Defend WikiLeaks

A major international movement has emerged campaigning to defend the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks, and its founder Julian Assange, from attacks by governments and business. There will be rallies around the country and around the world.

See the Socialist Alliance media release and more information in Green Left Weekly here, here and here among other places.

In Perth, the most effective action that can be taken at the moment is to bring "Defend WikiLeaks" placards to the Human Rights rally on Friday:
