Attacks on Wikileaks threaten freedom of the press

For Immediate Release:
Thursday, December 9, 2010



Attacks on Wikileaks threaten freedom of the press, enable government
officials to commit crimes with impunity

• Green Party Speakers Bureau: Greens available to speak on civil
liberties and the US Constitution:

WASHINGTON, DC -- Green Party leaders called the attacks on Wikileaks
by the US government a direct and deliberate assault on the First
Amendment's guarantee of freedom of the press.

"The war on Wikileaks may set a precedent for the treatment of
journalists who expose government wrong-doing," said Carl Romanelli of
the Pennsylvania Green Party.  "While the US government has
increasingly operated outside of US constitutional and international
law, Wikileaks' actions would not be called a crime in a free and open
society."

Greens expressed dismay and outrage over the decision of companies
like Amazon, Pay Pal, MasterCard, and Visa, as well as several
Internet hosting companies, to cooperate with US government demands
for censorship.

Greens listed several reasons to defend Wikileaks:

• There is no proof that Wikileaks has broken the law, and no criminal
charges have been filed.

• Reporters and media organizations like Wikileaks that expose 'top
secret' documents showing evidence of criminality deserve praise and
support, not condemnation.  The Wikileaks cables revealed secret US
military operations in Yemen that killed dozens of Yemenis (previously
denied by Obama officials), orders from the US State Department for
personnel to steal personal information from UN officials and human
rights groups, manipulation of Britain's Iraq inquiry to protect US
interests, pressure from Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah for the US to
launch an attack on Iran, and many other examples of information that
the American public and the world deserve to know.

• Despite warnings that Wikileaks has endangered military personnel
and individuals in Afghanistan working with the US, publication of the
cables has resulted in no known deaths.  On the other hand, US
operations in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and Yemen have caused the
deaths of countless civilians.

• The demand by politicians in the US and abroad for Julian Assange to
be hunted down and executed, without due process, demonstrates why
media organizations like Wikileaks are vitally necessary.  The Bush
Administration authorized prolonged detention without due process,
denial of habeas corpus, extraordinary rendition and torture,
warrantless surveillance of US citizens, harassment of whistleblowers,
and false justifications for war.  The Obama White House has
maintained most of these policies and refuses to prosecute Bush
officials who approved torture, including President Bush himself.  The
Green Party supports the rule of constitutional law -- as should every
American -- and therefore welcomes the Wikileaks revelations detailing
official abuses of power.

• The calls for legal action against Wikileaks, a small media
organization, are cowardly and hypocritical, since no such calls have
been made for legal action against The New York Times, The Guardian,
Der Spiegel, and other major corporate media that have published the
cables.  Furthermore, the published cables were redacted by Wikileaks
to protect innocent individuals.

• In the context of recent attempts in Congress to undermine net
neutrality and impose corporate and/or government control in the US
over access to the Internet, the attempts to block public access to
the Wikipedia logs represents a dangerous step towards censorship.
