Ring your Candidate

Starting a conversation with your candidates in your electorate is effective way to do your part to push for Julian’s release and the protection of international journalism.

The Australian government is in a position to raise this issue internationally, so let’s put the pressure on them to pick up the phone and join the fight for press freedom.


First, introduce yourself.

Second, open the conversation. Ask where your MP stands:

  • Do you support the release of Julian Assange?
  • Do you support a truly free press?
  • Do you support protections for journalists from political prosecution?
  • Do you support a robust democracy?
  • Do you support the exposure and prosecution of war crimes?
  • Will you stand up for these issues?

Lastly, sign off. Let your Candidate know you look forward to hearing from them.
