WikiLeaks, a free press publishing and media organisation, has revealed human rights abuses, war crimes and corruption in governments across the world. Yet the US Administration wants to close WikiLeaks down and prosecute its founder Julian Assange. International financial services organisations have blocked payments to WikiLeaks, denying them vital income. The Australian government has failed to take a stand against the political persecution of Assange. PM Gillard’s assertion that WikiLeaks activities were illegal was proved to be false by an Australian Federal Police investigation.
What does this say about our democracy?
