WikiLeaks News:

  • WikiLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson commented on Dreamworks’ upcoming WikiLeaks film saying: 
    • “If the film reflects what is written in those books, it will provide a negative view of WikiLeaks with limited impartiality. Hollywood is not exactly the best reflection of contemporary history. I don’t believe WikiLeaks or Julian has been contacted by Dreamworks, but I don’t expect any courtesy from any organisation within Hollywood.”
  • WikiLeaks tweeted out the following comments about anti-WikiLeaks troll accounts on Twitter: 
    • “Followers: please do not engage with PR company run, or otherwise incentivised, anti-WikiLeaks “troll” accounts. In the case of the professional anti-WikiLeaks accounts, your engagement is used to demonstrate work. In the case of those that are run by marginalised people looking for favours from our opponents, your engagement is like a direct injection of opiates. Be proactive, not reactive. You must be the troll. Seek to engage people with at least four times as many followers as yourself – find mutual interest between their concerns and ours. Or publicly debate those who are irrevokably hostile but well known. Troll UP. Instead of complaining about PR company trolls, be the “troll” you want to see in the world. Engage, provoke and debate in a positive way.”

Julian Assange News:

  • This week’s Green Left Report focused on Christine Assange discussing her son, WikiLeaks, and the issues with mainstream media and the Australian Government.
Bradley Manning News:
  • Until January 1st, donations to Bradley Manning’s defense fund will be tripled, thanks to two gracious donors who have agreed to match donations.
