Other relevant hashtags to use include #FreeAssange and #NoUSExtradition. Remember to make the time, date, city, and meeting place clear when organizing and advertising your event, and if possible, try to contact the media to gain coverage of the action.n• nIf there are no vigils near you and you feel a new stand-alone event in your area would be unsuccessful, you can always raise your voice by participating in other events, like Pride Parades, as Shona Davidson effectively did! Piggybacking onto other established gatherings/marches/celebrations may be helpful in spreading awareness to a large group of people. Other events to join in with could include music festivals, agricultural events, marathons or athletic events, etc. & carry your FREE ASSANGE sign! OR Put a FREE ASSANGE sign on the BACK of another sign!”n Write, email, and call your political representatives and demand they stand up for Assange. Also call on the UK Home Secretary to refuse Assange’s extradition to the United States. • nDefend WikiLeaks, (run by the Courage Foundation) suggests that supporters donate, (please do!) Challenge false reporting in the media, write to their political representatives, write to human rights organizations and Unions, sign petitions and join letter campaigns, and keep themselves informed.nChristine Assange, Julian Assange’s mother also said via Twitter: “You will get MOST impact for #FreeAssange If you write to OWN Federal MP, Senator, Congress Rep, Assembly Rep! Their job security depends on YOUR vote! You can always depend on a politicians self interest! They will in turn out pressure upwards on their higher ups & leaders.”n • Write (short) letters to Julian Assange attached to documentation of an action you’ve done or been a part of.nVisit WriteJulian.com for more information. You can also find more information and helpful instructions from them on Twitter: “Write Julian.”n Independent journalist Gordon Dimmack also received an extensive list of advice from a listener, which can be found in a Twitter thread posted by Gordon recently. The thread states in part:n”Just spoke to Belmarsh Prison 0208 331 4400 and was told the following:nYou can send Mr Julian #Assange a money order of up to £250.00, out of which he will be allowed £15.50 a week for in prison purchases and this: phone calls.nYou must make the money order out to HM PRISON SERVICESnMail the money order in an envelope addressed to: Mr Julian Assange DOB 03/07/1971 HMP Belmarsh Western Way London SE28 0EBnYou must write on the money order your name and address, most important.
