TEDGlobal: Why The World Needs WikiLeaks by Julian Assange

Geschreven op 19-7-2010 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Communicatie Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

TEDThe controversial website WikiLeaks collects and posts highly classified documents and video.

Founder Julian Assange, who’s reportedly being sought for questioning by US authorities, talks to TED’s Chris Anderson about how the site operates, what it has accomplished — and what drives him.

The interview includes graphic footage of a recent US airstrike in Baghdad.


WikiLeaks is currently under heavy attack. In order to make it impossible to ever fully remove WikiLeaks from the Internet, you will find below a list of mirrors of WikiLeaks website and CableGate pages. If you want to add your mirror to the list, see this Mass Mirroring WikiLeaks page. Wikileaks is currently mirrored on 1885 sites (updated 2010-12-12 11:54 GMT)

    Julian Assange: Worst WikiLeaks cables yet to come

    The man behind WikiLeaks says his website’s revelations are just the tip of the iceberg. In an exclusive interview with RT, Julian Assange said it is only a matter of time before more damaging information becomes known. The publication of confidential cables proved deeply embarrassing for the US and other countries. “If we look at our work over the last 12 moths, think about that. All these stories that have come out actually happened in the world, before 2010, but people didn’t know about it. So what is it that we don’t know about now? There’s an enormous hidden world out there that we don’t know about. It exists there right now.” Assange claims the data released by WikiLeaks is not even the most important and calls on people not to believe that the information they receive from the media is all that is happening. “We only released secret, classified, confidential material. We didn’t have any top secret cables. The really embarrassing stuff, the really serious stuff wasn’t in our collection to release. But it is still out there.”

    Wikileaks reveals Arctic could be the new cold war

    Submarine explorers planting Russian flags under the North Pole. Military tension between NATO and Russia. US diplomats manoeuvring in the wings. Aircraft carriers lurking and strike fighters changing hands. Sound like something from a James Bond plot? Unfortunately it’s not.

    New Wikileaks releases today have shown the Arctic oil rush is not just a threat to the environment and our climate, but also to peace. The documents show how deadly serious the scramble for Arctic resources has become.

    And the terrible irony of it is that instead of seeing the melting of the Arctic ice cap as a spur to action on climate change, the leaders of the Arctic nations are instead investing in military hardware to fight for the oil beneath it. They’re preparing to fight to extract the very fossil fuels that caused the melting in the first place. It’s like putting out fire with gasoline. Source: Greenpeace International

    BBC Newsnight reports on fresh Wikileaks cables which show how countries are scrambling over the resources hidden under the melting Arctic ice – which is disappearing at unprecedented rates. Military tensions are escalating as politicans and countries look to carve out their stake.

    FRONTLINE: Preview “WikiSecrets” by PBS

    It’s the biggest intelligence breach in U.S. history—the leaking of more than half-a-million classified documents on the WikiLeaks website in the spring of 2010. Behind it all, stand two very different men: Julian Assange, the Internet activist and hacker who published the documents, and an Army intelligence analyst named Bradley E. Manning, who’s currently charged with handing them over. Private Manning allegedly leaked the secret cables—along with a controversial video—in the hope of inciting “worldwide discussion, debates and reforms.” Assange’s stated mission has been to force the U.S. and other governments into maximum transparency through his whistle-blowing website. Through in-depth interviews with Manning’s father, Assange, and others close to the case, veteran FRONTLINE correspondent Martin Smith tells the full story behind the leaks. He also reports on the U.S. government’s struggle to protect national security information in a post 9/11 world. Source: PBS

    Full Coverage: “WikiSecrets” by PBS Chapter 1 to 5.

    On 24 May, 2011, 9pm EST, PBS-Frontline will air a documentary “WikiSecrets”. WikiLeaks has had intelligence for some time that the program is hostile and misrepresents WikiLeaks’ views and tries to build an “espionage” case against its founder, Julian Assange, and also the young soldier, Bradley Manning.

    In accordance with our tradition of “scientific journalism” (full primary sources) we release here our, behind the scenes, interview tape between Julian Assange & PBS Frontline’s Martin Smith which was recorded on 4/4/2011. In the tape, Assange scolds Martin Smith for his previous coverage of Bradley Manning and addresses a number of issues surrounding the 1917 Espionage Act investigation into WikiLeaks and Bradley Manning.

    The Frontline documentary will include footage of a number of individuals who have a collective, and very dirty personal vendetta, against the organization. These include David Leigh, Adrian Lamo, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, Eric Schmitt and Kim Zetter. While the program filmed other sources, such as Vaughan Smith who provided a counter-narrative, these more credible voices have been excluded from the program presented to the US public.

    WikiLeaks: War, Lies, and Videotape

    This hard-hitting film investigates the website that has given rise to one of the greatest controversies of the last decade.

    WikiLeaks is an international non-profit organization that publishes submissions of private, secret, and classified media from anonymous news sources and news leaks. In late 2010, the website created controversy by publishing hundreds of thousands of classified U.S. Diplomatic cables and Military documents.

    From the site’s inception through to the current conspiracy allegations, this revealing documentary follows the story of the charismatic founder of the website and new enemy #1 of the Pentagon, Julian Assange.

    Directed by award winning investigative reporters Paul Moreira and Luc Hermann from the French press agency Premières Lignes, the film travels to London, Washington, Reykjavik, and Paris to meet the WikiLeaks journalists and hackers who are fighting for transparency and are challenging the all-encompassing rules of Military secrecy.

    The film includes an interview with former #2 and spokesperson of the WikiLeaks team Daniel Domscheit-Berg, before he opens his own whistleblowing website and publishes a novel about “his time at the world’s most dangerous website”. Daniel is now a “dissident” after quitting the company. His claim is that the organization is too centered on the figure of Julian Assange and that there was a rush to unleash big news stories in lieu of steadily building up the organization.

    WikiLeaks suing Visa & Mastercard

    WikiLeaks sent out a press release through its twitter page saying that the credit card companies have been engaging in a US-backed financial blockade, and then it explains that it’s suing Visa and Mastercard. And in a recent interview with CNet, Mastercard stood by its original reasoning stating that “company rules prohibit customers from directly or indirectly engaging in or facilitating any action that is illegal.”

    Julian Assange asks court to block extradition in sex case

    WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange has asked an appeals court to block his extradition to Sweden from the United Kingdom to face questioning on sexual misconduct allegations.

    Lawyers for Assange told the court Tuesday that the European arrest warrant on which their client is being held was not a “fair and accurate description” of the facts of the case.

    Occupy Assange: ‘Corrupt banks, corrupt cash’

    The founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, attended the protests in London that are part of a worldwide action against corporate greed and austerity measures. Assange said that he was there to show his solidarity with the Occupy London movement, which was inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protests in the US. Assange traveled to London from his friend Vaughan Smith’s country mansion in Suffolk, eastern England. Assange is living there on bail as he fights extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over allegations of rape and sexual assault made by two women.

    WikiLeaks Wins Major Australian Journalism Prize

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange accepted the award for Most Outstanding Contribution to Journalism at the 2011 Walkley Award in Australia, an honor akin to the Pulitzer Prize in the United States. Democracy Now! airs an excerpt from Assange’s acceptance speech and gets reaction from constitutional law attorney and blogger Glenn Greenwald. Today also marks the one-year anniversary of “Cable Gate,” when WikiLeaks began publishing a trove of more than 250,000 leaked U.S. State Department cables. In related news, the U.S. Army recently scheduled a Dec. 16 pretrial hearing for Army Private Bradley Manning, the soldier accused of providing the cables to WikiLeaks. Manning “faces life in prison, possibly the death penalty, for what was an act of conscience,” says Greenwald.
