German Foundation on Funding WikiLeaks:


www.spiegel.de

Even though key payment channels have been blocked, donations for WikiLeaks keep flowing in. Hendrick Fulda is a board member of Germany's, one of the whistleblowing platform's main funding channels. He spoke to SPIEGEL about WikiLeaks' internal finances, PayPal's recent payment block and how support for the organization is booming.

This artice shows that wikileaks is still recieving financial support, more so than it ever previously had.

The Wau Holland Foundation also threatened PayPal with legal action, which forced PayPal to release wikileak's frozen account's funds...



SPIEGEL: The Ebay subsidiary PayPal justified halting donations by saying that WikiLeaks supports illegal activities.

Fulda: That is far-fetched and we took legal steps against it. PayPal reacted quickly and released the frozen donations. The criticism is that WikiLeaks is possibly encouraging people to break the law. PayPal is explicitly calling that an opinion, but continues to cite its business terms and conditions.


THIS IS AWESOME NEWS !

Go WikiLeaks!

figured u need to add the rest of the story so it isnt one sided.
WikiLeaks funded via Pirate Bay-linked firm

www.mediabistro.com...
WikiLeaks Still Funded by Pirate Bay Founder’s Startup

While major online financing services such as PayPal, MasterCard, and Visa have shut down their dealings with the embattled WikiLeaks, one microfinancing startup is still hanging on. Flattr, a micropayment startup created by Peter Sunde, co-founder of the infamous BitTorrent sharing site The Pirate Bay, still accepts donations on behalf of the document-leaking non-profit.


So who owns it?
the piratebay lol
So basically pirated software Mogul ..
Go figure criminal's tend to help criminals dont you think?

No human would want to become a criminal and be hounded. Crime had always been a last resort for the desperate man. So why had man turn desperate? There are no clear cut answers for the circumstances leading to it, but when society goes the utilitarian way, leaving many behind to starve or die, these people turn desperate and resort to crime as an answer.

Every human only wants to be free, to have justice, to prosper, to have peace and to progress, for himself as well as those he loves and who loved him. There is so much bounty on our planet to share for generations more But when that is taken away by those in power, he have nothing, and having nothing, he has nothing to lose and
W I L L F I G H T B A C K.

TPTB elities best wake up to this fact as well. Not ALL humans are sheep.

The issues with the 'big three' back pedaling financers Visa, Massa card, and PayPal just keep getting better and better:

Funding illegal Israeli settlements?
Priceless.



Visa, Mastercard and PayPal all enable donations to be made to US-registered groups funding illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank in defiance of international law.

It appears at least one of the major credit cards also enables donations to an extremist Jewish group that has placed a bounty on the lives of Palestinians.

All three have in the last week ceased enabling donations to WikiLeaks. Neither Mastercard nor Visa have explained the basis for their decision to do so. PayPal has backed away from its initial claim that the US State Department told PayPal WikiLeaks had broken the law after the claim was discredited. This is the third occasion on which PayPal has suspended payment services for WikiLeaks.


Priceless...

US tax dollars at work in the West Bank: Bounty money


Last Tuesday (December 1 2009) an investigative report in Haaretz revealed that Machanaim a US 501c3 tax exempt charity is funding the Task Force to Save the Nation and the Land (aka SOS Israel):

"the organization that offered every soldier refusing to evacuate a settlement, and the Kfir Brigade soldiers who publicly demonstrated their opposition to evacuation, NIS 1,000 for every day they spend in military prison".

..SOS Israel has expanded its range of monetary awards to IDF soldiers:

"A soldier holding the rank of Corporal, was awarded 1,800 shekels ($475) by the SOS Save the Land of Israel group Sunday for shooting a terrorist who tried to kill two Jews at a gas station 10 days ago"

The report criticized the Government for not taking action against a registered association inciting mutiny, noting also that it might be a good idea to ask the US to cease providing tax-exemptions for the funder.

UPDATE: December 9 2009 — Israeli attorney general orders investigation of SOS Israel. Better late than never. Will that be enough for the IRS to rescind tax-exempt status for the US charity funding it?


Seems like hypocracy at its finest to me!

One only needs remember that George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson, Paul Revere, Samual Adams, Robert Gates, Francis Scott Key, and the entire Military Order that made up America's Revolutionary Resistance (other than, but incluing the Army of the Continental Congress) were, all of them, branded as every sort of boogie man one can imagine, which included the OPINION of the British that they were criminals.

While you indeed are credited with you gracious inclusion of the micro financer supporting wikileaks that is itself financed by (PBS Comment) "Viewers Like You", your 'tyrrany supportive, crimial secrets merit legal protections' comments reveal in you the intentions of redirecting legitimacy through the use of disinformational tactics that unfortunately (for you) have FAILED...

So back to the back of the bus you go... that's a good lad.

The UK government has no legal reason to freeze Wikileaks funds, given that he is in prison because he is wanted for questioning about sexual misconduct, and not for anything to do with Wikileaks' activities - well, that's the official story, anyway. As long as that is the story, there are no grounds for action against WL. Even the Judge made the distinction clear in the first court hearing.
