Julian Assange is due to address his supporters from the Ecuadorean embassy in London, marking six months since he was granted asylum inside the building.
It will be the second time the WikiLeaks founder, who took refuge at the embassy in June, has delivered a message from the balcony.
He faces extradition to Sweden over sexual assault claims, which he denies.
Crowds are expected to gather outside the embassy in the Knightsbridge area to watch the speech.
Australian Mr Assange, 41 – whose Wikileaks website published a mass of leaked diplomatic cables embarrassing a number of countries – fears his extradition could lead to him being sent to the US and punished for releasing top secret documents.
