Wikileaks is one of the most important, if not THE most important organization in terms of publishing failures in governments and big companies that regard the public. By doing this they help traditional news organisations maintain their work and take some pressure of them.
Within the last weeks there has been put a whole lot of pressure on them from various organizations and governments. To name only the happenings from last week:
- http://wikileaks.org/ set offline (http://wikileaks.ch/ is the main address now)
- Amazon closed their account they used to outsource some computer power in the amazon cloud.
- OpenDNS stopped forwarding the Wikileaks url.
- Paypal closed the Wikileaks donation account
- England wants to arrest Wikileaks main speaker Julia Assange.
- Swiss bank closes Julian Assange’s bank account.
If Wikileaks is to be expected to keep up their work, they need both emotional and financial support. This is why I myself just transfered 15€ to their bank account.
