WikiLeaks is a multi-national media organisation and associated library. It was founded by its publisher Julian Assange in 2006.
WikiLeaks specialises in the analysis and publication of large datasets of censored or otherwise restricted official materials involving war, spying and corruption. It has so far published more than 10 million documents and associated analyses.
“WikiLeaks is a giant library of the world’s most persecuted documents. We give asylum to these documents, we analyze them, we promote them and we obtain more.” – Julian Assange said in an interview with Der Spiegel.
The work of WikiLeaks has faced backlash from established authorities in the US resulting in an indictment against their publisher Julian Assange for their publishing work. He was arrested on 11th of April 2019 and imprisoned in maximum security prison HMP Belmarsh in London. The US Department of Justice has laid out charges against him with a potential 175 years imprisonment under Special Administration Measures. We stand in solidarity with Julian Assange through his ordeal.
