Screening of 'No Extradition': Julian Assange's Father and the struggle for his son's freedom. Followed by Q&A with director, Pablo Navarrete
'No Extradition' follows John Shipton, the father of journalist and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, in his efforts to prevent his son from being extradited to the United States and secure his release from a maximum-security prison in London.
The US is seeking to extradite Julian Assange for releasing declassified US government material which exposed US war crimes. If convicted of all the charges against him he could face a 175-year prison sentence.
Filmed over more than a year and a half, No Extradition also features the voices of some of Assange’s high-profile supporters, as well as other individuals and grassroots groups campaigning for his release. Featuring Assange’s father John Shipton plus Nils Melzer (UN Special Rapporteur on Torture), M.I.A, John Pilger, Lowkey, Lisa Longstaff (Women Against Rape) and others. Followed by Q&A with director, Pablo Navarrete and Dr Deepa Driver (University of Reading). Chaired by Dr Peter Watt (University of Sheffield)
