The WikiLeaks Australian Citizens Alliance, WACA, is one of the oldest and most active WikiLeaks support groups in Australia. We run campaigns, events, produce independent media, innovate direct action activism, develop networks across the legal, media, arts and political fields; operate this website, Twitter and Facebook accounts and much more.WACA was formed from our profound response to the Australian Government’s hostility towards Wikileaks and our government’s complicity in the United States of America’s continued agenda to criminalise Julian Assange and the work of WikiLeaks.
2. To campaign to ensure Julian Assange is not ‘handed-over’ as a political prisoner to the United States of America or to any other country where he may face onward extradition to the USA.
3. To protect Wikileaks capacity to operate and its platform for protecting the rights of whistleblowers.
4. To defend the work of Wikileaks by insisting Governments around the world investigate the crimes revealed by Wikileaks and that they pursue prosecutions against those found to have committed crimes.
5. To defend the fundamental tenants of democracy, which we believe, include the right to privacy (no government surveillance), free speech, free assembly, free press and a free internet.
