Online Vigil in Support of Julian Assange

On April 4, 2019 Wikileaks reported a plan to eject Julian Assange from the Ecuadorean embassy in London where he was given asylum in 2012. That asylum was given to him by president Rafael Correa, who is no longer in office. His successor, Lenin Moreno, has cut a deal with the U.S. to turn Assange over in exchange for IMF aide.

Fortunately the publicity surrounding this story has resulted in the Ecuadoreans claiming that they have no such plans. The #Unity4J team once again organized an online vigil in support of Assange. Once again I was lucky enough to be invited to participate. You can see my interview which starts at about the 5 hour mark.
