The list of WikiLeaks Mirrors, and a new donate to WikiLeaks option, is at the bottom of this post.

Show the U.S. Government and the world that you support WikiLeaks, integrity, honesty and information transparency, and that you expect the U.S. Government to deal honestly with the issues raised by WikiLeaks releases.

Embed the WikiLeaks logo on your blog or site linking to this list of WikiLeaks mirror sites, to help a bit with pressuring the U.S. Administration to back off on Julian Assange and deal with the issues he raises rather than the man.

Mary Ann Wright is a former United States Army colonel and retired official of the U.S. State Department, known for her outspoken opposition to the Iraq War. She is most noted for having been one of three State Department officials to publicly resign in direct protest of the March 2003 invasion of Iraq. (wikipedia)

"We were told as diplomats, 'Don't ever put anything in a cable you wouldn't want on the front page of a newspaper.' It shows that they're a lot of arrogant people, that the system itself wasn't checking itself," says Wright of the latest documents released from WikiLeaks.

Meanwhile, several of the diplomatic cables released depict possibly illegal actions by the U.S. government, and Wright notes that the chances of anyone being held accountable are slim.

Ann Wright joined Laura Flanders of GritTV to discuss the latest releases from WikiLeaks, what they tell us about the U.S. Government and Defense and State departments, and what should happen, but probably won't, to the people implicated therein.

Although WikiLeaks has had problems since the latest release with hacking, denial of service attacks, web hosts closing their sites down, and domain name registrars pulling their domain name, you can always get to their site by navigating to any of the WikiLeaks mirror sites listed below:

The mirrors listed on this page are the main domains registered by WikiLeaks in the countries shown. (note that the ip's may change unexpectedly)

The full list of more than 1400 up to date WikiLeaks mirror sites is under the Mirrors tab on each of the sites listed below...

Julian Assange: Why the world needs WikiLeaks
TedGlobal2010, Filmed July 2010

Although Visa, MasterCard and PayPal have all shut down electronic donations to WikiLeaks, and Swiss bank PostFinance issued a statement announcing that it had frozen 31,000 euro ($41,000 US) in an account set up as a legal defense fund for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, there is a new option if you wish to support WikiLeaks financially...

Mobile payments firm Xipwire, Inc. steps up to aid WikiLeaks
By Stephen C. Webster
RawStory, Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

The Philadelphia, PA-based mobile payments firm Xipwire, Inc. said Tuesday that it would act as an intermediary for WikiLeaks after the world's largest credit card providers halted all electronic donations to the non-profit media outlet.

"We do think people should be able to make their own decisions as to who they donate to," Xipwire co-founder Sibyl Lindsay told Raw Story during a Tuesday afternoon telephone interview. "The fact that people can't donate to where they'd like to and make that decision for themselves does bother us."

The company has set up a page where WikiLeaks supporters can donate, saying it will waive all related fees.

"Our motivation is really simple," Xipwire founder Sharif Aleandre explained in an email. "While people may or may not agree with WikiLeaks and the documents it has released, we feel that PayPal's recent decision to refuse to process donations on their behalf effectively silences voices in this democracy. In fact, it was the Citizens United case that basically equated donations with free speech and if the Supreme Court decided that our government doesn't have the power to regulate that speech then it's our opinion that corporations certainly shouldn't have that power either."

Lindsay added that WikiLeaks supporters would be able to donate either via their website, or via text message if they have a Xipwire account.

Current Xipwire users can text WL to 56624 to make a $10 pledge. Non-account holders who contact the number will receive a link to a page where donations can be made.

Xipwire accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover
and Debit Cards

Donations to WikiLeaks can also be made on the WikiLeaks website through the Donate link at the top of the sidebar.

“What we have here is a new breed of rebels, IT guerrillas without a national base.”

Finally, in response to globalized eco-destruction, globalized wars, and globalized banking that robs national and personal wealth, we now have globalized resistance so profound, so effective, that global elites are waging a massive censorship campaign to silence the group, WikiLeaks, and smear its figurehead, Julian Assange.

Sweden’s public service television, SVT, is about to broadcast a deeply-moving, one-hour documentary chronicling the history of WikiLeaks, after having followed the crew for six months. An uninterrupted rough cut of the film can be viewed here until December 13. Though the film arrives in the midst of questionable rape charges, with Assange currently in custody, the story has timely relevance with global interest in him and his website.
