Stella Assange has had a big week, with major outlets inviting her on to discuss Julian’s plight. Here she is with the legendary Russell Brand on his “Stay Free” program.

Even mainstream media figures are taking notice. Stella was on Piers Morgan’s show, where she demolished pro-war extremist John Bolton. (Shout out to Defending Rights & Dissent for the clip.)

Stella’s in-depth interview with author Jordan Peterson is approaching a quarter of a million views in just a few days!

There’s more in the works, so stay tuned.
