AFP Gabriel Shipton, a film producer, demonstrated outside the UK Consulate in Manhattan on Monday in the company of around 30 people, including American actress Susan Sarandon and British musician founder of Pink Floyd, Roger Waters.

Gabriel Shipton said he was “very worried about what hangs over Julian’s head and which only increases the pressure”. “We live in fear that he will not hold up or that he will die outright during this judicial extradition process,” he told AFP.

This is not the first time that Gabriel Shipton has been alarmed by the state of health of his elderly brother of 14 years and Julian Assange’s fiancée, Stella Moris, revealed to the British newspaper “Mail on Sunday” on Sunday that he had suffered from a “micro stroke” in prison at the end of October .

The Australian has been held in a high-security prison near London since his arrest by British police in April 2010 after spending seven years in seclusion at the London Embassy in Ecuador, where he had taken refuge while on bail. For his brother, Julian Assange “is no longer the man he was when it all started” but “he remains strong and combative”.

Major victory for the USA

Relatives and supporters of the founder of WikiLeaks speak out after a major victory on Friday for the United States in their battle to obtain his extradition of the founder of WikiLeaks, the British High Court overturning a first instance decision which opposed it. Julian Assange intends, however, to appeal to the Supreme Court.

The United States accuses him of having broadcast, from 2010, more than 700 ’00 0 classified documents on American military and diplomatic activities, in particular in Iraq and Afghanistan. Prosecuted in particular for espionage, he risks up to 175 years in prison in a case which, according to his supporters, represents an extremely serious attack on press freedom.

For the artist Roger Waters, “our lives, our freedom (…) democracy (…) depend completely on what happens with Julian Assange”, while according to Susan Sarandon “whatever we think of Julian Assange, it concerns freedom for information and journalism ”
