Joe Biden was due in Sydney Wednesday where he’s facing increased pressure to let Julian Assange go.
Biden cancelled the trip but a rally in Hyde Park sent him the message anyway.
Sydney, Australia – Stella Assange, Scott Ludlum, John Shipton, Gabriel Shipton, David McBride and Stephen Kenny addressed the rally Wednesday morning. Stella Assange, on her first trip to Australia, vowed that she would return with a liberated Julian Assange and their children to his home country.
