AAPP was formed in Canberra in early 2021. It has 21 supporting organisations around Australia.
Aims of the Alliance Against Political Prosecutions (AAPP)
AAPP is a coalition of groups and individuals advocating for truth and open justice in the matter of Bernard Collaery and Witness K and whistleblowers David McBride and Richard Boyle;
AAPP condemns politically motivated prosecutions, demands the discontinuance of the cases against such people, and calls for the provision of appropriate financial restitution;
AAPP supports whistleblowers and others, whose actions result in serious wrong-doing being brought to public notice;
AAPP opposes the use of secret hearings in such trials – transparency and open justice should remain a high priority in our justice system.
AAPP supports Julian Assange in his fight against extradition to the US and calls on the Australian government to provide every support to him to bring him home to Australia.
