Hello Chicago! Welcome to the Friends of WikiLeaks blog – your one-stop shop for all things WikiLeaks! Thrilling, isn’t it?
We are calling on all supporters of WikiLeaks in the Chicagoland area to contact us and get a major support organization together to work on a WikiLeaks defense campaign right here in Chicago.
Julian Assange and WikiLeaks have done the world an enormous benefit by providing a secure whistleblower site to facilitate the dissemination of “classified” corporate and government information that is being kept secret for the sole purpose of covering up the crimes of the United States government and its allies and corporations who are raping the planet and brutally exploiting the workers of the world.
We support the work of WikiLeaks, and to promote and educate on the good they have done. Also to make sure that if the United States Government ever gets its hands on Julian Assange and brings him here to the US for trial, we bring out US workers in his defense. We will also make every effort to raise funds for Wikileaks for the cost of running their organization as well as for the defense of Bradley Manning, and those like him who stand accused of “stealing state secrets” and giving them to WikiLeaks. As far as we’re concerned, if Mr. Manning did so, it was not a crime but was in fact a tremendous service on behalf of the entire world.
We know that there are thousands of people in the Chicagoland area who would love to work on this issue. Contact us! If you already have a group at your college that is involved in this work, let us know! Use this site to spread the word about your groups and let’s get together to coordinate our efforts. We will have an email account for our group very soon and will post it up here. As soon as we get some people interested, we will arrange local and on-campus meetings to get the ball rolling.
