Mastercard joins attack on WikiLeaks

MasterCard is the latest organisation to kowtow to Yankee imperialist powers and pull its services from Wikileaks.

According to Cnet, MasterCard said it was cutting off payments because WikiLeaks is engaging in illegal activity.

"MasterCard is taking action to ensure that WikiLeaks can no longer accept MasterCard-branded products," the credit card outfit said.

A spokesman said: "MasterCard rules prohibit customers from directly or indirectly engaging in or facilitating any action that is illegal." We assume he was talking about WikiLeaks but are unsure as to what illegal activities Mastercard thinks WikiLeaks has been involved in.

MasterCard was one of the ways in which the interested could donate to WikiLeaks, which is a not-for-profit organisation with no apparent means of financial support.

Mightily-miffed reactionary forces are slinging any mud they can find at WikiLeaks and its public face, Julian Assange. They are also seeking to cut off flows of funds to the organisation as well as its Internet pipe.

There are plenty of other ways to donate to the organisation as you can see here.

Alternatively you can send us an envelope stuffed with cash and we'll wander down the road and stick it through the bars of Mr Assange's cell.
