Pirate Party: Give Julian Assange safe passage to Ecuador

Thursday, 4 February, 2016 - 12:30

The Pirate Party welcomes reports that the United Nations panel on arbitrary detention has ruled that the UK's treatment of Julian Assange is unlawful. The UK should now grant him safe passage to Ecuador.

David Elston, Pirate Party deputy leader said:

Could Wikileaks revelations result in less internet freedom?

The Wikileaks website has revealed a diplomatic report setting out a long list of key facilities around the world which the United States describes as vital to its national security.

As cyber attacks on the Wikileaks site mount, could the affair end up limiting the freedom and power of the internet?

The BBC's Lawrence Pollard brought together Loz Kaye from the UK Pirate Party, which campaigns for internet freedom, and Stewart Baker, who used to work in policy for the US Department for Homeland Security.

Assange Asylum Granted

Thursday, 16 August, 2012 - 13:45

Ed Geraghty made the following statement regarding Ecuador's granting of Julian Assange asylum in Ecuador which was confirmed today:

"It is clear from today's announcement that Ecuador agrees with Julian Assange's argument that his extradition would put him in danger. It may be a positive step for an Ecuador that has itself pursued crackdowns on private media and public dissent, however I hope that this is not an attempt to score political points, but a legitimate humanitarian move".

Official - 'Assange Asylum will be Granted'

Tuesday, 14 August, 2012 - 20:15

Ed Geraghty made the following statement regarding reports that Ecuador's president Rafael Correa has agreed to grant Julian Assange asylum in Ecuador:

"If these reports are accurate then it is clear that Ecuador recognises the risks faced by Julian Assange and others who seek to expose Government and corporate wrong-doing. It may be a positive step for an Ecuador that has itself pursued crackdowns on private media and public dissent, however I hope that this is not an attempt to score political points, but a legitimate humanitarian move".

Julian Assange seeks political asylum.

Tuesday, 19 June, 2012 - 21:15

Ed Geraghty commented on reports that Julian Assange is seeking political asylum in London's Ecuadorian Embassy:

"It is extremely unfortunate that Mr Assange has felt the need to take this step. Assange has maintained that this extradition is politically motivated and it would appear he feels that the Australian government is unable or unwilling to provide him with the support he needs."
