(10 am. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

LONDON – WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Monday that financial problems may lead to the closure of the notorious secret-spilling site at the end of this year.

“If WikiLeaks does not find a way to remove this blockade we will simply not be able to continue by the turn of the new year,” he said. “If we don’t knock down the blockade we simply will not be able to continue.”

The banksters have succeeded in starving 95% of wikileaks’ funds, and they have stopped posting new leaks, in order to concentrate on fund-raising.

The statement says that in order to ensure survival, WikiLeaks must “aggressively fundraise in order to fight back against this blockade and its proponents.
