Mick Wallace independent MEP for Ireland South holds the EU to account.

Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya asked for all political prisoners to be released in #Belarus

Mick Wallace, agreed 100% about realising political prisoners but then went on to asked her to join him in also calling for the release of political prisoners in #Catalunya and the release of Julian #Assange in London.

Sadly Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya wasn’t interested in other prisoners…

Article 2 (7) states that the United Nations has no authority to intervene in matters which are within the domestic jurisdiction of any State unless authorised by the UN.


On the 3rd of July 2019, the EU parliament reopened independent politicians Mick Wallace and Clare Daly wore t-shirts supporting the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange whose birthday fell on the same day. 

“Assange is in prison because he exposed the ugliness of US Foreign Policy. Anyone who cares about a free independent media should challenge the treatment of Julian Assange,” Wallace wrote on Twitter. 

Wallace and Daly, who were members of Ireland’s parliament, also carried signs saying “End fortress Europe” and “Since 2015 over 10,000 migrants have died in the Mediterranean.” They also met Assange in 2013 when he was in the Ecuadorean embassy in London. 

In August as the Julian Assange trial started Ken Loach called out Sir Keir Starmer asking what he knew about the case while the head of prosecutions saying “Starmer should be challenged, what does he know?”

Loach said: “This should be a test for him! Starmer speaks of openness in his dealings, well let him be open about this, and let’s hear what he says about the torture and the illegal oppression of Julian Assange” read more and watch the video here Exclusive: Ken Loach calls out Sir Keir Starmer, what was his dealings in the Julian Assange case
