Julian Assange accused banks of blockading WikiLeaks and that journalists have become ladder climbers and must be held to greater account, and that there is a ”new McCarthyism” in the United States. Assange says WikiLeaks’ next ”battle” to make sure governments and corporations cannot use the web as a surveillance tool.
CNN: ”On Thursday, 287 documents appeared on the WikiLeaks site about the global surveillance and arms industry. The dump provided many documents to mine, and it’s still unclear what they might all mean. The Washington Post and other outlets called it a comeback for the site and for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.”
Swedish officials have said that the sex crime case has nothing to do with WikiLeaks. But Assange discard that allegation.
