WikiLeaks - needs help

"WikiLeaks is a website that publishes anonymous submissions and leaks of sensitive governmental, corporate, or religious documents, while attempting to preserve the anonymity and untraceability of its contributors. Within one year of its December 2006 launch, its database had grown to more than 1.2 million documents." [1]

Wikileaks is currently overloaded by readers. This is a regular difficulty that can only be resolved by deploying additional resources. If you support our mission, then show it in the way that is most needed. On average, each donation catalyzes the publication of around 150 mainstream press articles, exposing human rights abuses and corrupt government around the world. These exposures result in substantial reforms and have changed national election outcomes.

Here's a rare interview with some of those involved (click).

  1. I'll definitely have to check this site out. I'm interested to know what waits around the corner. Speaking of exposés, have you heard of PoliceBrutality.info? That site is dedicated to informing people about different cases of police brutality around the world. I think that's another great resource to have.
