Nothing to add - yet
This is the first time we have seen an attempt at the international community level to censor a website dedicated to the principle of transparency. We are shocked to find countries such as France and the United States suddenly bringing their policies on freedom of expression into line with those of China. We point out that in France and the United States, it is up to the courts, not politicians, to decide whether or not a website should be closed.

Assange and his fellows are fighting a gallant non-violent struggle on behalf of everyone who values freedom of speech and a fair, open society. They have struck the the corrupted establishment a severe blow and will need all the help they can get for the coming repercussions.ReplyDelete

The Daily Mash - JUST BECAUSE WE'RE CRUSHING WIKILEAKS, IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU'RE NEXT, SAY GOVERNMENTS
you make me shudder ...
neither am I.
Ares falling in the hole 'digged' by himself - what a wonderful picture!
please look above. :)
they are getting help.
At the time I am writing this WikiLeaks claims to be 'hosted at 507 locations, planet wide'.
thanks for that.
Didn't they forget a 'not'? :)
It's interesting how coordinated the governments are in their attack on Assange and Wikileaks. Moreover, if there are any dissenting agencies who oppose the attack, they are not speaking very loud.ReplyDelete
We live in interesting times. There's a useful collection of commentary about WikiLeaks on TheAtlantic.com.ReplyDelete
welcome to Omnium.
Yes the reactions somehow are even more interesting. Q.e.d.? :)
very interesting. And not surprised I'd be, were they to become even more interesting.
Thanks for the useful link.
