Subject: WikiLeaks – hope you can help

As you may have heard I am facing arrest in the United Kingdom in relation to extradition attempts by Sweden and probably the US.
If this happens I will be stuck in solitary confinement during my defence unless I can raise the necessary funds for bail and representation.
I am reaching out to you in regard to this matter and I am also looking at support to defend our other WikiLeak people.
If you can assist or you know someone who could please contact me here or my solicitor Jennifer Robinson:
of Finers Stephens Innocent LLP.
Hope you can help,
Julian Assange – WikiLeaks
