Defend Freedom Of Information
Although there is full scale hacking war taking place online Supporters of Wikileaks are now taking to the streets worldwide. Hundreds of people gathered outside the British embassy in Madrid calling for Julian Assange to be freed. In Bristol there was a lively peace vigil and the BBC reported 1000 outside westminster magistrate’s court in London.
The vicious intimidation campaign against WikiLeaks is a dangerous attack on freedom of expression and the press. Top US politicians have branded WikiLeaks a terrorist organization, and urged corporations to shut it down. Commentators have even suggested assassinating its staff. We urgently need a massive public outcry to defend our basic democratic freedoms.
