Since December 7, 2010 – within ten days of the launch of Cablegate – an arbitrary and unlawful financial blockade of payments to WikiLeaks has been imposed by Bank of America, VISA, MasterCard, PayPal and Western Union. The attack has destroyed 95% of their revenue.

If you want WikiLeaks to be around in 2013, it’s time to show them your support. This Christmas, give the gift of truth and support WikiLeaks.

beat-the-blockade

Welcome to Beat the Blockade. Here you will find lots of different methods for supporting WikiLeaks, from direct donations to the purchase of blockade-beating WikiLeaks clothing and music.

WikiLeaks have, in their short history, been responsible for publishing more secret and classified documents than than the rest of the world’s press combined. However their courageous journalism comes at a cost. Since December 2010 WikiLeaks has been the subject of an unlawful blockade by Bank of America, PayPal, Visa, MasterCard and Western Union. This blockade has deprived them of 95% of their potential revenue from supporter donations. This is politically driven censorship, pure and simple. It must not be allowed to stand.

WikiLeaks is fighting this blockade and continuing to publish significant releases. However without your help, they may not survive. Please consider supporting WikiLeaks today and together we will beat the blockade.

donate-via-credit-card


WikiLeaks have found some ways around the financial blockade by Visa and Mastercard.

1. Use your Credit Card via the FDNN Banking Payment System
FDNN are accepting donations for WikiLeaks using Visa and MasterCard, through the French system Carte Bleue.









Currency Converter



Alternatively you can donate via the WikiLeaks website OR direct on the FDNN website

Notes from FDNN (Fund for the Defense of Net Neutrality- Fonds de Défense de la Net Neutralité)
The amount you enter here will be registered as a pledge by credit card, then you will be redirected to Crédit Mutuel’s online payment site (security certificate = paiement.creditmutuel.fr), where you will enter your credit card number. Thus, Beat the Blockade, WikiLeaks and FDNN will at no time have your credit card number, which is a guarantee of security for you. Your bank statement will show ‘FD2N PARIS FRA’.

If you decide to cancel this donation, or if the transaction with the server of the bank fails, the gift will be canceled, or go into standby (and will be canceled much later), but you will not be committed to anything.

2. Use your Credit Card via Freedom of the Press Foundation
The Freedom of the Press Foundation is dedicated to helping promote and fund aggressive, public-interest journalism focused on exposing mismanagement, corruption, and law-breaking in government. They accept tax-deductible donations to a variety of journalism organizations dedicated to government transparency and accountability.

The initial fundraising campaign will run through January 31 and fund four independent media outlets: The National Security Archive, MuckRock News, The UpTake, and WikiLeaks. Individuals can donate money through the Freedom of the Press Foundation and adjust what percentage of the donation goes to each of the recipient organizations.

With Flattr you can both give and receive donations. Set up an account and decide how much you’d like to spend per month, for example $5.

Flattr counts up all of your clicks at the end of each month and distributes your monthly spend between everything you’ve clicked on. You can now also directly donate up to $50 at a time. So please use it, especially since Flattr supports WikiLeaks donations. If you are not logged in to Flattr you will be directed to their homepage. Either log in, or sign up and then click this link again to go to the WikiLeaks Flattr page.
