Protection of whistle blowers has been one of the leading questions today.
In today’s world we want to bring change and this change and for that we need to bring revolution and this revolution can be brought by the information and the same is being carried out in the world currently by wiki leaks.
Wiki leaks exposes cables from all over the world and as a result world politics has cropped for stopping the wiki leaks or banning its operation. And they are forced to temporarily suspend publishing whilst they are struggling to secure their economic survival. For almost a year wikileaks have been fighting an unlawful financial blockade.
Apparently under US pressure, American financial firms like Visa, MasterCard, western union and pay pal had started pulling the plug on WikiLeaks. The immediate reason was the publishing of some 250,000 US state department cables last year.
Assange vowed to fight back the economic blockade, his group also issued a statement saying it would stop publishing in order to focus on making money, explaining that the blockade imposed by companies including Visa, MasterCard, Western Union and Pay Pal left it with no choice. But the most important about wiki leaks is the protection of whistle blowers as the names and identity of the information provider is never disclosed.
