One recent US State Department cable that has been released by Wikileaks reveals the South Korean Vice Foreign Minister claims some Chinese officials are willing to see North Korea be re-unified with South Korea. Another shows the oil company Shell asked the US Embassy in Nigeria to lobby the government there over a Petroleum Industry Bill which Shell opposed.
However the arrest of spokesman Julian Assange in London, and attacks on the website’s ability to operate, have brought people out in the streets to support Wikileaks. After last week’s rallies in Brisbane, activists met last night and decided to keep the campaign going. They decided to hold another rally this Saturday, December 18. That rally will be at midday in Reddacliff Place in Brisbane Square in town, just across George St from the top of the Queen St Mall. Click here for a Google Map.
