Pirate Party Inks Deal To Host Wikileaks

The Swedish Pirate Party has inked a deal with WikiLeaks to host new servers for the controversial whistle-blowing website.

Tech news site THINQ reported that the Pirate Party had already offered to host Wiileaks' servers back in July.

In a statement to TorrentFreak, Pirate Party chief Rick Falkvinge said: “I love opportunities to demonstrate that one of the biggest differences between us and the other parties is that we positively leap at any and all changes to take real responsibility for changing the world.”

Wikileaks spokesperson Julian Assange said that the partnership between the two outfits will help them change the world.

"I am looking forward to future ways we can help each other improve the world,” he said.

"Western democracies are not always as free as one might think, and freedom of the press needs constant vigilance."

Assange recently declared that WikiLeaks will not be intimated by the Pentagon - or any other organisation - and that he will soon publish the remaining 15,000 confidential military documents on the site.
