The topic: Justice for Julian Assange: A Test for Western Democracy?
Some talking points:
- Why is the UK refusing to comply with the UN’s Working Group findings stating that Julian Assange should be released?
- Will the disregard of these UN Working Group findings affect the legitimacy of various democratic institutions in the UK?
- Is Assange’s struggle for freedom a sign of growing authoritarianism in the West?
- What is behind the Ecuadorian government’s change of stance on Assange, given that he was permitted refuge 5 years ago?
