Assange and Patino

On 4 January, a judge denied the USA’s call for extradition of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on grounds of mental health.

However, the USA has said it will appeal to try to get Assange on trial in the USA on charges of leaking official documents, and he is set to stay in jail, where he has been since April 2019.

Despite Assange’s erratic politics, socialists should back the call for him to be released and allowed to return to his native Australia.
