Julian Heicklen Expatriates

News has broken today that fully informed jury activist Julian Heicklen has fled the country to avoid a pending warrant out of Santa Ana, California, where he is wanted yet again for distributing educational fliers on the rights of jurors. On May 22, Julian is said to have been granted Israeli citizenship at customs. It is unclear whether the eighty year old pamphleteering pioneer plans on returning to the United States. Freedoms Phoenix has the story.

  1. My first thoughts were :he went from fighter for freedom to “run away from the problem person” . Which is a pretty big fall; which is a huge fall.
    But he fought and he’s OLD and he shouldn’t be in jail for his last years ,but then winning in court and putting the absurdity on display via court is part of it .
    Oh well, he did his thing ;he shined and the baton is being passed.
    Thanks Julian ; you RULE!

  2. (i dont mean “rule”in the oppressive fascists way or whatever..i mean rule in the ,awesome,great example for us all, real life superhero way ) obviously šŸ™‚
    It’s really disappointing that he has to leave though..Here we had a man in his LATER years in life,getting man handled-beat up – by the police ;fighting for the little people really…. The voiceless … A man fighting for JUSTICE and NOT the “JUST US” kind but the kind that is spoken of and held on high in so many USA founding documents .
    And now he has to flea to avoid jail ;because he doesn’t want to spend his end years in jail.
    …. Thanks Julian .
    P.S,..just do a fk Julian Heicklen search or a youtube Julian Heicklen search you will see

  4. I don’t think he actually left. He is in Israel but it’s for family/personal reasons. At least that’s what he told me a few weeks ago when we handed out fliers in Manhattan. He’s known for being hyperbolic in his Progress Reports. I suspect this is no different. We’ll see.

  6. oh . thats good

  7. The problem is unless you follow the liberty movement no one knows who he is. He does great activism and is so courageous but he just does not get the big media coverage. Any ideas out there on how to get more media coverage if Julian returns?

  8. Turns out I was half right. He has moved to Israel but he hasn’t given up his US citizenship. I’m heading to Israel this week and hope to see him. Hopefully I find out more details but… in summary he said that he doesn’t want to live in the US while “Hitler is in office” meaning while someone who supports the NDAA is in the Oval Office.

    I do know he had personal business in Israel in the past year so I suspect that has something to do with it.
