Statement of Wikileaks about the Situation involving the Ecuadorian embassy

Original can be found here

In a communication this morning to the government of Ecuador, the UK threatened to forcefully enter the Ecuadorian embassy in London and arrest Julian Assange.

The UK claims the power to do so under the Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act 1987.

This claim is without basis.

By midnight, two hours prior to the time of this announcement, the embassy had been surrounded by police, in a menacing show of force.

Any transgression against the sanctity of the embassy is a unilateral and shameful act, and a violation of the Vienna Convention, which protects embassies worldwide.

This threat is designed to preempt Ecuador’s imminent decision on whether it will grant Julian Assange political asylum, and to bully Ecuador into a decision that is agreeable to the United Kingdom and its allies.

WikiLeaks condemns in the strongest possible terms the UK’s resort to intimidation.

A threat of this nature is a hostile and extreme act, which is not proportionate to the circumstances, and an unprecedented assault on the rights of asylum seekers worldwide.

We draw attention to the fact that the United Nations General Assembly has unanimously declared in Resolution 2312 (1967) that

„the grant of asylum. . . is a peaceful and humanitarian act and that, as such, it cannot be regarded as unfriendly by any other State.“

Pursuant to this resolution, a decision to grant asylum cannot be construed by another State as an unfriendly act. Neither can there be diplomatic consequences for granting asylum.

We remind the public that these extraordinary actions are being taken to detain a man who has not been charged with any crime in any country.

WikiLeaks joins the Government of Ecuador in urging the UK to resolve this situation according to peaceful norms of conduct.

We further urge the UK government to show restraint, and to consider the dire ramifications of any violation of the elementary norms of international law.

We ask that the UK respect Ecuador’s sovereign right to deliver a decision of its own making on Julian Assange’s asylum bid.

Noting that Ecuador has called for emergency summits of OAS and UNASUR in response to this development, WikiLeaks asks those bodies to support Ecuador’s rights in this matter, and to oppose any attempts to coerce a decision.

We note with interest that this development coincides with the UK Secretary of State William Hague’s assumption of executive responsibilities during the vacation of the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister.

Mr Hague’s department, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, has overseen the negotiations to date with Ecuador in the matter of Mr Assange’s asylum bid.

If Mr Hague has, as would be expected, approved this decision, WikiLeaks calls for his immediate resignation.

Stratfor bastelt an Strategie um Assange und Wikileaks kalt zu stellen

Stratfor hat scheinbar einen Narren an Assange gefressen und will ihn dort haben, wo ihn niemand klauen kann.

Die in den Artikeln zitierten Mails stammen aus dem Leak von vor ein paar Tagen, bei dem 5 Millionen eMails von Stratfor in die Hände von Wikileaks gefallen sind.

Zitat des Gründers von Stratfor (anderer Zusammenhang, aber wenn das die Geschäftspraktiken sind …):

„Wenn dies eine Quelle ist, von der du glaubst, dass sie wertvoll sein könnte, musst du die Kontrolle über sie gewinnen. Kontrolle heißt finanzielle, sexuelle oder psychologische Kontrolle…“

WIKILEAKS vs The Pentagon – Rap News

Nachrichten einmal als Rap. Dürfte wohl als Nerdcore durchgehen, oder?

Es geht um den „Internet Kill Switch“ (auch in Deutschland schon ein paar mal gefordert) und um WikiLeaks.

Thailand blockiert WikiLeaks

Auf der Webseite der Bangkok Post kann man lesen, dass Thailand WikiLeaks in ihrer Sperrliste hat. Laut einer Sprecherin des Ministeriums für Information, Kommunikation und Technologie wurde die Sperrung aus Sicherheitsgründen veranlasst.

Hat schon jemand was gefunden, was in der letzten Zeit über Thailand dort gelandet ist? Oder erwarten die nur, dass da bald einige Sachen landen? Oder wollen die wirklich nur sichergehen, dass wenn dort mal was landet, dass die Bevölkerung „sicher“ vor diesen Informationen ist?

„Collateral Murder“: 2 Soldaten melden sich zu Wort

Das Video, das Wikileaks vor einigen Tagen veröffentlicht hat und jetzt auf abrufbar ist, dürfte so ziemlich jeder mitbekommen haben. (en.Wikipedia)

Jetzt haben 2 Soldaten, die die Sache vom Boden aus miterlebt haben, einen Offenen Brief geschrieben und der BBC ein Interview gegeben.

An Open Letter of Reconciliation and Responsibility to the Iraqi People

From Current and Former Members of the U.S. Military

Peace be with you.

To all of those who were injured or lost loved ones during the July 2007 Baghdad shootings depicted in the „Collateral Murder“ Wikileaks video:

We write to you, your family, and your community with awareness that our words and actions can never restore your losses.

We are both soldiers who occupied your neighborhood for 14 months.  Ethan McCord pulled your daughter and son from the van, and when doing so, saw the faces of his own children back home.  Josh Stieber was in the same company but was not there that day, though he contributed to the your pain, and the pain of your community on many other occasions.

There is no bringing back all that was lost.  What we seek is to learn from our mistakes and do everything we can to tell others of our experiences and how the people of the United States need to realize we have done and are doing to you and the people of your country.  We humbly ask you what we can do to begin to repair the damage we caused.

We have been speaking to whoever will listen, telling them that what was shown in the Wikileaks video only begins to depict the suffering we have created.  From our own experiences, and the experiences of other veterans we have talked to, we know that the acts depicted in this video are everyday occurrences of this war: this is the nature of how U.S.-led wars are carried out in this region.

We acknowledge our part in the deaths and injuries of your loved ones as we tell Americans what we were trained to do and what we carried out in the name of „god and country“.  The soldier in the video said that your husband shouldn’t have brought your children to battle, but we are acknowledging our responsibility for bringing the battle to your neighborhood, and to your family.  We did unto you what we would not want done to us.

More and more Americans are taking responsibility for what was done in our name.  Though we have acted with cold hearts far too many times, we have not forgotten our actions towards you.  Our heavy hearts still hold hope that we can restore inside our country the acknowledgment of your humanity, that we were taught to deny.

Our government may ignore you, concerned more with its public image.  It has also ignored many veterans who have returned physically injured or mentally troubled by what they saw and did in your country.  But the time is long overdue that we say that the value of our nation’s leaders no longer represent us.  Our secretary of defense may say the U.S. won’t lose its reputation over this, but we stand and say that our reputation’s importance pales in comparison to our common humanity.

We have asked our fellow veterans and service-members, as well as civilians both in the United States and abroad, to sign in support of this letter, and to offer their names as a testimony to our common humanity, to distance ourselves from the destructive policies of our nation’s leaders, and to extend our hands to you.

With such pain, friendship might be too much to ask.  Please accept our apology, our sorrow, our care, and our dedication to change from the inside out.  We are doing what we can to speak out against the wars and military policies responsible for what happened to you and your loved ones.  Our hearts are open to hearing how we can take any steps to support you through the pain that we have caused.

Solemnly and Sincerely,

Josh Stieber, former specialist, U.S. Army
Ethan McCord, former specialist, U.S. Army

Die Toll Collect Verträge sind öffentlich, mehr oder weniger…

Auf Wikileaks sind die Verträge zum Aufbau und Betrieb von Toll Collect zu finden.

Nunja, nicht im Augenblick, denn im Augenblick ist die Seite so ziemlich tot, wir müssen also noch ein wenig warten, aber jetzt kommt es auf einige Stunden auch nicht mehr an, wenn wir vorher Jahre gewartet haben, oder?
