This is very productive and totally gonna rally more support for Wikileaks. Everyone's gonna go "What? They attacked Master Card and crashed their site, because they're mad? They must be kind, caring people out to help the world. We should support them and their Wikileaks cause."

Quote:
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was arrested today in London, on charges unrelated to the leaked diplomatic cables released by his organization. (The arrest was arranged after he met voluntarily with police.) Assange is being accused of sexual assault under Swedish law, and currently working with his lawyers to fight extradition to Sweden.

Assange has been denied bail, in part because the judge thought he was a flight risk, and in part because the judge was worried for Assange's safety if he were released.

Here are some important things to know about Assange and Wikileaks right now:

Assange is not Wikileaks. His arrest doesn't mean Wikileaks will stop publishing. So far, only 301 of the roughly 250,000 diplomatic cables have been released.
The charges are dependent on national law. Not to downplay the seriousness of the charges against Assange, but they might not fall under the legal definition of sexual assault in some countries (although they certainly do in Sweden, where he's being charged). According to the BBC, "One of the charges is that he had unprotected sex with a woman, identified only as Miss A, when she insisted he use a condom. Another is that he had unprotected sex with another woman, Miss W, while she was asleep."
Wikileaks' web hosts in the US have dropped it, so it's now on Swiss servers. It's also being mirrored by hundreds of independent websites around the world.
Visa, Mastercard and PayPal have closed Wikileaks' accounts and refused all transactions involving Wikileaks. This cuts supporters off from donating. Also, PayPal has frozen £60,000 that had been donated to Assange's defense fund.
Anonymous, the group of sometimes-hackers associated with 4chan's /b/ board, has attacked PayPal and a Swiss bank that froze Assange's assets. They claim the total number of Wikileaks mirrors is now over 500.

I don't think so... D:

Maybe it's the part that she didn't agree to it that is the real charge.


It'd just be ridiculous if it was illegal to have unprotected sex. Then how would we make babies?

Marry the woman and have sex. Seems simple enough.

If she said no to sex without a condom and he continued anyway, then I'd call that rape.

Quote:
Yesterday, one of Assange's attorneys told Al-Jazeera that the United States had convened a secret grand jury in Virginia to consider criminal charges against Assange. This confirms what U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said last week about authorizing "significant" actions against Wikileaks.Meanwhile, Assange's supporters in Anonymous are battening down the hatches for a raid by international law enforcement. A poster originating on 711chan -- one of the 4chan-esque image boards frequented by some members of Anon -- warned anyone who was in Anonymous Operations IRC channels or downloaded and used the DDoS attack software LOIC that law enforcement has potentially logged their IP addresses. The poster, which has now made its way to more mainstream sites like Reddit, advises dumping hard drives, especially any IRC logs.

A Chinese man who voiced out for more democracy in China got a Nobel Peace Prize.... and house arrest.

Assange does something along the lines to the US and its allies, and gets persecution, threats of assassination, bogus rape charges, and jailtime in.... Sweden?
