Julian Assange is facing extradition to the US, where he would face 175 years in prison for espionage. His crime was to publish the war crimes committed by troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
He remains in Belmarsh High Security Prison, despite serving his bail charge and the ongoing risk of Coronavirus. He is unable to prepare his defence for the hearing, which has been postponed to later this year.
Assange's case is an attack on press freedom and his extradition will have huge consequences for the anti-war movement.
