Anarchists Launch Wikileaks Mirror, Assistance Program
The Center for a Stateless Society is mirroring Wikileaks and encouraging and assisting others in doing likewise.
Spangler, director of the Center for a Stateless Society, announced on Sunday that the Center is now mirroring Wikileaks -- an international whistle-blower site which reactionary elements in the US government have worked assiduously to suppress over the last week -- and encouraging and assisting others in doing likewise.
"I feel [US Secretary of State] Hillary Clinton's pain," says Spangler. "Wikileaks' release of 250,000 diplomatic cables previously hidden behind a state secrets wall has been tremendously embarrassing to her, not to mention implicating her in an international identity theft scheme that looks a lot like Watergate and the Zimmerman Telegram rolled into one.
"But embarrassment or not, state officials have no right to hide their misdeeds from the people who foot the bill, in money and blood, for government actions. Nor, now, do they have the power to do so."
Using custom software developed by C4SS web administrator Mike Gogulski, the mirror site (http://wikileaks.c4ss.org) updates daily from Wikileaks' servers regardless of where those servers are located.
C4SS is also making the software publicly available and encouraging others to mirror Wikileaks as well. See http://c4ss.org/
"The toothpaste is out of the tube and we intend to keep it out of the tube," says Spangler. "This information will remain publicly available to anyone who cares to look it over."
