We present our new leaflet which we have begun to distribute throughout the Chicagoland area as of today, November 27, 2012. If you’d like to get involved in our campaign to expose the crimes of the US government and its war on whistleblowers, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
JOIN FRIENDS OF WIKILEAKS – CHICAGO!
Help defend those courageous people who to risk the destruction of their careers and long prison sentences in order to bring to light the vast number of crimes committed by the US government and military, US espionage agencies, US corporations and their agents and co-conspirators. Join Friends of WikiLeaks and help dissipate the fog of apathy that enshrouds the minds of workers and students in the US today!
The US Government and its agencies commit crimes all over the world in order to further the interests of the US’ capitalist class, whose greed and willingness to kill for profits knows no bounds – as the long, bloody history of US imperialism proves beyond a shadow of doubt. From the genocide of the Native Americans to the slave trade to the destruction of worker and peasant revolutionary movements from the Phillippines to El Salvador, to the genocidal wars in Korea and Vietnam, from Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the bombing of Dresden to the murders of 1.5 million Iraqis and tens of thousands of civilians in Afghanistan, one thing is clear: the US capitalist class is the most dangerous force opposing the advancement of world civilization today. They are armed to the teeth and ready – and more than willing – to kill as many people as they believe is necessary to continue the domination of US capitalism – which represents just 6% of the world’s population – over the rest of the world. And they do everything possible to carry out these crimes under cover of “top secret” designations to hide their crimes from exposure to the world – including silencing those who dare to expose them.
Every year, heroic people from all walks of life and from all over the world, having become aware of crimes committed by the US government and the agents of the US capitalist class, risk their lives in order to inform the working class of the US and the world of the brutal realities behing the US Government’s phony “democratic” and “human rights” facade. These heroic workers and soldiers – like the handful of folks at WikiLeaks and Bradley Manning – have been the sole means by which the working class of the United States has learned of such things as:
The CIA’s cloak and dagger operations and overthrows of foreign governments and assassinations of foreign leaders;
The existence of Israel’s nuclear arsenal;
The savage, bloody reality behind the US State Department’s “diplomatic” efforts;
The horrors of the Secret Prison system run by the CIA;
The systematic dehumanization of US youth who are recruited into the US military, where they are trained to become heartless killers of men, women and children;
and much more.
All too often, these heroic whistleblowers are driven to poverty by the legal costs of defending themselves from government prosecution for the alleged “crime” of keeping the world informed of the truth about what their governments are up to. What Friends of WikiLeaks seeks to do is to raise awareness of every case in which heroic folks like Bradley Manning and Julian Assange are framed up by the US Government and faced with years of torture or even execution for exposing the endemic criminality of the capitalist system.
Friends of WikiLeaks needs your help to defend those who risk everything to allow us to know what the US Government is up to. We need your help to:
CREATE AWARENESS of the truth behind the whistleblower cases facing prosecution by governments who want to be allowed to commit crimes without any oversight at all;
BUILD NATIONWIDE PROTEST MOVEMENTS capable of responding immediately whenever these cases require it, protesting at government offices, embassies, and courthouses;
RAISE MONEY for legal defense efforts to free those heroic men and women when they are attacked by the government for daring to expose “secret” criminal operations undertaken by government agencies and operatives;
GET INVOLVED in political action to fight for a future world where war, torture and human rights violations can no longer exist.
JOIN FRIENDS OF WIKILEAKS – CHICAGO! APATHY IN THE FACE OF GOVERNMENT AND CORPORATE CRIMINALITY AND MASS MURDER WILL LEAD TO FASCISM AND WORLD WAR THREE!
