On Sunday the 1 July 2012, 500 people joined a great line up of speakers in Melbourne to support Julian Assange and the crucial work of Wikileaks.

The day began with WACA joining with a protest to stop the slaughter in Syria. Both the Syrian speakers and WACA shared their support for each other and encouraged all to stay and stand together in support of demanding the protection of follow Australian Julian Assange.

With the recent release of the Syrian Files, it was incredibly timely to see the community of Syrian in Melbourne  and Wikileaks supporters come together in search of truth, justice, freedom, democracy and most importantly peace.

WACA’s journey with Wikileaks and Julian Assange, affirms to us that the people are most powerful when united.  Right now in this moment of global history the world needs organisations like Wikileaks, they are leading the way for a transparent and truthful future for us all.

If we are to protect not only Julian’s rights but all of our rights, we must come together and we must stand up to reclaim our voice. We must empowereach other if we are to win this battle and create the kind of world we wish to live in. We must remember none of us are free, unless all of us are free.

Below is a collection of some of the video’s of the day – please note WACA is still editing more footage and will update this post over the next week.

Daniel Mathews – founding member of Wikileaks

Natalie Pa’apa’a of Blue King Brown


Robbie Thorpe – Indigenous Activist
