Yes, we Leak.

Free Bradley Manning
Free Julien Assange
Assange was arrested today and I got no key for my 1.4 gig insurance file. I am however hosting a ip-link to the cables ( http://213.251.145.96/cablegate ) and I’m almost ashamed to admit that, that is all I can do from here. For now.

I was going to write a short on the companies I’ll never do business with again, namely those that refused or refuted the wikipages to be associated with them, but the Guardian beat me to the punch.

Still, here they are:

  • ableau Software
  • Amazon
  • everyDNS.com
  • OVH, france (how can you be afraid of a little man like Sarkozy, for all intend and purposes he is a midget, I hate the French)
  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Postfinance
  • Paypal
  • Twitter (omitting trending topics, terrible bastards)

On the upside, these organisation are actively supporting the Leaks, so praise and joy be upon them (Google them if you want the links, you lazy fuck) :

  • Switch (Swiss)
  • The Pirate Party
  • The Guardian (yey!)

and in Holland:

  • E-dot, Byte and XS4ALL
  • Powned (mirror)
  • VPRO (mirror)
  • Geenstijl (mirror)

More important links here and of course here

Some random cables, I do have a day job, but these titles got my attention: “XXXXXXXXXXXXX”  catchy non? Referring to an article stating that the american government is acting on behalf on Google in China: 09BEIJING1336 . Google, which, I might add, has not censored any Wikileak pages from it’s index (or have they?)
Also this cable 08FREETOWN389; “COCAINE BUST: MINISTER OF TRANSPORTATION SACKED”, because Cocaine always gets my attention.

Ow , and here is a tip for journalists: use the fucking tag for a cable, so we know what you are talking about.

Another pro-tip: search cables here through the nifty cable search engine (beta)

Well now, with all that out of the way, I can go on about the importance of Wikileaks. And how freedom of information is essential to democracy. And what the old man has to say:

And whose live they would endanger (name one, Pentago. ONE. Then we’ll talk). And some other nuanced opinion on how diplomacy has to function partly on the basis of confidence and faith. And secrecy. But you are all Wrong! These documents show, that the flow of information is actively manipulated and we need to know how.

As Hidde quoted Jefferson:

“Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.”

~ Thomas Jefferson.

#UPDATE I don’t think I can get it more clear then this:
