For further information on the banking blockade against WikiLeaks download this PDF.
A kit with full information on the blockade and tools to assist WikiLeaks through it can be downloaded here.

For some examples of WikiLeaks-driven global reform together with selected feedback from other organisations, please click here. It includes overviews of WikiLeaks releases, descriptions of the impact and relevant press articles.

Issues Regarding the Financial System that Should Be Made Understandable to the General Public

- Who really controls VISA? It is carried in everyone’s pocket around the world. It used to be called BankAmericard. Who is controlling it now?
- What inspired the FBI to coordinate efforts in four different jurisdictions to prosecute young people with penalties of up to 15 years in prison in the case of Operation Avenge Assange (the attacks on PayPal)? What are the issues of proportionality, predictability of the law in these cases?
- Why are private financial companies used to create censorship? What is the effect of these companies being used as an arm to deliberately undermine the Constitution?
- How do these financial institutions impinge on people’s rights? – Human rights, freedom of speech, freedom of association and economic freedoms in a digital age? Are these financial institutions undermining the basic principles of democracy?
- What do the UN High Commission of Human Rights (Navanethem Pillay), the UN Special Rapporteur of the Right of Freedom of Opinion (Frank La Rue) and the OAS Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression (Catalina Botero) say about WikiLeaks banking blockade?
- Whilst you cannot donate to WikiLeaks what else can you buy with VISA? – For example, Visa allows you to:
• Donate to the Holocaust denial website ‘Institute for Historical Review’ and other similar anti-semitic organisations
• Donate to the KKK as well as The English Defence League (which Norwegian killer Breivik had ties to)
• Buy firearms (including those used by Breivik in Norway)
• Subscribe to pornographic sites such as ‘Barely Legal’
• Donate to the homophobic Americans for Truth About Homosexuality
- How are credit comprehensive records used for surveillance purposes? – Everyone’s personal data is connected to these cards. Information about most domestic payments go straight to the U.S. and Washington.
- Why isn’t there a widely used European card?
- Is Visa the largest currency in the world for everyday people?
- What is Bitcoin and why is it necessary?
- What is the Chinese lesson? – China has its own payment system, and has been very restrictive with VISA as a matter of state policy.
- What are the sovereignty-related concerns under VISA, Mastercard and PayPal? – They have effective control across economic borders.
- Why is the only credit card for the Olympics VISA? – The contrast of exclusion of all others in an event that is about unity, competition and inclusivity.
- What is the history of anti-trust violations by VISA and Mastercard and why is this allowed to continue? Can they ever be effectively sanctioned?
- How did the Bank of America use HB Gary to attack WikiLeaks? What was the involvement of the US Department of Justice? What has been the outcome of the complaint?
