Stella Morris marries Julian Assange ‘the love of her life’ at Belmarsh maximum security prison
Award winning journalist Julian Assange and Stella Morris married at Belmarsh prison today with four guests and two witnesses in attendance.
In a joint statement Julian and Stella called on ordinary people everywhere to continue the fight against his extradition to the United States:
This wedding is more than just your average tying of the knot. This is a powerful statement to the world that love transcends all bounds, even those of powerful states bent on revenge and corrupt self-interest. Support our fight for freedom, for truth, and for love. Help us get Julian back to his family. It is only by standing together, that we can stand at all.
Below is a picture of Stella Morris, her children and Julian’s brother Gabriel on the way to the prison for the wedding ceremony.
WikiLeaks has pointed out that, “No pictures of Julian Assange from today are available as prison authorities deemed images of the groom a 'security risk'.’’
Stella has described the intense policing of her wedding by the prison authorities:
Every part of this private event is being intensely policed, from our guest list to the wedding picture.
Behind the scenes we have been locked in a dispute with the Ministry of Justice and prison authorities, who have denied our proposed witnesses because they are journalists; and who have denied our proposed photographer because he also works as a press photographer, even though they would all attend in a private capacity.
The prison states that our wedding picture is a security risk because it could end up in social media or the press. How absurd. What kind of security threat could a wedding picture pose?
On the same day as the wedding the National Union of Journalists has renewed its opposition to Julian’s extradition to the US.
I will leave the last words on Julian’s case to his new wife Stella:
Julian is not charged with a crime in the UK. The charges he faces in the United States are, according to Amnesty International, politically motivated. And according to every major press freedom organisation, the charges are also an attack on journalism itself, because they criminalise journalism and open the doors to imprisoning journalists for doing their jobs.
The urge of the authorities to silence and disappear Julian is born out of fear. We have the strength of our love and righteous conviction. Julian’s family will fight for his freedom and for his life, until he is free. Love over fear. Join us.
