The Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, is beginning his fifth year inside the Ecuadorean embassy in London. The 44-year-old Australian sought refuge to avoid extradition to Sweden where he’s wanted over rape allegations. But Assange, who denies the claims, believes he could be sent by Sweden to the United States where he faces a lengthy jail term for releasing more than 500,000 secret military files.

A global event celebrating freedom of expression and whistleblowers is being held to mark Assange’s sejour at the embassy. Among those taking part are Noam Chomsky, Ai WeiWei and Ken Loach.
