assange has said 'Nominations are themselves protective, but a win would be so politically protective it would very likely secure Julian's freedom'
