Assange's arrest won't stop WikiLeaks cables

December 7th, 2010

WIKILEAKS will release more secret US diplomatic cables despite the arrest tonight of its Australian founder Julian Assange, a journalist working for the whistleblowing website said.

``In terms of what is happening, all is on schedule, all that stuff will keeping rolling out as ever. That's all I can tell you,'' WikiLeaks journalist James Ball said.

Assange, 39, who spent part of his childhood south of the Gold Coast in Lismore, surrendered to British police in London tonight on a Swedish arrest warrant on suspicion of rape and sexual assault. The former computer hacker denies the charges.


His lawyers have said Sweden's case could be linked to WikiLeaks' decision to release over the past week thousands of confidential US State Department documents.

Several newspapers around the world have been publishing the WikiLeaks cables and a spokesman for the website last week said they had copies of many of the documents.

Assange last week said he had sent out thousands more encrypted copies which would be released in the event that he or the website were ''taken out''.

''The cablegate archive has been spread ... to over 100,000 people in encrypted form. If something happens to us, the key parts will be released automatically,'' he said in a live webchat with the Guardian newspaper.

''History will win. The world will be elevated to a better place. Will we survive? That depends on you.''





Julian Assange, jumped on his bike two days before he an interview with police that he consented and agreed to. He chose to flee a country where he allegedly had non-consensual unprotected sex when he specifically knew these women only consented to protected sex. That's rape in almost any country, but the women are being nice, they just want him to disclose his STD / HIV Status.
For that he deserves to be deported, immediately, he is a disgrace to Australian men.
