The WikiLeaks Parade is the Peace Parade is the Truth Parade.
The WikiLeaks Parade is a cry from artistic souls to unite people who believe we can shift things, collectively through creative peaceful interventions. We are outraged by the treatment of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange who has become a political prisoner in the heart of London. We call upon artists, activists, academics, politicians, the judiciary and ordinary citizens, not only in the UK but worldwide, to open their eyes, do some fact finding, stand up for publisher Julian Assange and declare to the Governments of the US, UK and Ecuador that they will not let this go unchallenged. What is at stake here is not only the life and liberty of one of the most courageous activists the world has ever seen, but our ability, as a society, to hold the powerful to account, understand what our governments are up to, exercise our right to free speech, and evolve into a lawfully governed, transparent and just society where citizens are able to challenge the powers that be and achieve progress to the benefit of all. We will use creative musical and theatrical interventions which will happen spontaneously in the heart of London. Expect us, dance with us, talk to us, challenge us.
But most of all, find your own courage.
