On WikiLeaks:

On Julian Assange:
  • An Australian short film "Julian," about Julian Assange as a young boy, won the main prize for short film at the Berlin Film Festival. (Note: This is the only article about the film that mentions it being based on Assange, so I cannot confirm whether it is or is not inspired by him.)

On Bradley Manning:
  • Jerry White, the SEP candidate for the US presidency, has called for the immediate release of Bradley Manning.
