Seems like right after the yearly christian holidays the Wikileaks plate is being re-heated. A subpoena has been issued asking Twitter to provide certain information to the United States Department of Justice. This seems like a way of propagating fear and intimidation towrds anyone with any kind of link or support towards Wikileaks.
(way) Better writers than me have posted good articles here:
- Iceland blasts US demand for lawmaker's details in WikiLeaks probe
- The Excuse is Wikileaks the Object is Freedom of Speech the Subject is Authoritarianism
- The Number of Wikileaks Supporters will only Increase
A group has started organising protests in Spain and is calling for others to organise events in other countries -> Free Wikileaks (dot EU)
One of the Twitter accounts targeted is that of Birgitta Jónsdóttir, there are a few others.
