outside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London
Posted on June 22, 2012 by wiseupforbm
*** Vigil now resumed, Friday morning, 22 June ***
Update: Friday morning
A vigil has been maintained at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since
Wednesday in solidarity with Julian Assange who took refuge there on
Tuesday and is seeking political and protective asylum in Ecuador. The
vigil continued until late Thursday evening.
The vigil has now resumed today, Friday 22 June, and will continue
throughout the day. Support it
if you can.
A varied group of supporters has
mounted a vigil since 1100hrs on 20 June. Thanks to Roland and Sue for
doing the night shift. Today we had a good number of people turn up. We
are not continuing through the night, however some of the Ecuadorian
group said they might stay very late. When I left with Serena this
evening there was still a sizeable group present. Tomorrow I will be
heading back and will spend the day there. Belgique and Juan will also
be there and hopefully the numbers will build up throughout the day.
The Wikileaks crew have expressed their gratitude and said they didnít
expect a decision today. I and a few others are ready to move at short
notice if something happens tonight. The situation is still fluid and we
will reassess the situation tomorrow.
rally planned for the Swedish embassy on 28 June is now on hold
until this situation is resolved.
