Emne: Re: [GLOBAL-L] final statement for you to send out (and to check your IDs as listed)

Sorry, neglected to attach this signatory list without emails which is the one you should send to possible signatories



This is the statement we adopted by consensus along with the names of the people who indicated by email they want to sign it. If your ID is not quite what you want, let me know. Also if you want to sign and are not listed here, let me know. The emails will not go out to the public; I'm just making a list in case we want to contact everyone who signed.

Now we have to distribute it and get more signatures. I'm going to contact the other lists I belong to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> and [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

Please send this to other individuals and groups. You can have signatories forward their information either to you, and you pass it on it me, or to me directly. [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. Ask for name, ID and country. Include their email but indicate it will not appear in the distributed statement.

Let's try to complete this by the end of the week!

JOURNALISTS' STATEMENT ON ATTACKS ON WIKILEAKS


Julian Assange, founder of the whistle-blowing organization Wikileaks, is being angrily criticized and threatened for his part in huge leaks of military documents on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq (the 'War Diaries'). He is being accused of irresponsibly releasing confidential military information, of endangering lives of people named in the leaked military reports and even of espionage. Some media organizations have joined in this criticism.



We, journalists and journalist organizations from many countries, express our support for Mr Assange and Wikileaks. We believe that Mr Assange has made an outstanding contribution to transparency and accountability on the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, subjects where transparency and accountability has been severely restricted by government secrecy and media control. He is being attacked for releasing information that should never have been withheld from the public.



We believe Wikileaks had the right to post confidential military documents because it was in the interest of the public to know what was happening. The documents show evidence that the US Government has misled the public about activities in Iraq and Afghanistan and that war crimes may have been committed.



Has Wikileaks endangered lives? There was legitimate criticism of Wikileaks for not vetting the Afghanistan documents fully enough, with some names such as informers being released. Fortunately there is no evidence that anyone has been injured or killed as a result. We note that Wikileaks learned from that mistake and has been much more careful with the Iraq documents. Overall, Wikileaks' factual reporting of numerous undisputed abuses and crimes is of far greater significance than the widely criticised mistakes over inadequate redacting.



Mr Assange is being personally pressured because of his involvement in the military leaks, including threats of espionage charges. Mr. Assange is no more guilty of espionage than any journalist or any whistleblower.  This is a terrible precedent and one that is contrary to open government.



If it is espionage to publish documents provided by whistle blowers, then every journalist will eventually be guilty of that crime. Mr Assange deserves our support and encouragement in the face of the attacks.



Since it was launched in 2006, Wikileaks has been an extraordinary resource for journalists around the world, furthering transparency at a time when governments are reducing it. Although it is not part of the media, and does not purport to be, its mission of informing the public and reducing unjustified secrecy complements and assists our work. As grateful beneficiaries of Wikileaks and Mr Assange's work, we stand in support of them at this time.

Subject: final statement for you to send out (and to check your IDs as listed)
Importance: High

This is the statement we adopted by consensus along with the names of the people who indicated by email they want to sign it. If your ID is not quite what you want, let me know. Also if you want to sign and are not listed here, let me know. The emails will not go out to the public; I'm just making a list in case we want to contact everyone who signed.

Now we have to distribute it and get more signatures. I'm going to contact the other lists I belong to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> and [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. Plus other organizations as well as individual journalists.

Please send this to individuals and groups you have contact with or know about. Gavin is taking charge of UK, Mark of France, I’m focusing on the US, and we all split the rest of the world. (Plus everyone can contribute to the US, UK and France names). You can have signatories forward their information either to you, and you pass it on it me, or to me directly. [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. Ask for name, ID and country. Include their email but indicate it will not appear in the distributed statement.

Let's try to complete our efforts by the end of the week so that names come back at least by early next week. And we can put it out when there is a critical mass.

Any suggestions for the statement title?
