Read our review of the first massively digital play, Mi Minor. Also, for the fun of it, a new article on Pinima President's latest plot (part of Mi Minor's role playing game, that we proudly joined since its inception).

Zero Dark Thirty has so far widely been seen as a pro-torture propaganda film. Now declassified documents - obtained by Gawker - show that the filmmakers have abided by the CIA's demands to keep out some parts. Read Gawker's article.
These documents, that you can freely browse on Wikileaks' website, are of undeniable hiostorical importance, and they have not been made public despite the fact that many were already under no restriction for a while.
Consequently, and as Kristinn Hrafnsson said commenting the leak, Wikileaks is doing the job of governments.

The year starts sadly with the loss of Aaron Swartz, who took his own life after having been bullied by US prosecutors and officials from his school, the MIT.
Aaron was an emblematic and courageous figure of the defense of digital freedom, and he will be remembered through his legacy and work:

Two major events today:
Julian Assange will give a Christmas speech to mark his sixth month inside the Ecuadorean embassy, and will most-likely provide details on the recent victory against the financial blockade of Wikileaks, what to expect from Wikileaks in 2013 (like a Wikileaks political party in Australia), and maybe on the Sweden/Australia/US borne case that forced him to find refuge in the first place.
Swiss television channel RTS (Radio Télévision Suisse) has broadcast a report on tax fraud by Swiss citizens, and interviews Rudolf Elmer to show how Switzerland prefers to go after those who expose tax evasion and fraud rather than those who commit it. Watch the report here (in French).
Congratulations to Wikileaks for winning the case against Valitor (formerly VISA Iceland) after the latter refused to process individual donations to Wikileaks, creating a financial blockade that has been initated by other branches of VISA, as well as Mastercard, Paypal, Western Union, and Bank of America. Valitor has decided to appeal the decision, but we remain confident that the appeal will confirm the first instance decision (Iceland went bankrupt a few years ago because of the lack of transparency of its financial system; since then Iceland is supportive of Wikileaks and doesn't play the foul US game). Other legal actions will be taken by Wikileaks in Belgium and Denmark to fight the extra-legal blockade.
Reminder: we are focusing our efforts on Wikileaks- and Assange-related issues because we believe they are at the heart of digital rights and democracy. You can follow us on Twitter for other news.
UK Surpeme Court also rejected Assange's submission to reopen the case and challenge the point on which the court based its decision. This open the way for the his extradition, unless he applies for an appeal at the European Court of Human Rights and his application is accepted. Click here for more.

Tomorrow is the dead-line for Assange's lawyers to argue in front of the Supreme Court's judges on the Vienna Convention (which served as a basis for the court's verdict, but was not discussed during the hearing).
This morning the UK Supreme Court has ruled against Assange's appeal. This creates a precedent and opens the possibility for any executive branch-related police or justice entity to extradite a EU resident to another EU country even without sufficient proof, just with accusations.
The UK Supreme Court's decision regarding Assange's appeal should be made public any time now.

BREAKING: After several months of silent work, Wikileaks, along with twenty-five media organizations (excluding The Guardian, New York Times, Le Monde, El Pais, and Der Spiegel, who have turned against the rganisation in order to please the establishment), publishes The Global Intelligence Files (or The GIFiles): over five million e-mails leaked from intelligence company Stratfor.
Congratulations to Wikileaks for keeping its promise of giving the highest impact to releases of secret information of public importance, and this despite being under attack from all possible angles (judicial, financial, smear). Remember to support Wikileaks and Assange in their ongoing fights.

Wikileaks has revealed that no one of its members has been invited to speak at the UNESCO conference about... Wikileaks. E-mail exchanges between Wikileaks spokesman and the organisers of the event is worth reading, and reveals how ridiculously biased that conference is, and how much vengeful US interests are still after Wikileaks' reputation.
Amid an exceptional protest by some of the main actors of the web, SOPA and PIPA have been pulled out by congress. However, regarding the motivation and gains expected by the private interests behind them, one shouldn't be too naive: expect them to come back soon in one form or another.
Happy New Year everyone! 2012 will be busy, with the following priorities: bring an end to the witch-hunt against Julian Assange, continue to support Rudolf Elmer, provide netizens and cyber-activists with the knowledge and tools to help them protect their online experience... we will be there to take up the challenge!
Our special wishes go to our volunteers who helped us source, proofread, translate, create, publish... they shall all be thanked here!
