On WikiLeaks:

On Julian Assange:
  • An anonymous blogger writes on the Australian government's offer to assist three anti-whalers who were detained after boarding a Japanese whaling ship, and the continued lack of similar support for Australian citizen Julian Assange.
  • Julian Assange did an exclusive interview with The Power Index, where he discusses the extradition case against him, Occupy Wall Street, and the NDAA. In the interview, he says that, "We hear that it is likely in January that the European Commission will make its decision on whether to engage in a full-scale investigation into the behaviour of the card companies."
