5 December, 2010 — Information Clearing House

This Website Supports The Work Of Wikileaks and Julian Assange
A Call To Action

I call on all of ICH readers to donate towards to cost involved in hosting and other expenses at Wikileaks. At a time when our government is employing all of the resources at its disposal to destroy this organization and its principals we can not remain silent.

We must put our money where our mouth is.

Do we live in a free society or are you afraid of the US government?

Are You Brave Enough To Take A Stand and say: “The world needs Wikileaks.”
