Swedish Pirate Party Will Host Several New Wikileaks Servers

18 Aug, 2010

Whistleblower site wikileaks that got famous after releasing 90,000 documents about the war in afghanistan (Afghanistan War Log) last month, but before that,  the site has been under fire and threats from US federal government officials publicly and secretly, specially after releasing a video of US Army Helicopter killing journalists in Baghdad. The main threat however is the site’s hosting.

Today torrentfreak revealed that during Julian Assange Wikileaks founder visit to Sweden, Wikileaks signed a deal with the Swedish Pirate Party to host the site.

“I love opportunities to demonstrate that one of the biggest differences between us and the other parties is that we positively leap at any and all changes to take real responsibility for changing the world, rather than just commission reports and avoiding blame like the archetypal politician,” Pirate Party leader Rick Falkvinge told TorrentFreak.

Swedish Pirate party partnership might offer “much needed” help to wikileaks if it gets voted into Parliament next month as it could use Parliamentary immunity to run the site from inside the Swedish Government, making it impossible to take the site offline through legal procedures.
According to Aasang the party might also help pass a legislation that guarantees press freedom by copying what he called “Iceland’s Modern Media Initiative” and might work in joint projects with Wikileaks.

According to Wikipedia the Pirate Party (Swedish: Piratpartiet) is a political party in Sweden founded in 2006, strives to reform laws regarding copyright and patents. The party’s agenda also includes support for a strengthening of the right to privacy, both on the Internet and in everyday life, and the transparency of state administration Last year the part was 3rd largest political party in Sweden. The party has a EU parliament seat. and plans to launch anonymous, log-free ISP.

There are dozens of Pirate Parties around the world.

Wikileaks plans to publish before the end of this month another 15,000 documents relates to the war in afghanistan but this time, names of Afghan spies might be removed.

  1. The Most Important Information  |  August 19th, 2010 at 1:58 AM #

    Americans don’t know the human tragedy the US army has caused in Afghanistan and Iraq, they do not know the US army and the CIA have killed 100s of thousands of civilians.

    But to most Muslims this is not new, so what is important to them is the names of the informants, the CIA agents who betrayed any human principle and sold themselves to CIA pigs. WikiLeaks plz expose their names so they live in shame for the rest of their life as they sold their sons and mothers for a cheap price.

    wikileaks exposing the Arab/Muslim CIA criminals is the best gift you can offer to mankind that would drive freedom to 2 billions salves who yarn for freedome.

    To those who do not know, there is nothing such as ethics in the CIA business, rape (men and women), killing, blackmail whatever … all ok to achieve any objective.
