WikiLeaks News:
  • Documents released by the ACLU shed light on search and seizure of technology at borders. The documents relate to the seizure of Private Manning Support Network co-founder David House's electronics. From the analysis: "The records also show that HSI was acting in cooperation with—and perhaps at the request of—the Department of Justice, the Department of State, and the Army’s Criminal Investigative Division, not to protect our borders but to further a domestic investigation of the WikiLeaks disclosures."
  • WikiLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson was interviewed by Voice of Russia about Spy Files 3 and DreamWorks' WikiLeaks film "The Fifth Estate". Mr Hrafnsson comments on the seriousness of inaccuracies in "The Fifth Estate" as they will shape public opinion on ongoing matters.
  • In an interview with Global Post, Kristina Svartholm, mother of The Pirate Bay co-founder Gottfrid Svartholm (aka anakata), said that she believes charges are being pressed against him due to his involvement in WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks released documents relating to Mr Svartholm's imprisonment and prosecution last May, noting his work as a WikiLeaks volunteer, including his collaboration on the "Collateral Murder" video.

Chelsea Manning News:
  • The Private Manning Support Network is calling on people to write letters to Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan in support of Chelsea Manning's request for clemency. Maj. Gen. Buchanan is the only other person besides President Obama who has the power to ameliorate Pvt. Manning's sentence in the near future.
