This year Canberra for Assange will celebrate Julian’s birthday at Commonwealth Place right on the edge of Lake Burley Griffin just beneath the flags of the the Commonwealth. 11 am in Canberra even on a winters day – should be sunny, and it is a place where families gather. It will be a friendly happy occasion where we will celebrate with balloons and cake, but also banners, leaflets and postcards. The main aim is to be a presence and witness for Julian and to educate people about Julian as they walk past and stop to chat. Depending on numbers, we may also walk across Commonwealth Bridge on the footpath nearby, with our balloons and banners. This is not a protest, there will be no speeches or chanting. We will be respecting the community as they enjoy their Sunday while reminding them that Julian and his family are a part of our community.
