Wikileaks suspends ops to launch pledge drive: “(The Register)
Wikileaks has temporarily suspended operations while it launches a pledge drive. The whistle blowing site is taking time out to ask for support in many forms, not just donations. Wikileaks is appealing for help from volunteer coders, offers of free legal assistance and hosting support as well as cash donations. The site has promised not to accept corporate or government finance in order to protect its integrity. As an incentive to potential supporters Wikileaks said it is sitting on ‘hundreds of thousands of pages from corrupt banks, the US detainee system, the Iraq war, China, the UN and many others that we do not currently have the resources to release’.
