Support wikileaks

Many may not know but Wikileaks is facing resistance from all quarters under political pressure. Mastercard, Visa and Paypal have closed Wikileaks' account and thus stopped the flow of donations from people to Wikileaks. Many banks have frozen their accounts. The website is being blocked in various countries and made target by various hacker groups. Most companies arent ready to provide hosting or domain to the website and Wikileaks articles are being taken off from many websites.

When governments are showing their political might and indulging in cyber warfare and blocking Wikileaks and its accounts isnt it time that the actual users of Internet raise protest against it?

Having seen the real face of Media in our own country (India) IT IS TIME to support an organisation like Wikileaks.

A message from the Wikileaks petition

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!

300,000 reached in first 24 hours! More than 355,000 have signed the petition.

Will you?

Sign the petition HERE and dont forget to spread the message.


PS: I am not a big supporter of Online petitions but this specific one is from the Wikileaks itself. The link is from the official Wikileaks account on Twitter. You can check the About Us section of "" where the petition is hosted to see what has been the effect of earlier campaigns by Avaaz.
