Julian Assange Wrote A Letter To His Supporters From British Prison

Julian Assange is seriously ill as he awaits extradition for charges which could land him in jail for the rest of his life. As the Swedish and Danish speaking press reported, Assange is currently being held in the hospital ward of “Belmarsh,” the United Kingdom’s most notorious prison. Belmarsh has been called “Britain’s Guantanamo Bay,” as prisoners accused of terrorism are usually sent there.


Amid speculation about the embattled journalist’s health, independent journalist Gordon Dimmack received a letter which was attributed to Assange. Dimmack was one of several people to write Assange since his arrest, yet he was nervous about revealing the response to the public because he wasn’t sure if it was authentic.


Nevertheless, other supporters that have written to Assange have also received responses, all written in handwriting which bears an extremely close resemblance to that of the WikiLeaks founder, as reported by The Canary.


In the letter to Dimmack, Assange wrote:


“I have been isolated from all ability to prepare to defend myself: no laptop, no internet, ever, no computer, no library, so far, but even if I get access it will be just for half an hour, with everyone else, once a week. Just two visits a month and it takes weeks to get someone on the call list and a Catch-22 in getting their details to be security screened. Then all calls except lawyers, are recorded and calls are max ten minutes and in a limited 30-min window each day in which all prisoners compete for the phone. And credit? Just a few pounds a week and no one can call in.

The other side? A superpower that has been preparing for nine years with hundreds of people and untold millions spent on the case. I am defenseless and am counting on you and others of good character to save my life.

I am unbroken, albeit literally surrounded by murderers, but the days when I could read and speak and organize to defend myself, my ideals, and my people are over until I am free! Everyone else must take my place.

The US government, or rather, those regrettable elements in it that hate truth liberty and justice, want to cheat their way into my extradition and death, rather than letting the public hear the truth, for which I have won the highest awards in journalism and have been nominated 7 times for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Truth, ultimately, is all we have.”

On May 2nd, 2019, the first hearing concerning Assange’s extradition to the USA was held in London.

When the judge asked Assange whether he consented to the extradition, Assange said, “I do not wish to surrender myself for extradition for doing journalism that has won many, many awards and protected many people”.


On May 23rd, 2019, Assange was indicted on 17 new charges under the Espionage Act, that together carry a potential prison sentence of 175 years.



The official WikiLeaks Twitter account shared a statement saying his health has “significantly deteriorated.”


Photos were recently leaked to the press that showed Assange when he first arrived at the prison. The images were taken by another prisoner and then somehow smuggled out of jail.


In the photographs, Assange can be seen looking tired, sick, and malnourished, yet in good spirits as he talked and joked with the other prisoners. Nevertheless, according to the Gateway Pundit, that published the photographs, they were taken before Assange was admitted to the hospital ward.


The prisoner that leaked the pictures to the press says that Assange is well liked among the other prisoners at the facility.
