Free Julian Assange activists took action outside Prime Minister Anthony Albanese's Marrickville office on May 26 and asked him to “Make Julian Assange’s freedom top priority”.

While in opposition, Albanese told a Labor caucus meeting in February last year that “enough was enough” and “I don't have sympathy for many of his actions but essentially I can't see what is served by keeping him incarcerated”.

The ABC approached Albanese after the election but a Labor spokesperson said he could not comment at this stage.

Free Assange activists said they will continue to campaign for Assange to be released from Belmash prison and be allowed to return to Australia.
