Australia claims Wikileaks is illegal

Written by Nick Farell

Will probably be blacklisted in the future
Australians may not be allowed to see the Wikileaks site in the future.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard says the leaking of classified documents via the WikiLeaks website is "illegal". The Australian Federal Police are investigating whether WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange's publication of secret US cables breaches any local laws.

However Gillard told Fairfax Radio she was receiving briefings on the Australian security officials' assessment of the documents. She slammed the placement of this information on the WikiLeaks website claiming that it's a grossly irresponsible and an illegal thing to do.

Legal experts say there are a number of jurisdictional problems with prosecuting the publisher, including the fact the documents are American in origin and that the website is based in Europe. However Australia is planning to filter the web of “illegal content” in the future as part of its “great rabbit proof fence” filters.

If Wikileaks is what the government considers “illegal” then it is fair to assume it will be censored in the future.

What the government says is bad for us probably means it's what we need to know. Those people aren't elected officials half the time anyway as many of them are appointed.

I don't see what's wrong in exposing the dirty side of government and politics. You know there's no such thing as a "perfect" government? Only uneducated and or uninformative people sees their government as perfect [like my mom. Don't tell here that].

As much as I love the Australian people - as much I hate their government and it's Nazi methods.

No, that's communist zionist jew methods; the Germans didn't finance WW2 it was the jews as they needed an excuse to demonify white people to steal our money by mentioning Nazis at every possible instance.

Thumbs up if you can think for yourself or thumbs down if you can't or are a freedom hating communist.

With all these recent censorship stuff happening, Australia sounds closer and closer to another China.

Yes, jews consider the truth trolling, it's the kind of thing you'd expect from people who paid to have their own people killed to be able to make a fast buck.

Australia is a wonderful place to visit. Though they have major issues in terms of trying hard to strip the rights away from its citizens which can eventually trigger a global anti-rights catastrophe, WOW, what am I saying it’s already started..............
