We beginnen met een korte video over DiEM25 en de lange strijd voor Assange’s vrijheid door middel van protesten, debatten en filmvertoningen. Onze medeoprichter Yanis Varoufakis bezocht Assange onlangs in Belmarsh en was getuige van zijn aftakeling onder de zware omstandigheden waaraan hij wordt blootgesteld.

Onze eerste spreker is Juan Salmeron die een lezing zal geven getiteld “Van Belmarsh naar Gaza: Assange, Palestina en de oorlog tegen journalistiek”.

Daarna hebben we een verbinding met Londen om het laatste nieuws van de eerste dag van Assange’s hoorzitting te horen. We maken ook verbinding met een andere DiEM25-actie in Derry, Ierland.

Richard Lahuis presenteert zijn project: ‘Valide waarden in relatie tot de politieke vervolging van Julian Assange.’

Vragen aan de sprekers zijn mogelijk tot we sluiten om 21:30 uur. The DiEM25 Policy Coordinator Amir Kiyaei is available for questions as well.

Juan Salmeron is an attorney, journalist, and academic with extensive experience in the fields of intellectual property, international contracts, private law, financial transactions, private international law, digital rights and privacy. Somehow also a music photographer.

Richard Lahuis is an independent Dutch photographer currently living in Hamburg, Germany. He employs a personal and intimate approach to create projects that explore the essence of humanity. Guided by the knowledge that beauty possesses the power to unite us, his work captures the nuances of our shared human experience.
