Supporting Wikileaks and Freedom of Speech mdi-fullscreen
Guido is showing Wikileaks some love with Google-Juice. The IP address http://184.108.40.206/wiki/Wikileaks is the internet postcode for Wikileaks. A judge has ordered the web authorities to remove the website URL address from the internet so this is the only way directly access it now. This is where Guido uploads important documents (like that Northern Rock memo) and others they don’t want you to see…
Coincidentally Guido will be in London on Tuesday to speak to the Manifesto Club. The theme is “Thought Crime – from the Lyrical Terrorist to Beenie Man”. Guido will be putting the case for the freedom to offend everyone except the truth – alongside Hari Kunzru, novelist and deputy president of English PEN, Aki Nawaz, the front man of the group Fun-Da-Mental (famous as a ‘suicide bomb rapper’) and Brendan O’Neill from the Spiked clique of lefties turned libertarian
Apparently there will be readings from literature that has been banned over the past century. Guido might even try to crack a few Bernard Manning jokes. When: Tuesday 26 February Time: Doors open 7pm; event begins 8pm; bar open till 11pm Where: Corbet Place bar, 15 Hanbury St, London E1 6QR Cost: Free to Manifesto Club members; £5 non-members (pay on the door) – or join the Manifesto Club.
