If you can’t get to London to protect Assange, please consider writing your local press, and reps, a letter like this one from Mike Gajda (whose excellent letter is below):
I can’t do anything in London. But I did somehow get this letter (link below) published in a local newspaper
out here in faraway Michigan. I first sent it to our two state senators and to my congressional representative,
then I sent it to the local paper to push the issue a little more publicFrom . I don’t know what the response will be,
but if a whole lot of people sent a similar letter to their local papers, I wonder if that might do something. Who knows?
I have no problem if anybody wants to use my letter as a template to use in any way they see fit.

Stand up for Julian Assange
To Sens. Stabenow and Peters and Rep. Walberg,
Please review and listen to this short video appeal in the link below from the mother of a courageous journalist. Please do what you can to bring justice and freedom for Julian Assange. Please make your voice known publicly on this important issue affecting this brave man.
We cannot claim to be a free and democratic nation if we try to silence truth-tellers while trying to marginalize and torture them into submission. What have we become? Where are the elected officials willing to stand up for Julian Assange and against the tyrannical way in which he is being abused by way of the obvious conspiracy of vengeance conspired in by the U.S. government, the U.K. government, along with the current government of Ecuador, while keeping him trapped and imprisoned in the Ecuadorian embassy for over six years without a charge of any kind?
Where do you stand on this? Where does your conscience lead you on this issue? Can you allow it to be honest with you? Julian Assange has shown himself to be a man of courage and integrity. A widely respected journalist willing to expose the corruptions of power, of governments, of powerful individuals, and of a cowardly and corroborating corporate media establishment which refuses to lift a finger in his defense. His only crime being that he is a threat to their own expanding criminal conspiracy of lies and manipulation.
Does money and power and greed so uniformly rule the world we live in anymore that courage, integrity, truth telling and doing what we know is right becomes so easily marginalized, dismissed, and even disdained? Please answer these questions as directly and publicly as your conscience allows.
There is no time to waste. At this very moment Julian Assange is undergoing extreme physical, mental and emotional isolation in an attempt to slowly assassinate not only his voice, but the man himself. It’s a disgrace of everything America claims to stand for.
Will you raise your own voice, even if it’s the only voice, to begin to turn this tragic and immoral situation around? Before it’s too late? I look forward to your honest response. Here’s the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nxigIRUkcU
