Founder of Wikileaks asks for financial help

Wikileaks founder, the australian reporter Julian Assange sent this letter to partners and global community in general. He asks financial help to stand the costs of his legal representation. According to him, the prosecution started in Sweden, leave him at risk of arrest in U.K, since Interpol theoretically hunts him with maximum interest.

Although Scotland Yard confirmed that they know his exact location, they did not act. Some people think the threat of publishing top secret documents of a powerful, and unknown, American bank may be the reasons behind this threat. Assange has confirmed to have very relevant material with him. In the past days the Wikileaks site has offered an encripted doomsday packet supposedly containing this information. He claims he will publish in case of death or arrest.

For those interested in helping,  the Wikileaks Foundation has a web-page offering various ways to donate.

Dear ***,

As you may have heard I am facing arrest in the United Kingdom in relation to extradition attempts by Sweden and probably the US.

If this happens I will be stuck in solitary confinement during my defence unless I can raise the necessary funds for bail and representation.

I am reaching out to you in regard to this matter and I am also looking at support to defend our other WikiLeak people.

If you can assist or you know someone who could please contact me here or my solicitor Jennifer Robinson (jennifer.robinson@fsilaw.com +44(0)75 8452 9148 or +44(0)78 3111 5000) of Finers Stephens Innocent LLP.

Hope you can help,

Julian

    Help fundraising for Wikileaks in a fun way: arrange a cake meeting (or a soup meeting), with for example 10£ or 10$ entrance fee and donate the money to Wikileaks. The arranger of the cake meeting offers cakes and sweets, while the guests spend the evening discussing Wikileaks and talking for example about how it works, what they have acheived sofar, the present situation, what is possible to do et c. End the meeting by donating the cash to Wikileaks via one of the options on the Wikileaks homepage. I’m just about to arrange my
    first cake meeting myself… Spread the idea, and invite your friends.
