Consortium News

June 8th 2021

John and Gabriel Shipton, Julian Assange’s father and brother, launch the #HomeRun4Julian tour in Miami on June 6 at 7pm EDT via a live-streamed event. They are joined by Jen Perelman from Jenerational Change; author and activist at Code Pink, Nicolas JS Davis; lawyer Mara Shlackman and Journalist Scott Luxor. The Shiptons are scheduled to make stops on both coasts and the Midwest before concluding the tour in the nation’s capital. Assange’s family members will meet with activists, press, and policymakers to raise awareness of the importance of protecting whistleblowers and journalists, and to advocate for the release of Julian Assange, whom the United Nations has declared “arbitrarily detained” since 2010. Consortium News wishes to thank Assange Defense, Miami for Julian and Jen Perelman for their work in putting this event together and for enabling us to simulcast it.
