Calls for demonstrations in support of Julian Assange, Bradley Manning, & Wikileaks.
Wikileaks appears to be doing us all a great service, but it will up to the people to ensure this is not taken as a reason for Orwellian measures on the world by the power structure that be. I think it is fair to say that people are waking up to the reality of our government, and this could serve as a 'tipping point' in favor of the people, but we have to seize the opportunity.

There are a number of options we could take in demonstrating. PayPal, who dumped Wikileaks from their website has its corporate offices located in San Jose. We could demonstrate in front of Feinstein's SF office, as she's the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, or any other place deemed relevant.

I just really want to protect freedom of speech and freedom of the press. This smear campaign against Wikileaks & Assange is intolerable. In the spirit of justice, and following the path of Daniel Ellsberg- Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, & Wikileaks should be protected.

There is a newly formed Facebook group called 'WikiLeaks Protests' to mobilize demonstrations across the world. Add it, & be sure to check out their google map of planned actions.

Look.....joining into the scam "protest" is a great way to let the authorities know who and where you are.

EFFECTIVE activist take direct action, with no names and no trace. Note the Hacktivists...they have the idea.

Do you REALLY want to engage in a game of WHACK A MOLE with the Powers when you are the MOLE?

TAKE DIRECT ACTION...if you choose not someone who does and keep your trap shut!
