The best way to spend your money this diwali – donate to Wikileaks

by Ritwik on October 26, 2011

Update: The donation page lists a number of methods you can use to help Wikileaks. Unfortunately it isn’t as easy as clicking once in Paypal. That’s the point. If it were, it wouldn’t be so important to donate ;)

From the wikileaks donation page

Censorship, like everything else in the West, has been privatized.

As a result of exposing U.S. embassies from around the world, five major US financial institutions, VISA, MasterCard, PayPal, Western Union and the Bank of America, have tried to economically strangle WikiLeaks The attack has blocked over 95% of our donations, costing tens of millions of dollars in lost revenue. The attack is entirely political. In fact, in the only formal review to occur, the US Treasury found that there were no lawful grounds to add WikiLeaks to financial blockade .

Your donations are vital to pay for our fight against this and other kinds of censorship, for Wikileaks’ projects, staff, servers and protective infrastructure. We are entirely supported by the general public.

I for one can’t think of a better way of spending my money this Diwali.
