WikiLeaks is an independent, not-for-profit online publisher that works to defend freedom of speech, media publishing and the improvement of our common historical record. WikiLeaks publishes documents of social, historical and political value that other organisations are unwilling to publish in full. It publishes original source material alongside news stories so that readers and historians alike can see evidence of the truth.
Through its publications, totalling millions of documents, WikiLeaks has shed light on hundreds of thousands of killings and billions of dollars' worth of corruption, some highlights are: a collection of 250,000+ diplomatic cables between the U.S. State Department and U.S. embassies around the world, hundreds of thousands of classified documents related to the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars, more than two million emails from Syrian political figures, ministries and associated companies, internal documents from the Church of Scientology, the loan book and other documents evidencing corruption by the largest bank in Iceland, and many more.
WikiLeaks has suffered under a financial blockade by PayPal, Visa, and Mastercard. This unjust and extra-judicial censorship has been a major source of inspiration for the Freedom of the Press Foundation.
