Washington, DC— Article 13(2) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights provides that "Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and return to his country"*
Former Broadway actor and B-17 bomber pilot in WWII, Garry Davis, as both a stateless person and declared World Citizen, has acknowledged and claimed, both for himself and all citizens of the world, the rights defined by that declaration, declared unanimously December 10, 1948 by the assembled United Nations delegates under the chairmanship of Eleanor Roosevelt.
Producer of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, having claimed and been granted asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in order to prevent his arbitrary deportation to Sweden by the British government maintains that from Sweden he would then be arbitrarily forced to the United States to face certain imprisonment.
The World Service Authority, executive and administrative agency of the World Citizen Government founded by Davis in 1953, has therefore issued to Julian Assange an Honorary World Passport today as a practical symbol of his right to travel freely throughout the planet. (See below)
Threats by UK government officials to revoke the immunity status of the Ecuadorian Embassy has provoked furious worldwide reaction against UK officials which in the final analysis involves Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as Head of State responsible to the United Nations as signatory, as well as established diplomatic protocol between alleged sovereign states . (See enclosed letter)
*Since December 10, 1948, the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights "as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations…"and "to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the people of Member States themselves and among the people of territories under their jurisdiction,"

This letter encloses our Press Release of August 17th with regard to the issuance of an Honorary World Passport to Julian Assange.
We are obliged to point out that the threat by Your Servants to abrogate long-established protocols with regard to sovereign immunity of states ultimately implicates Your Majesty as Head of State vis-à-vis the United Nations and its official resolutions, the most important concerning the world's citizens, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
That there exists a fundamental contradiction between certain laws between states and the grant of immunity by all states with regard to embassies and consulates is apparent in the present instance. For United Kingdom officials to threaten to annul the immunity of the Ecuadorian Embassy in order to seize a citizen of another state who has been granted asylum from persecution in accordance with Article 14, Section 1, UDHR is, in itself, a violation of agreements between states confirmed by treaties.
Today our government has issued to Julian Assange a World Passport mandated by Article 13(2) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to which Your Government is duly subject as of December 10, 1948.
As this writer once petitioned Your Majesty to honor the UDHR with regard to Article 23, the right to work, so I consider it my duty as well as my right, on behalf of the citizens of the world, to enjoin your sanction in the present instance which has duly merited the attention of the world public.
I remain, Madam, your obedient and humble servant in one world,
World Government of World Citizens
