Wikileaks: Friend or foe?

American Libertarian Ron Paul was recently quoted about Wikileaks as saying: “In a free society we’re supposed to know the truth. In a society where truth becomes treason, then we’re in big trouble. And now, people who are revealing the truth are getting into trouble for it.”

Alternatively, American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wikileaks’ actions were “an attack on the international community, the alliances and partnerships, the conventions and negotiations that safeguard global security and advance economic prosperity” and State Dept. Adviser Harold Koh says they “could place at risk the lives of countless innocent individuals” as well as “ongoing military operations”.

Whose right

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.

Whatever we think of WikiLeaks, legal experts say it has likely broken no laws, and the group works with leading newspapers (NYT, Guardian, Spiegel) to carefully vet what it publishes – so far less than 1% of the cables leaked to it.

We urgently need a massive public outcry to defend our basic democratic freedoms. Sign the petition to stop the crackdown — let’s reach 1 million voices this week!
