More details
Wikileaks is a non-profit project, sponsored by transparency groups and investigative journalists that defends human rights and freedom of speech in every country--including yours!

Wikileaks is the original source of many of the major stories you hear about in the press exposing corruption or injustice, from Guantanamo bay and assassinations in East Timor, down to your local political party and council.

Comments on this pledge

  • "Let the people know the facts, and the country will be safe." Pres. Abraham Lincoln.

    While freedom of information is under assault around the World wikileaks offers a growing speck of light at the end of the tunnel. I firmly believe that if it is supported through its early life it will become one of the most important forces for freedom of information and open government ever created.

  • Wikileaks is worth more than gold!!
    It is a necessity..
    Daniel Wadsworth, 12 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • Wikileaks is something we desperately need to keep alive. Unlike other items of the digital world, it is a force that affects things around it. It creates momentum, driving forward the revolution we so desperately need.

    Wikileaks is a partisan flame to scorch away the oppressive and the corrupt, and it must not be stopped.
    Isak Ström, 12 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • “I understand. The fact that you won't explain . . . explains everything.” (The Prisoner)
    Chris Watts, 12 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • We need to know. That you are prepared to go to considerable effort at significant risk to inform us makes that information all the more valuable. I am not alone in being grateful for your efforts.
