This Day in WikiLeaks was created on November 8, 2011 as a daily blog for news related to WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, Bradley Manning, and other matters of transparency, whistleblowing, and surveillence. It's mission is to create an accessible, regular, and accurate source for WikiLeaks news. Daily updates are scheduled for 12:00AM London Time, but is subject to change due to personal responsibilities.
Although WikiLeaks was created in 2006, it became world renowned in 2010 after the release of Collateral Murder. WikiLeaks continues releasing material to this day, with The Syria Files being its most recent. Currently, we see the organisation in the middle of many legal struggles, including an unlawful economic blockade and the threat of U.S. prosecution. The outcome of these issues will set an important precedent regarding the potential criminilisation of publishing and journalism.
This Day in WikiLeaks not only provides daily updates, but also serves as a searchable archive for past news.
As a note, the day counters at the top of posts account for the following day (e.g. if the post is September 1, the counter will represent September 2). This is because the posts are submitted after midnight.
