Wikileaks Insurance File

The Free Speech Flag

It is no secret that I am a supporter of Wikileaks. I have even in the past donated money to their cause. Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States of America is credited to have said that "Information is the currency of democracy." Without free, and comfortable access to information, particularly information about our governments, we cannot dispose of corrupt public servants and replace them with officers with integrity. We need to know the about the things our governments are attempting to hide from us, so that we can make positive and righteous change.

Wikileaks have recently made available their second "insurance" file as a torrent. This encrypted file seems to be a back-up the Wikileaks documents, so that if something were to happen to the Wikileaks servers, the information would not be lost. So obviously when I saw a message posted by Anonymous asking for people to download the torrent and help with the seeding of the "Wikileaks Insurance Release 02-22-2012" I was happy to oblige.

If you feel similarly about the Wikileaks cause, and if you have comfortable access to the Internet with adequate space, the file is nearly 64 GB in size, please share the burden and ensure that truth survives. The size of the file is quite staggering as the previous insurance file that was put out in 2010 (contain the Afghan War materials) was a mere 1.4 GB in size.

Supporters, you can download the bittorrent-file here.

Once you have downloaded the whole file, you need not necessarily seed it all the time, unless you have the bandwidth, or their is a call to seed by Wikileaks. It is important to keep the file as "insurance" for Wikileaks. In other words, keep it until Wikileaks dumps it's next major release of information -- about 64 GB worth of information!
